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.

Roebling Museum

Reviewed By podrozniczka60 - New Jersey

Like Batsto,NJ and even more so Smithville Park,NJ - Roebling can be added to a "must see" list for New Jersey history lovers.
1.2-square-mile town was created in the very beginning of 20th century completely from scratch by the company of a well known industrialist and architect John A. Roebling who emigrated to the United States in 1831 from Prussia. He and later also his sons constructed numerous bridges including Brooklyn Bridge, Niagara Falls, Washington Bridge and Golden Gate. Those were wire rope suspension bridges with Roebling-made wire cables. The museum exhibits explain the technology and design.
The plant no longer exists but the town still does.
Roebling Museum features informational movie and interesting exhibits showing the life of Roebling Family, the history of the plant, the engineering achievements of Roeblings. The tickets are $6 for adults. After visiting the museum one should go on a walking tour of Roebling. There are maps by the entrance door of the museum. I understand that sometimes the guided walking tours are offered but not on the August Saturday when our visit took place.
If you cannot walk through this interesting town it is even easier to drive following the map.

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.

Very nostalgic and rustic. Pleasantly surprised at the quality and quantity of their stock. I surprised my date since he is a DJ and is very much into VINYL...he was truly like a child-in-a-candy-store. there are hundreds and hundreds more vinyl which aren't visible in the front of the shop. Definitely for folks of ALL ages
On Friday and Saturday evenings bands perform. I will be visiting Bordentown's Record Collector for one of these performances

I enjoy going to this on the weekends. Free parking. Lots of tables outside and fun stores inside. The most disappointing this is the Amish section is closed every Sunday. Has the best food and furniture. If you plan on shopping in the Amish section make sure you go on Saturday. Best doughnuts you'll ever have.

Sea Girt Beach and Boardwalk

Reviewed By Jeffrey M

The Sea Girt boardwalk has been rebuilt since Superstorm Sandy and is great for strolling and bicycling. Many of the beachfront homes are still being rebuilt. The beach itself has been replenished and dunes have been installed. Be sure to observe the flags by the lifeguard stands and bathe at the protected beaches. Beach tags are required during the summer season.

Friends of White Hill Mansion

Reviewed By TeamCooke

My husband, pre-teen son and I recently attended a fundraiser and ghost hunt at the historic and very old (1723) White Hill Mansion. None of us had ever heard of the place before but I saw a posting for the event and thought why not?!
There was a group of 20 people split into 2 very manageable groups to tour the house with a historian from the Friends of White Hill Mansion along with members of a local ghost hunting group. They even provided flashlights and cool ghost hunting equipment.
The Friends of White Hill Mansion really love this 18th century home and did a fantastic job of filling us in on how it was home to a Revolutionary War Patriot who was found drowned in Neshaminy Creek under mysterious circumstances, a mafia-backed, Prohibition era restaurant, speak-easy and brothel as well as the home/workshop of the man who invented the typefaces we all know and love (including Times New Roman and Helvectiva).
It needs a lot of work, hence the fundraiser (reasonably priced at $30 per person) but that added to the creepiness of the evening. We had a great time and plan to return in the Fall for a festival-type event to be held in the grounds and in the house.

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.

Reviewed By Cappiea23 - Spangdahlem, Germany

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.
