When big-city convenience is important, but you don’t want any of the bustle that goes along with living in a crowded metropolis, look no further than Cherry Hill. This Philadelphia suburb is less than 10 miles away from the City of Brotherly Love - just across the Delaware River and an easy commute in on the train or bus - and less than two hours from the Big Apple. But just because it’s so close to two major cities doesn’t mean Cherry Hill doesn’t have a lot going on in its own right. Just outside Cherry Hill apartments and homes is South New Jersey’s commercial hub, full of dining options, retailers and centuries’ worth of history to take in.
Residents and visitors alike can get a sense of what life in Cherry Hill was like when the area was vast farmland at the Barclay Farmstead, a Federal-style farmhouse that has been restored to its early 19th century roots, complete with costumed employees and on-site nature trails. For the younger crowd - and the young at heart - check out the Garden State Discovery Museum, a hands-on museum with workshops, a children’s theater, live animals and more than 20 exhibits unlike anything else in the state. And if world-class shopping is more your speed, Cherry Hill is home to one of the first enclosed malls along the East Coast, only minutes from Cherry Hill apartments and the city’s primary town center.
The convenience of Cherry Hill and its surrounding area is unmatched, thanks in part to local transportation that makes getting around town and into nearby metro areas a snap. I-295 and the New Jersey Turnpike run down the city’s center, and I-95 and I-76 are just outside Cherry Hill’s limits. For commuters headed into Philadelphia for work or entertainment, a the Port Authority Transit Corporation (PATCO) train line runs from Cherry Hill apartments straight into the heart of Philly, and the city’s Amtrak station and neighborhood bus stops make it easy to get to work or leave your car at home to run errands.
For local entertainment and dining, Cherry Hill is the perfect go-to city to meet family and friends to celebrate life’s special occasions without going too far from most Cherry Hill apartments. Dine on Italian cuisine at Caffe Aldo Lamberti and ask about the restaurant’s private wine cellars; go back in time at the Silver Diner, a retro American dining experience; and eat the most delicious steak in town at Steak 38, complete with a raw bar and handcrafted martinis. And for the most special of occasions, head over to The Wine Room and create your own vino and bottle label at one of the local winemaking sessions - a treat unlike any you’ll find in Cherry Hill, Philadelphia and beyond.
