When you’re in Hunterdon on business, think about bringing along your spouse, and maybe even the family. There’s plenty for everyone to do, whether it’s sightseeing, shopping or sampling fine cuisine.
While you’re in business meetings, your spouse can visit the historic Flemington courthouse, site of the sensational 1935 trial famous for the kidnapping of aviator Charles Lindbergh’s son.
Flemington is also famous for its shopping and is chock full of colorful Victorian "Painted Ladies" and a fine collection of Greek Revival buildings.
If the kids are in tow, they might enjoy an old-fashioned train ride on the Black River & Western railroad through some very picturesque countryside.
Nearby Lambertville is an historic site on the Delaware River that’s home to a plethora of antique dealers, as is Frenchtown, further north along the river. Lodging is available at several cozy bed and breakfasts in the area as well as at various hotels throughout the county.
You might want to throw your golf clubs into the trunk so you can catch a few rounds at one of the county’s picturesque and challenging public courses. Hunterdon has a renowned 18-hole, 28-acre miniature golf course to entertain the whole family. For a more in-depth baseball experience, catch a game at Trenton Thunder stadium or Somerset Patriots stadium, where America’s favorite sport is always a home run.
Where do you go for a bite to eat? The possibilities are endless, ranging from homemade muffins for breakfast to dinner at a four-star restaurant, and everything in between, including a diverse offering of ethnic fare.
