Arm & Hammer Park

This charming stadium is the home of the AA baseball team Trenton Thunder.

Reviewed By bluejeanfood - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

On a beautiful Sunday, September 3rd the Trenton Thunder AA affiliate of the New York Yankees hosted the Reading Fightin Phils AA affilate of the Philadelphia Phillies for a doubleheader. My beloved Phils won both games, and while there I enjoyed the Swine Sandwich from the Case’s Pork Roll station. The sandwich was of course Case’s pork roll topped with pulled pork, bacon, and American cheese on a Kaiser roll. It was delicious and the stadium is a great place to watch baseball. Highly recommend a visit and this sandwich. Congrats to the Trenton Thunder on an amazing season

Not sure how I never heard of this place but I've been twice now and looking forward to going back. Amazing grounds and gardens and interesting sculpture everywhere you turn. Both times we started by going to Ratt's Restaurant and then actually driving around to the visitors center. I've been in summer and spring and now looking forward to a fall visit. This would be difficult for someone with limited mobility or anyone in a wheelchair due to spots with uneven terrain so call ahead to reserve a guide / golf cart tour. For everyone else -- as large as the grounds are - you're walking at your speed with plenty of places to take breaks - including a few snack locations throughout the park. We've never had alot of luck following the maps but you really don't need them - and all the sculptures are well labeled.

River Horse Brewing Company

Local brewery handcrafting unique beers and offering weekend tours with tastings, plus company swag.

Reviewed By P F B - Edison, New Jersey

Small sampling area. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Good tasting brews. They offer a 45 minute to tour of the brewery or you can take a virtual tour. Pints or samplers are available. You can bring food and there’s also a food truck that stops by. Some of the brews are available to take out as sixes and also growlers are available. I did find the prices of the sixes a little high.

Mercer County Park

Reviewed By raninawaz - Hamilton, New Jersey

I have visited the park many a time, be it for a morning walk, or to cheer contestants or to watch a concert or just to watch the deers. It is a beautul park with playgrounds, icerinks, tennis courts, softball and football courts, paddling etc. They even have a cricket pitch. Love to watch the joggers, bicyclers and how could I forget the pet park.

Old Barracks Museum

In 1758, the Old Barracks was constructed to house British troops during the French and Indian War. During the Revolutionary War, the barracks was one of Washington's military hospitals. Today, the building is home to an interpretive museum, galleries, gift shop, and meeting space. Guided tours start on the hour from 10 AM - 4 PM.

Every summer we try to see and explore something historic and the last several years we have focused more on World War II since we are in Europe so it was nice to learn something more about US history. Tours are done I believe every hour so if you get there in between times you can stroll around a little outside or watch a video that is about 20 or so minutes and look at a few items they have in the same room as the video. The tour was ok. The gentleman seemed knowledgable about what he was explaining to our group but he didn't seem to be in a good mood. This made it a little awkward but everyone is entitled to a "down day". It was interesting to learn of the history and other factors to the barracks and how it impacted the outcome of War for Independence. After the tour there is another area that you can visit another area with more items to see. It is worth visiting if in or near the Trenton area. Location is easy to find. We were not sure about parking near the museum since it said something about have your id ready so we decided to park in the city parking garage that is not too far away. Just a few minutes to walk. There ae a few other things to see in the area as well if you have time. This museum is not stroller or wheel chair friendly from what I saw. Thank you for being a Blue Star Museum! Our group had a mix of teens and elementary age kids and everyone took something away from what we learned about at this museum.

Hamilton Veterans Park

Public park in Hamilton Township, NJ that has recreational areas and hosts several events like Septemberfest, Fourth of July fireworks, Camp Olden

Reviewed By Jacoba S - New York City, New York

This is a well-maintained park with lots of areas to climb and play. My kids, nieces and nephews ranging from two to thirteen enjoyed it. That said, you must keep a close eye since it is not fenced off from the parking lot. There are bathrooms in the park for public use.

Colonial Bowling and Entertainment

Reviewed By angelampowell - angelampowell

This is a fun place to come with your friends, family, kids or alone to bowl, laser tag and games. Just fun! But if you expect to slide over to the bar area to eat or enjoy a cold one .... expect horrible service! !!! Awful! You have 1 person serving an entire dining area and full bar. We ordered pizza. No. Plates. No silverware. No condiments and it all came with an attitude. .. then he's trying to serve those that's bowling. This place make way to much money to not have a bartender. A waitress and more

Actors' Net of Bucks County

Reviewed By 40n75w - Bucks County, Pennsylvania

For many years, we would go into Philadelphia for live theater. This usually required us to drive to center city, find parking, grab a quick meal in town, and then watch a show that often was disappointing. The whole operation was very expensive... $30-$60 a ticket, $20 for parking, and $40 for dinner.

And then with discovered ActorsNET! It is 20 minutes from home, has free parking, and we can easily get there after dinner, and adult tickets are only $18. Best of all, the shows are always top-notch. The choice of plays, the sets, the staging the costumes, and the acting are professional quality. The theater wins awards every year and receives terrific reviews by local theater critics.

If you are anywhere within an hour's radius of Morrisville, PA, take advantage of the wonderful resource.

Trenton Farmers Market

Reviewed By didi9999 - Trenton, New Jersey

Last several times I visited this long standing business, I went home empty or with very few things. Increasingly the prices have not been as competitive as years ago and the quality of the flowers, fruits and vegetables have not been enticing. There are other shops. Again, I have not found much to purchase. Open mostly toward weekends much of the year.
