Welcome to Historic Smithville – a village that takes you back in time! What started as a simple, one-room stagecoach stop has blossomed over the last 50 years into a beloved destination for making memories. As you enter any of our 50 shoppes, you’ll feel the warm embrace of small-town hospitality and the charm of local businesses. Stroll along cobblestone walkways and over foot bridges, and discover a village that seems frozen in time.

Our carefully manicured grounds and attention to detail create a unique and refreshing atmosphere that will make you want to visit again and again. Whether you’re looking for a family day trip, a romantic getaway, or a girls’ weekend, Historic Smithville has something for everyone.

Located just minutes from Atlantic City, Historic Smithville is a South Jersey gem waiting to be discovered. Come explore our village, indulge in our delicious food, and experience the magic of a bygone era.

Historic Smithville Inn is the restaurant where the simple dream of Smithville began. The Historic Smithville Inn is now an award winning restaurant with over 80 weddings each year. If you’re looking for a casual meal, we have 3 other restaurants within the village for you to choose from. Really want to enjoy the village in style? Stay the night at the Colonial Inn Bed and Breakfast with over 32 rooms to choose from; which we guarantee will exceed your expectations.

The Carousel, Train and Paddle Boats are a fun distraction from all the shopping and eating.  Not to mention, the view of the village while floating on our Lake Meone is breathtaking. We pride ourselves on having something for everyone, so, stop by and see what you think! Historic Smithville is host to over 50 free weekend events. From Oktoberfest to Car Shows to Children Festivals we have an event to interest everyone in the family. Please note the train and Carousel are close in Jan. Feb. and March and the official reopen date is Easter weekend. On weekends that temperature goes above 50 these amusements will open. You can always call to confirm at 609-748-8999.
