Frenchtown, New Jersey: worth a visit in the fall

Frenchtown, New Jersey has a quaint downtown area parallel to the Delaware river. This hidden gem is particularly charming in the autumn.

The leaves are changing all the shops open for visitors. Many of the shops cater to older and younger crowds alike. There are antique and homewares shops aside used book shops and shops selling trendy threads.

Cafes and restaurants are amazing. Early Bird Expresso offers drip coffee, lattes, hot chocolate, tea, and specialty drinks. This café definitely catered to the millennial taste.

Later, we ate at the Bridge Café. I had Croque Monsieur with a fried egg on top and a side of sweet potato fries. It had to be one of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten. The café is only open for lunch so make sure to secure a table with a view of the river.

Even if you are not one to shop, many can wander the main street and snap pictures of all the unique buildings. Take a stroll across the bridge into Pennsylvania and walk next to the Delaware River.

I took a visit right before Halloween. To my surprise, an old house that was on sale had a Michael Myers mask in the window.

Can you spot the Michael Myers head in the top window?

Everywhere we turned, there was a new surprise in Frenchtown, New Jersey.
