The One Small Town In New Jersey That Transforms Into A Terrifying Halloween Wonderland

Clinton is a charming little town on the Raritan River with a lovely shopping area, scenic views, a historic village, wonderful restaurants and an art museum. It’s a fantastic place to visit but, once a year, it becomes a nightmare.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

The Red Mill is located at 56 Main Street in Clinton. This year’s fun begins on Friday, October 13th. After making it out of the Red Mill Museum alive, you’ll be taken on a hayride deep into the woods. While the event can be a bit too spooky for little ones, there are kid-friendly “happy haunts.” Lights are left on and kids can enjoy additional attractions like face painting. This year’s theme is “infection,” a zombie-filled adventure sure to chill you to the core. For more spooky fun in New Jersey, check out this haunted hike.
