Chester NJ, I Think I Love You!
Chester NJ Main Street
As I was driving into Chester NJ this morning I was enjoying the outrageously beautiful day…the sky is blue, the trees are swaying in the breeze and its a cooler..the window is open and there is fresh air streaming in…a perfect summer day!
It got me thinking about how lucky I am to work in Chester. It’s a lovely town and as I swing onto Main St. which is still sleepy (its 9 am) I realize again
what a great place it is. In a world where there is so much going on and so much strife its wonderful to have a place to go where I can forget about the news.

I am guessing that is how everyone that comes to Chester feels. Here they can stroll down pretty tree-lined Main St. and RELAX…CHILL…BREATHE. That’s right going to Chester is good for your well-being!!!! The buildings exude charm from a by gone time – its really one of the few Main Streets in the state that still have this ambience. You can stop into the shops – which are many – and buy yourself a memento or do some serious shopping and take home a sofa! If you are hungry there are numerous places to eat and drink. I am partial to lemonade so I love to run over to Maria’s and get one. I also love going to Bella Pizza because they make fantastic grilled chicken and of course I am always trying to eat healthy.
I know a lot of people who just enjoy the drive to Chester. I come up Rt 206 and it is a beautiful drive – no buildings necessarily just trees and fields. Nice. Gosh remember Sunday Drives???
Well I digress but I would love to hear from YOU about what you love about Chester…so drop me a line and tell me your favorite things about it…and don’t forget to like us on facebook
Hey Barb! Wow…what a great post. I agree. Chester is such a beautiful, peaceful, happy and tranquil town.
Hey Ros, It was great to meet you yesterday and such a coincidence since Pat and I were just talking about THE WHISTLING SWAN !!! I have so many great memories of Chester and I love your memory! Mothers are special!
My favorite thing about Chester is the fall season. The beautiful changing leaves, clear blue skies and Halloween on Main Street is such a great time for the community. Especially apple picking, pumpkin picking, and the corn mazes! I have so many great memories here.
My favorite memory of Chester is strolling up Main Street with my mom. We would browse the shops, then stop for a cup of coffee and something sweet. It gave us an opportunity to talk about everything and nothing. This was real quality mother/daughter time. I miss it.
