This time we are off to Middlesex County. In a recent article by Only In Your State, they chose this town as a great "small town" for a day trip and it's not that far from here at the Jersey Shore.

Only In Your State selected Metuchen as one of the best "small towns" in New Jersey and perfect for a day trip. "A charming main street containing restaurants and stores is only minutes away from a larger area containing a shopping plaza, an old-school diner, one of the state’s best libraries, a fascinating historical site – and even a hidden natural haven. All this combines to make a day trip to Metuchen’s downtown an absolute must-do experience for any explorer of the Garden State."

This looks like a day trip I'm putting on the "to-do" list. Looks like a nice small town to stroll about and shop, get those steps in and maybe do lunch. Speaking of lunch, they say the Metuchen Diner is "one of the state's best old-school diners, and is only minutes away from the main street."
