The Best Winter Getaways Near Frenchtown, NJ

Are you ready for a vacation? One of these three places, all located about an hour from Frenchtown, NJ, may be the ideal place for your winter getaway.

Lambertville, NJ 

Hurricane Ida may have temporarily disrupted life in Lambertville, but the plucky town located down the river from Frenchtown quickly rebounded. Today, many stores and businesses are open once again, making Lambertville a popular getaway location in addition to Frenchtown.

It may be cold outside, but that doesn’t have to stop you from enjoying the shops and restaurants in the bustling shopping district. Bundle up and visit a few boutiques or check out the many antique stores in town. If it’s just too chilly to spend too much time outdoors, view a film at the Acme Screening Room or take in a performance at the Music Mountain Theatre. During the winter, you can see Noises Off (January 7 – 23), Viva Las Vegas (January 28 – February 13), or Gypsy (February 18 – March 6) at the theatre. If you’ve exhausted everything to see and do in Lambertville, venture across the bridge and explore New Hope.

The Lambertville House offers a convenient home base while you’re in town. Splurge on a luxurious courtyard suite king room and enjoy the gas fireplace and two-person whirlpool.

Flemington, NJ  

There’s plenty to do in Flemington, Hunterdon County’s quaint county seat. A stroll along the Historic Flemington Trail is an excellent way to familiarize yourself with the area. The town offers a downloadable trail map for your convenience. After you’ve finished exploring Flemington’s historic sites, visit a few shops and galleries or enjoy a leisurely lunch or dinner at one of the town’s highly rated restaurants.

A pot of tea and a scone at Teaberry’s Tea Garden will help you warm up if you’re feeling a little chilly after your stroll through town. Work off those extra calories with a visit to the Gravity Vault, an indoor rock climbing gym that offers 17,500 square feet of climbing and 5,800 square feet of bouldering. In the evening, visit the Stangl Factory for a concert or open mic night.

Hotel options in Flemington include the Hampton Inn, Ramada Inn, and Travel Inn and Suites.

Princeton, NJ

A winter getaway to Princeton may be just what you need to beat the winter blahs. If you’re a history buff, you’ll want to pay a visit to the Morven Museum and Garden. The house was built in the 1750s by Richard Stockton, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. During a self-guided tour of the museum, you’ll learn about the lives and contributions of the people who called Morven home.

Did you have a more active experience in mind for your Princeton getaway? Lace up your skates and brush up on your figure eights at the Mercer County Ice Skating Center or Glice skating rink at Palmer Square.

With so many upscale dining options available, it probably won’t be easy to choose the perfect place for your evening meal. Fortunately, you’ll be able to try several dining hot spots during a multi-day getaway.

At the end of a long day seeing the sights, you’ll be glad you choose a hotel in town, like the Peacock Inn. The renovated 18th-century colonial mansion offers comfortable accommodations and a Zagat-rated restaurant.

If you don’t have time for a getaway, spending a few hours in downtown Frenchtown is an excellent way to recharge and relax. Visit the ArtYard, antique shops, boutiques, and art galleries, or enjoy a relaxing meal at one of the many restaurants.

When you live at Country Classics at Frenchtown or Harrison Square, you’ll be close to everything Frenchtown has to offer. Frenchtown is now for sale, find out more information below!
