You’ll Be Delighted When You Visit Mount Holly, One Of New Jersey’s Southern Gems
If you follow Only In New Jersey, you may already know that I recently began writing a spotlight series. I’ll be covering a wide variety of delightful Garden State towns, all requested or recommended by readers. We’ve got so many cities and towns to love, all of which make wonderful day trip destinations. Each locale featured will be a prime destination for foodies, with fun activities to enjoy in addition to a good meal. Our series started with Madison, New Jersey and is continuing with Mount Holly.
First, a few fun facts. Mount Holly is the seat of Burlington County. It was first settled by Europeans in 1677 and now has a population of about 10,000 residents. The Battle of Iron Works Hill was fought here in 1776 and that battle is reenacted each December. Check it out, and visit one (or more) of the five fantastic restaurants below.
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/
Other spots worth checking out include the Village Idiot Brewing Company, Spellbound Brewing, and Iron Works Park.
