Lambertville - But Seriously
I hope the folks of Lambertville don't take offense at my lighthearted page about their town. Its really a charming little village that is pure historic Americana. If your in the Philadelphia area for a few days and want to escape the hustle of the large city, by all means...
Lambertville - On The Delaware River
The historic Delaware River runs directly between New Hope ane Lambertville and forms the border between Pennsylvania and New Jersey. On the Lambertville side of the river you will also see the Delaware and Raritan Canal. The canal was completed in 1834 but at the expense of...
Run Tippi Run
When I was leaving Lambertville I saw the top of the railway station and almost went into a panic. I thought I was reliving a moment from Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds. This reminded me so much of the scene where the birds gathered and waited to peck the birdseed out of Tippi...
Lambertville - Many inns and hotels
There are many quaint and beautiful inns, hotels, and resturants in Lambertville. Here is the first one you will see after crossing the river. At first glance it reminded me of the some of the buildings in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Only you can't drink in the...
Lambertville - The Marshall House
After crossing the bridge you will find many historic houses that have been renovated. Many contain antique stores, bed and breakfasts and restaurants. The one pictured here is the restored historis home of James W. Marshall. Now you may be asking yourself why am I pointing...
Lambertville - You have to cross the bridge
If your visiting New Hope, Pennsylvania and want to see Lambertville also, you have to cross the bridge. You can drive across or you can walk. We decided to walk. We had just paid $15.00 to park our car for the day in New Hope, so there was no reason to move the car and give...

Hart's Tavern: Great Burgers!
This is a typical pub atmosphere, furnished in dark woods with tables and booths available.
The French Onion Soup and Spinach Artichoke Dip, which I shared, was very good. But when my Chili Burger arrived---stand back!! It was overflowing with chili and melted cheddar...
Lambertville Station Restaurant: Eat at this former Train Station!
When living in New Jersey we visited Lambertville often, always stopping for lunch or dinner at The Lambertville Station. I loved the warm wood floors and touch of brass throughout the building! The fact that it's in a 19th century renovated train station made it...
Walk Across the Delaware
Your are going to be walking everywhere, because all the cute little shops are practically on top of one another. You can walk across the bridge from Lambertville to New Hope and back, just be sure to wear shoes that are not too wobbly, because the walkway consists of uneven...

We drive and take Route 31 or Route 29 for the most scenic views of the Delaware and the NJ countryside. There is also bus service from NYC on Trans Bridge Lines. Call them at 1-800-962-9135 for more information.Walk. Park the car and walk. Good luck with parking the car....
Coach Factory Outlet: Coach Leather Bags
This store had pretty good deals on Coach leather handbags and accessories. No signature C prints, though, just leather. I bought a black leather bag, French purse wallet, leather wristlet, mens' wallet, and leather photo album for $300!! Okay, so it's last season, but so...
Miniature Curiosities: Dollhouse MIniatures
This shop specialized in tiny things for a dollhouse. I am fascinated by miniatures, I don't know why! There was an amazing haunted house decorated inside and out for Halloween. I think it was $1,200!Instead, I bought a tiny ceramic bathtub, toilet and pedestal sink for a...
If you walk down by the...
If you walk down by the Delaware River, you will find numerous geese, ducks, swans etc. This goose decided to have a dance with my hubby. Who knows why-maybe it was a mating dance :-)
My husband really isn't this doofy, I don't know quite what was going on here.

Be sure to obey all parking regulations. I wrote the original tip back in August 2002. I failed to heed my own advise. I visited town during the Ice Festival in February 06 and returned to my car 10 minutes after the meter ran out with a parking ticket. I hate that!

They hold a Shad Festival each year on the last full weekend in April. It is crowded, driving through town is awlful and parking is worse. We have attended the festival many times and had the best times when we took the train in from Ringoes (no longer running)or used one of...

The town is a tourist trap-it is designed to suck tourists in and keep them there. But it doesn't prevent it from being a nice place to visit. I wouldn't recommend actually buying anything in the shops unless you're wealthy because you can get the same crap for much less in...
Moravian Tile and Pottery Works
The Moravian Pottery and Tile Works, a National Historic Landmark, is maintained as a "working history" museum by Pennsylvania's County of Bucks, Department of Parks and Recreation. Handmade tiles are still produced in a manner similar to that developed by the pottery's...
Not far from Lambertville...
Not far from Lambertville located on 394 Route 31 in West Amwell, NJ is Pine Creek Miniature Golf. It is my favorite miniature golf course, actually 2 courses. Beautiful landscaping and large course. Their website is www.pinecreekgolf.com
Favorite thing: If you are in NYC or NJ, Lambertville is a great day trip. There are so many interesting little shops selling all kinds of things, from antiques to pottery to handmade soaps. I was so thrilled in a kitchen shop when I found a great can opener (yeah, little things make me happy, like the bath fizzies I found in a soap store!!)
I love the the "village" feel of the town and the old stone buildings, which date to George Washington's time.
