When it comes to New Jersey, Love Exploring selected a town in Hunterdon County that's located along the Delaware River. The small town of Frenchtown was selected as a great place to visit. "Gloriously quaint, the main area of this small town has a distinctly European feel about it, with streets lined with little cafés. The town celebrates its French heritage with a big Bastille Day bash in summer and the outdoors is a pull all year-round. The town spreads out along the Delaware River and it's a popular place for cycling too."
