New Jersey Has 2 of the Best ‘Thanksgiving Towns’ in America
Thanksgiving is a lovely time of year. It’s a happy time to be with family and friends. Some towns in America just encompass that Thanksgiving spirit, with a general feeling of warmth, comfort and home. These towns also have some fun fall activities, from cider mills to apple orchards to pumpkin picking. As it turns out, New Jersey has one of the best “Thanksgiving towns” in America.
The list comes from Country Living, who knows a lot about the coziest cities in America. “From apple picking to pretty porch spotting, embrace all the best things about fall in a new place this holiday,” they state in the article. “Whether you spend a lot on a luxury resort or a little on a cheap place to visit during Thanksgiving, we guarantee you’ll be grateful for the new perspective, the shared memories, and a delicious slice of pie that you didn’t have to spend hours making yourself.”
Before we get to our area, let’s look at the No. 1 best Thanksgiving town in America. It’s Charlottesville, Virginia. Of the spot, Country Living says, “Home to the University of Virginia, this picturesque college town offers a bucolic blend of historic buildings, rolling pastures, and plenty of wineries and cideries. Leave the cooking to the pros with a pre-fixe Thanksgiving dinner at Keswick Hall or The Quirk, then walk off your meal with a leisurely stroll along the pedestrian-only downtown Mall.”

So, what about our state? Coming in at No. 3 is Lambertville, New Jersey. Of the spot, Country Living says, “Also known as ‘The Antiques Capital of New Jersey,’ this former factory town is now a flourishing country outpost for antiques and the arts—and a postcard-perfect home base for small-town hopping along the Delaware River. Catch an indie flick in an old supermarket at Acme Screening Room, or enjoy aperitifs while wandering Black Shed, a 28-acre destination garden center that is also home to a full bar and 100 free-range show chickens.” Find the full tally here.
