One of the many New Jersey towns that played a role in the Revolutionary War is Cranbury.

In fact, one of the houses here was the headquarters for the army by Alexander Hamilton and the Marquis de Lafayette. The village is actually a National Historic District.

It's a beautiful little town tucked away not too far off some pretty main arteries in New Jersey, but it seems miles away and almost frozen in time. A little off the beaten path, but not too far away and just a great spot for a simple afternoon getaway.

It's also home to some farms that produce the bulk of the country's spinach that we enjoy this time of year. A nice little oasis tucked away in the middle of some of Central Jersey's best farmland.

You should check out Cranbury, New Jersey!
