For a short mid-week trip to inspire and recharge, it’s hard to find a better town to walk than Lambertville, NJ – some 1.5 hours West of NYC. I like it’s quaint narrow streets and historic architecture as well as the stunning views of the Delaware River. To boot, are a few excellent antique shops and fantastic lunch spots.
