Visiting Lambertville, NJ
Across the Delaware River lies Lambertville, NJ, the smaller but equally charming “sister city” that is known for its well-preserved architecture. It’s also known as the “Antiques Capital of New Jersey,” so be sure to check out the shops for hidden treasures. Meanwhile, wine enthusiasts can enjoy tastings at one of the many wineries in the region on both sides of the river, including Crossing Vineyards and Winery in Newtown, PA, and Hopewell Valley Vineyards in Pennington, NJ.
Take in the History
Our Doylestown, PA, apartments for rent also offer easy access to day trips that are ideal for history buffs. Just 30 minutes away is Washington Crossing Historic Park, which invites you to explore 500 acres of American history, including the site where then-Gen. George Washington crossed the Delaware River and turned the tide of the Revolutionary War. The state park also is home to Bowman’s Hill Tower, which offers a bird’s-eye view of the river and surrounding countryside. If you’re willing to travel a bit farther, consider a daytime getaway to another famous Revolutionary War spot – Valley Forge National Historical Park, just a 50-minute drive and the site of the third winter encampment of the Continental Army led by Washington.
Both parks are also great for nature lovers and hiking enthusiasts. But for even more natural beauty, check out Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve, where you’ll find 4.5 miles of trails and 700 native species growing in diverse habitats such as mature hardwood forests, steep hillsides, wetlands and more.
