"New Jersey's Oldest Community - Right out of a Storybook!"

Haddonfield is nestled right smack in between the two major commercial communities of Cherry Hill and Voorhees/Berlin. As you drive down Kings Highway (the main street) you'll think you've been magically transported back in time to the colonial or Victorian era. If you're lucky enough to visit at Christmas, it feels like a fairy tale with the decorations and lights lining the street. The people in Haddonfield love living in Haddonfield - and they won't hesitate to tell you. The PATCO Speedline (from Philly to AC) runs right through town so if you're a fan of getting into to Old City for even more great dining, shopping, nightlife, and historical tourism, then living in Haddonfield makes that even easier. The schools are also some of the best in the area and they just won a football championship! Like all quaker towns in the area, Haddonfield is dry so all the fancy and fun restaurants are BYO but if you're looking for something to bring, there are liquor stores available at ever major intersection just outside the town (proper). If you want quaint but you want to remain close to major shopping/dining and more, Haddonfield is one of the premiere communities in Camden County and all of South Jersey.
