Explore charming downtown Clinton!  A unique blend of friendly small businesses, locally-owned shops, restaurants, and two museums, all surrounded by beautiful countryside. Clinton’s Historic Red Mill, nestled against the South Branch of the Raritan River, is the most photographed scene in New Jersey. The 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. 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.
