Popular October Events and Happenings
October with many fall festivities is usually the last month of the year when you can still enjoy many outdoor events. The leaves turn color, the weather is pleasant, and many people who enjoy the outdoors and have spent their summer weekends and vacations at the shore, begin to look towards northern and western New Jersey for fall trips to take in the beautiful fall colors.
Hunterdon County is a a great area to enjoy a fall trip! It's a scenic destination with rolling farmlands, historic sites, and charming towns such as Clinton, Frenchtown, Lambertville, and Sergeantsville.
Clinton nestled in the hills, is a classic American small town that has attracted photographers, movie makers, and visitors here for its scenic and historic beauty. It’s a charming historic village with shops and cherry tree lined streets, a river with a 200 foot wide waterfall winding through it, and lined with old grist mills.
Frenchtown is an undiscovered secret that is attracting visitors with its many three story multi-colored Victorian homes, art galleries, antique shops, clothing boutiques, and restaurants, all surrounded by rural scenic rolling hills, a river and historic sites.
Lambertville is Hunterdon County’s only city and is popular with visitors attracted to its quaint town with tree lined streets, Victorian homes, antique shops, clothing boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants. Its five block downtown area along the Delaware River attracts window shoppers and browsers.
Sergeantsville is a small village that resembles Pennsylvania’s Amish Country with its rolling hills, open farmland, and the State’s last pre-20th century covered bridge, and an old fashioned general store.
