The Fascinating Town In New Jersey That Is Straight Out Of A Fairy Tale

If you grew up in the Garden State, you may be familiar with the Fairy Tale Forest. Located in Oak Ridge, it brought fairy tales to life for generations of children. Closed over a decade ago, restoration efforts have been underway for some time. If you’ve lived in the southern side of the state, you may be more familiar with Storybook Land, an equally enchanting (and still open) theme park. While both are wonderful destinations, they focus on fantasy. If you’re looking for a real-life fairy tale, head no further than Clinton.

I remember the first time I visited Clinton. I walked down Main Street and approached the river in awe – it was just as wonderful as I’d imagined. I picked up a few gifts at the local Hallmark, stopped for some sweets at the Clinton Fudge Company, and relaxed by the waterfront. If you’re looking for a day trip destination, I’d highly recommend it, especially in the spring or fall. For more fairy tale worth spots in New Jersey, check out this list.
