There's always so much to do in Lambertville throughout the year - you'll want to visit again and again. Lambertville has long been known for its antiques, art galleries and unique shops. We've got two fantastic flea markets for bargain hunters - Rice's is just 10 minutes from Lambertville and The Golden Nugget Antique and Flea Market is 1 mile south of town. The Delaware and Raritan Canal Park towpath offers miles of specially surfaced scenic riverside trail, ideal for walking and biking, not to mention cross country skiing when the snow flies. Cool off in the summer with a boat ride or go tubing down the river. Lambertville’s rich past, museums and architecture have made it a beacon for history aficionados. After a day of exploring or shopping, you can enjoy dinner at one of our fabulous Zagat's rated restaurants and cap off the evening with a play, concert or perhaps the ballet. Stay the night in a hotel, historic inn or B&B. There are so many options you'll find the one that's perfect for you. Lambertville is just a little over an hour from New York City and forty minutes from Philadelphia. Ideal for a day trip or a vacation. There are special events happening throughout the year - Winter Festival, springtime Shad Fest, summertime Friday Night Fireworks and the Autumn House Tour to name a few.
