USA Today 10Best provides users with original, unbiased, and experiential travel information about top attractions, sights, things to see and do, and restaurants in the U.S. and around the world. The site was created by a team of travel experts – a well-traveled and well-educated group who are not only experts in their fields, and their cities, but discriminating in their tastes. These local experts live in the cities they write about, so the content is constantly updated.
“We are overjoyed to be recognized by the readers of USA Today for not one, not two, but three years in a row,” said Haddonfield Mayor Neal Rochford. “We in Haddonfield pride ourselves in our one-of-a-kind Downtown experience with beautiful tree-lined streets and well-preserved historic buildings that now are home to over 200 businesses. We hope that this continued recognition will encourage those who haven’t experienced our historic town, to come and visit for the day when in the Delaware Valley area,” he continued.
The downtown’s 200 shops, inviting food/beverage establishments, sculptures, historic sites, and dramatic streetscapes make it one of the most fabulous places to spend the day. Settled into well-preserved Colonial buildings and located along the picturesque, tree-lined main and side streets, Haddonfield’s independently owned businesses offer beautifully displayed merchandise with friendly customer service. Visitors may also enjoy delicious creations at one of Downtown Haddonfield’s many food/beverage establishments, many of which offer outdoor dining.
Haddonfield is also rich in early American history. Visitors are encouraged to explore history starting at The Indian King Tavern Museum. The museum is located where the NJ General Assembly ratified the Declaration of Independence in 1777. Today the Tavern Museum is recognized as a Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
For the art lover, Haddonfield offers public outdoor art exhibitions that populate Downtown locations with contemporary outdoor sculptures and statues. One of these must-see statues is Haddy, the eight-foot-high statue of a Hadrosaurus Foulkii dinosaur, located in the center of the shopping district. The statue commemorates the 1858 discovery of the world’s first complete dinosaur skeleton near the very spot where it was found.
