Haddonfield, N.J., is a picturesque town—and now the whole state of New Jersey will be able to see that with their own eyes. 

New Jersey Monthly selected downtown Haddonfield as the area to grace its September cover for the “Our Favorite Downtowns” article. 

“We are thrilled that New Jersey Monthly selected downtown Haddonfield for the cover of its September issue,” says Haddonfield Mayor Jeff Kasko. “We have always recognized Haddonfield as a thriving and wonderful Downtown; now New Jersey Monthly readers will recognize it as well.” 

The article, a new feature, goes into detail on Haddonfield and 15 other downtowns in the Garden State. 

"New this year, the editorial staff at New Jersey Monthly chose their top 16 downtowns in New Jersey for our September issue,” says Ken Schlager, editor of New Jersey Monthly. “Downtown Haddonfield was an easy pick. We found no end to the downtown topics we wanted to cover, from sophisticated apparel boutiques, to art galleries, to the array of restaurants and well-preserved Colonial buildings.”

How are we doing? Pretty good. That was the bottom-line assessment that was shared with the nearly 600 tourism and professionals who attended Visit Seattle’s Annual Outlook Meeting at the Westin Seattle on March 31.

Some highlights from the 2021 study showed:

 

A big part of what imbues a destination with a sense of place and makes it memorable are its small locally owned businesses.  A new partnership between Visit Seattle and Seattle Bank is designed to support these businesses and bring tourism revenue to Seattle’s emerging neighborhoods. The inaugural grant program will invest in 20 local businesses, focusing on establishments owned by women, people of color and LGBTQ+ community members in the easily accessible Central District and Chinatown-International District neighborhoods.
