Haddonfield

Like a miniature Philadelphia (which is less than 10 miles away), Haddonfield is filled with Revolutionary era history, Georgian architecture and picturesque, walkable streets.
 
Don't miss Main Street Haddonfield. This beautiful, tree-filled town is the perfect place to shop and eat. It’s filled with more than 200 stores, coffee shops and outdoor cafes, as well as arts and entertainment.
 
Kings Highway, Tanner Street and Lantern Lane are the town’s retail epicenter. Shopping highlights on Kings Highway include Happy Hippo for toys for the kid in everyone; Benjamin Lovell for envy-inducing shoes and Velvet Paws for everything from leashes to sweaters for pampered pets.
 
The Historical Society of Haddonfield is housed in the elegant, red brick Greenfield Hall (343 Kings Hwy.), which was built in 1841. Maps of all the town’s historical spots are available at the Information Center (2 Kings Ct.).
 
For music and dramatic productions it's the Haddonfield Plays & Players. History lovers will enjoy the Indian King Tavern Museum, a Revolutionary War meeting place for the New Jersey Legislature.

Insider Tip:
If you dig dinosaurs, you may already know that Haddonfield is where William Foulke discovered the world’s first full dinosaur skeleton in 1858.
 
Today, a bronze sculpture of Hadrosaurus foulkii is located on Lantern Lane, in the shopping district (the actual skeleton is at the New Jersey State Museum).
 
A stone sign marks the excavation site on a suburban street.
