WELCOME TO LAMBERTVILLE, NEW JERSEY – VOTED ONE OF AMERICA’S PRETTIEST TOWNS BY FORBES MAGAZINE
FORBES MAGAZINE, 2013.
The view of Lambertville has changed little over the last one hundred years. Nestled on the east bank of the Delaware River, its tree-lined streets, Victorian houses and Federal row homes and the graceful lines of its church spires continue to greet the eye as they did in the 1800s.
Today the mill whistles are quiet, the railroad all but gone, and the canal now a part of New Jersey’s longest park. The historic homes and restored public buildings remain in which visitors now find a variety of inviting shops, including art galleries, antique stores, unique crafts and specialties, bed and breakfasts, inns, and restaurants. Lambertville is known as “The Antique Capital of New Jersey,” and it certainly lives up to the title. Antique collectors will find everything from 18th-century furniture and decorative arts to 50′s Modern.
Our region is also renowned for its flourishing art community. Lambertville’s many galleries have created a haven for art collectors; the works of area artists both past and present are featured.
Sports enthusiasts will find much to interest them here in addition to the Delaware River. The Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park runs through the heart of the town, offering scenic recreation opportunities for walking, jogging, biking, or even cross-country skiing. Take a canoe ride on the canal or go tubing in the river. The choice is yours.
Come and enjoy our hospitality for a day trip or a weekend getaway. We have many fine restaurants and welcoming places to stay. From a romantic dining experience to a family celebration, from historic bed and breakfast accommodations to a riverside luxury hotel, you’ll find a choice that is just right for you.
Come visit Lambertville, the jewel of New Jersey’s west coast.
