Hammonton is located on the Western border of Atlantic County about 30 minutes from Atlantic City and 30 minutes from Philadelphia. Hammonton is also known as the Blueberry Capital Of The World! What you may not know is that Hammonton has a thriving downtown.
The downtown area centers on Bellevue Avenue and branches off from there. The downtown includes art galleries, restaurants, wine and sports bars, banks, clothing stores, offices, a theatre, a park, and a college satellite campus, attracting shoppers from South Jersey.
The main reason I go to Hammonton is for the Mexican food. Hammonton has about a half dozen Mexican restaurants. My favorite is El Mariachi Loco. It’s located at the corner of Bellevue Ave and the railroad in a beautiful historic building. The food is made fresh and the service is excellent. They also have live music on the weekends.
Check out downtown Hammonton. Enjoy the local eateries and shops and let me know what you think. Is this the best downtown in Atlantic County?
