Josey Miller in the Washington Post: A Taste of Paris in… New Jersey?

Oui, New Jersey!

All through the springtime, I’d been humming “I Love Paris,” pondering a trip across the Atlantic. But, with its boutiques, bakeries, sidewalk cafes, water views and a dramatic steel bridge, Frenchtown, New Jersey has helped keep my wanderlust at bay — at least until I’ve filled up my froggy bank…

Want to read my new article about Frenchtown, New Jersey? Pick up a copy of today’s Washington Post newspaper and flip to the travel section—or click here now.

I was also the photographer on this piece, and here are a few shots they didn’t choose:

  1. Je suis contente de regarder ton article dans Le Washington Post! Comme je reviens Paris quand je le lis. C’est excellent! Felicitations! Tu es remarquable!


  2. Merci, Marianne!

  3. Hi Josey!
    So happy you enjoyed our little town, (Frenchtown, NJ). I’ve been living here 10+ years and it’s like no other town I’ve ever heard of. It’s hard to describe exactly though!
