Repost from April, 2007
I've never really ventured into Philly-suburb country, but after reading about Haddonfield in New Jersey Monthly as a "Best Downtown", it sparked my interest from a blogging point-of-view as well as personal curiosity. Luckily, my husband grew up both in Cherry Hill and Moorestown and was very familiar with the area. I'm not a fan of reading long paragraphs on blogs, so I will keep my details to bullet points. I found some great shops, 1 fabulous restaurant, and 1 cozy cafe: *Disclaimer: I realized after we left that I forgot my camera, so you'll just have to imagine the places that don't have images online*
