How lucky are we? Hunterdon & Bucks County swept Travel & Leisure’s list of the Best Towns in America to Celebrate the 4th of July.
Lambertville, came in at #13, surrounded by our Bucks County neighbors in New Hope (#6); Newtown, PA (#4), and Doylestown, PA (#18).
Here’s what Travel & Leisure had to say:
On the Delaware River, Lambertville exudes enough Revolutionary War history to make it a natural spot to kick back for the holiday. As the midway point between New York City and Philly, it provided an outpost for General Washington and his army, which once camped at an orchard at the corner of Bridge and Union streets. (Now at that spot you’ll find Giuseppe’s, a 50-plus-year-old family pizzeria.) For a hotel with historic street cred, stay at the 26-room Lambertville House, which has welcomed guests—among them presidents Andrew Johnson and Ulysses S. Grant—since 1821.
While we’ll miss Friday night fireworks this year, there are still lots of fun things to do to celebrate Independence Day in Hunterdon County.
