Good Housekeeping recently named Lambertville one of America’s 50 Prettiest towns, sited for it’s quaint population under 4,000 people but more than 40 local restaurants. It joined other picturesque locations like Stowe, Vermont; Beaufort, South Carolina; and even nearby Jim Thorpe, Pennslyvania.
And this isn’t the first time that the streets of Lambertville have been recognized; Forbes named Lambertville one of America’s 15 prettiest towns in 2013:
To non-Jerseyans who are used to interacting with the state largely through the lens of the Turnpike or through the broadcasted antics of rabble-rousers on its shores, it’s sometimes easy to forget that New Jersey really does earn its moniker as “the Garden State.” Tiny Lambertville, on the shores of the Delaware River in western New Jersey, packs a lot of small-town punch, welcoming visitors with some of the best antique shopping in the Northeast, as well as with its selection of galleries, shops, and restaurants. “It’s quaint as heck, with a lot of old Atlantic flare,” says Evans. Stay at one of the town’s welcoming B&Bs and save yourself the drive home – located just an hour and a half from Midtown Manhattan, the country charm seems a world away.
