Welcome to New Jersey’s Delaware River Region, where strolling main streets of days gone by and hiking winding trails in secluded forests make you feel like you’re in another time.
With more than 150 miles of shoreline along Delaware Bay and the Delaware River, the Delaware River Region is a boater’s delight. Rent a canoe or kayak from any number of vendors or visit Delaware River Tubing for a lazy float down the river. For an overnight experience, pitch a tent under the stars in Parvin State Park in Pittsgrove. More into glamping? The park has 18 furnished cabins complete with running water and electricity.
Add some culture to your visit with stops at Camden’s USS New Jersey, the most decorated battleship in U.S. Navy history and Princeton’s War Memorial. Other attractions in the Delaware River Region include Camden Children’s Garden, where kids can ride the garden carousel or climb the treehouse and Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, home to 270 outdoor sculptures.
Award-winning wineries can be found throughout the region, including Coda Rossa Winery in Franklinville, which produces an Ameritage (it's an award-winner) and an assortment of other wines. Beer drinkers also have options here, with breweries like Berlin Brewing Company offering microbrews made in-house.
Major annual events in this area include the Fire & Ice Festival, held in late January in Mount Holly and the Cranberry Festival, held in early October in Bordentown.
