There are several reasons why Haddonfield has been chosen by Philadelphia Magazine as one of the best places to live in the Delaware Valley. New Jersey Monthly magazine ranked it as the 100th best place to live in New Jersey in its 2008 rankings of the "Best Places To Live" in New Jersey. Haddonfield's schools, attractive, historic houses, quiet neighborhoods along tree-shaded streets and elegant gardens are all attractions, yet it is the All-American downtown at the heart of this beautiful borough that sets it apart. It has meticulously preserved its original charm and colonial flavor, harmonizing contemporary homes with beautifully restored properties. Haddonfield offers more than 200 quaint shops, galleries and restaurants. It is just a ten minute ride from both the Ben Franklin and Walt Whitman bridges, accessible by Patco Speedline and New Jersey Transit, and an easy drive from Delaware, Pennsylvania and New York. Haddonfield is a charming town, lovingly preserved, with a strong history dating back to 1682.
