This Walkable Stretch Of Shops And Restaurants In Small-Town New Jersey Is The Perfect Day Trip Destination

When it comes to New Jersey towns, Metuchen really has it all. The central Jersey borough is on both a train line and a bus line, and is in the center of Middlesex County’s bustling retail hubs. The borders in this area of New Jersey can be winding, and Metuchen expands all around the area, but at its heart is what might be the most walkable downtown in New Jersey. A charming main street containing restaurants and stores is only minutes away from a larger area containing a shopping plaza, an old-school diner, one of the state’s best libraries, a fascinating historical site – and even a hidden natural haven. All this combines to make a day trip to Metuchen’s downtown an absolute must-do experience for any explorer of the Garden State.
