What Makes Clinton Special

Clinton’s Historic Red Mill, nestled against the South Branch of the Raritan River, is the most photographed scene in New Jersey. Our charming downtown is often described as straight out of a Norman Rockwell painting. Enduring Mom and Pop boutiques offer unique, eclectic gifts and apparel, and excellent restaurants aren’t to be missed, including farm to table waterfront dining and New Jersey’s finest cheese and imported olive oil.

Families are attracted to the town by the many downtown activities that pepper the calendar, be it the Great Rubber Ducky Race over the falls in front of the Red Mill or Dickens Days when the downtown is dressed like A Christmas Carol, and horse drawn carriage rides, carolers and Father Christmas entertain shoppers. The Red Mill Museum Village gives visitors a peek into history, while the Hunterdon Art Museum directly across the South Branch of the Raritan River presents changing exhibitions of contemporary art. In addition, there are plenty of options for outdoor enthusiasts, including hiking the Landsdown Trail, kayaking the South Branch of the Raritan River, Fishing at Spruce Run Reservoir, and more.
