Terhune Orchards

330 Cold Soil Road

Princeton, NJ

Terhune Orchards truck- open all year sign

You can find great family events at Terhune all year-round, including their Sunday Music Series this winter. Each week local musicians come to Terhune for a relaxing (and free!) afternoon of wine, light fare and of course some great music. They also have read & explore programs happening each month for kids to enjoy.


Lindt Chocolate Shop

68 Palmer Square West

Princeton, NJ

Lindt Chocolate store front

Is the cold starting to get at you? We have the answer: Lindt Hot Chocolate. And you can only get it at a Lindt Chocolate Shop, which we fortunately have in Mercer. Stop by and grab some free samples too. It’s true heaven for anyone with a slight appreciation for chocolate.


Winter Hike at Baldpate Mountain

28 Fiddlers Creek Road

Titusville, NJ 08560


Baldplate summit covered with snow

Some of the best hiking can be done in the winter. Why? The trails are less crowded and the wilderness often displays its most pristine beauty. If you dress properly, it can be a great way to fit in exercise and grab some fresh air.

We enjoy the view at Baldpate, but you can find other great hiking spots here.
