I have lived in both Freehold Borough and Freehold Township, and I love them both. But I've always had a special place in my heart for downtown Freehold.

To me, there is something really magical about the area. From the elegance of the Hall of Records to the unmistakable throwback look to the whole downtown area, it all warms my heart.

And for me, it doesn't even matter what time of the season it is to enjoy this amazing area. Whether you're taking a Christmas stroll downtown, or catching a car show or a concert on a warm summer night, the magic is always there.

I mean, I even have a spot in my heart for the Market Yard parking lot. Now, you really have to love a town to get sentimental about its parking lot.

I know that no town is perfect, but I hope we can take a moment to really appreciate some of the great places we have here in our little corner of the world, and I believe Freehold is one of them.

I specifically focused on the Main St area in the downtown section for my tribute this time around, and of course, I know there is so much more to Freehold than just that, but I can't help but feel romantic about that downtown section. I just love it.

I hope you love it as much as I do, and if you love it too, I hope these photos inspire you to make a visit to Freehold and support some of the great local businesses there.
