Driving Tour

Washington Crossing State Park

355 Washington Crossing Pennington Rd, Titusville, NJ 08560

The 2023 DMA Fall Foliage Tour will begin at Washington Crossing State Park in Titusville, NJ. Washington's Crossing State Park is the site of General George Washington's historic 1776 Christmas night crossing of the icy Delaware River. The park gates open at 8:00 AM and the visitor's center opens at 9:00 AM if you would like to arrive early and explore on your own. Please arrive by 10:00 AM at the very latest. Entry cost is free for 2023.

We'll also be providing snack bags for the road trip. We will depart Washington Crossing State Park by 10:30 AM sharp. We will then make our way North for the 1.5 hour drive along the Delaware River through the historic towns of Lambertville, Stockton and Frenchtown where we will make a brief pit stop for lunch.

Please be sure to start the drive with a full tank of gas. There is a Delta on the corner of Route 29 and Washington Crossing, Pennington Road (the road which the entrance to the park is on).

It is recommended to bring along a two way radio in case anyone gets stuck at a traffic light, breaks down, has an emergency, etc. so we can pull over as a group. Please note that New Jersey prohibits the use of handheld devices so be mindful of this whenever using your two-way radio.


11:30 AM - 12:45 PM


Members will be responsible for payment of lunch on their own. Below are several suggestions in Frenchtown all within close proximity to each other and walking distance:
