Designed for the enjoyment of serious cyclists and casual riders, the Monroe Township bikeway is a nearly 6 ¾-miles paved trail running between Williamstown and neighboring Glassboro. Open day and night and commonly used by cyclists and pedestrians of all ages, the bikeway is one of Williamstown's shining gems. The urban sections of the trail provide a great way to enjoy the towns, but the forested canopy stretch of the bikeway between the two towns is especially beautiful. Whether it is a casual ride with the kids or a solitary workout you are looking for, the Monroe bikeway is an exceptional outdoor recreation area.
The Grand Theatre on South Main Street is a cultural cornerstone of Williamstown, serving as a gathering place since 1924. In its early years, the Grand was a vaudeville theater, followed by decades as a movie house and ice cream parlor. Longtime residents hold fond memories of youthful outings to the Grand but, since the late 1980s, Williamstown's theater group, the Road Company, has called the theater home. Saturday night at the Grand is a continuing Williamstown tradition. Take in a show, view the work of tri-state area artists in the adjacent Galleria, or sign the kids up for an acting, dance, or art class.
Farmers Market and Vi
On Williamstown's northwest side, just off North Blackhorse Pike (State Road 44), you will find a cluster of shops that includes the Williamstown Farmers Market. The indoor market, open year round, houses specialty vendors of produce, meats, cheeses, traditional candies, and a variety of other farm fresh and homemade products. There are a couple of popular restaurants here, too, including a hoagie shop and a homestyle cooking eatery, and that is all before you ever enter the Village Shoppes, a complex of nearly 30 stores in which you will find a wide variety of arts, crafts, furniture, clothing, toys, and jewelry, among other treasures.
