After getting the perfect Christmas tree from Wyckoff’s, we suggest visiting Little Ridge Vineyards, a beautiful family farm and vineyard offering wine tasting, wine by the glass or bottle, and bottles to go. Little Ridge Vineyards offers live music and plenty of indoor and outdoor space to enjoy your picnic and sample their wines. Little Ridge Vineyards allows you to bring your food; however, OUTSIDE ALCOHOL IS PROHIBITED BY LAW. Just 6 short minutes from Wyckoff’s Christmas Tree Farm.
When you are out in Warren County with your family cutting a Christmas tree, make it a day and explore some of the nearby places. New Jersey wines always make for a great holiday gift. We have several nearby wineries including a local favorite, Little Ridge Vineyards. We are so impressed with their wine that we offer it for sale in our Christmas Barn. There are numerous antique shops in historic Hope, as well as in nearby towns like Harmony and Stewartsville.
Of course you will be stopping for a bite to eat. One place to consider is the famous Hot Dog Johnny’s on Route 46 heading East. You may also enjoy the Red Wolfe Inn just south on Route 519 from the Christmas Tree Farm. Other nearby options are the Tipton’s Tavern, Uniontown Bar and Grill, and Luigi’s Rancho, all on Route 46.
If you want to explore the outdoors while in the area there are a few nearby parks, including Jenny Jump State Forest in Hope, where you will see interesting rock formations, including some of the oldest rocks in New Jersey. And while you will no doubt enjoy the view of the Delaware Water Gap from the top of our hill, you can also take a short half hour drive to explore the Gap.
Take an amazing ride on Old Mine Road, one of the first in the nation, built in 1659 by Dutch settlers to bring copper ore from the Pahaquarry Mines to Esopus (now Kingston, NY) on the Hudson River. The portion that runs along the Delaware River in New Jersey is largely undeveloped and one of the most scenic and rustic roads you can find – perfect for a leisurely drive.
