Lambertville, NJ is hardly in the travel news these days and if it were, the story would likely focus on the neighboring town of New Hope known for its arts and antiques. A careful observer though will find plenty to peruse in Lambertville: in fact, it’s a charming delight to anyone sentimental about typography, murals and street details — and a wonderful place to wander and explore.
