City of Trenton
319 E. State Street Trenton, NJ 08608
Trenton, New Jersey's Capital City, is a historic city proud of its past with a bright future. Trenton is easily accessible to New York and Philadelphia and is located in Central New Jersey on the Delaware River in Mercer County.
When Washington crossed the Delaware, he was headed to Trenton. Visit the site of the turning point of the American Revolution when George Washington's troops defeated England's army in a surprising rout: you can visit this history at the Old Barracks Museum, The Trent House, the Battle Monument, the State Museum, and the Trentoniana Room at the Trenton Public Library. Trenton’s celebration of history culminates in Patriots’ Week, an annual week-long celebration of the Battles of Trenton and all things revolutionary.
Trenton was chosen one of the ten best cities for foodies in 2015. No surprise, given the diversity of their restaurant scene—from a wide variety of downtown eateries to the new Chambersburg which features the food of many Latin American countries. Add to that Trenton’s passion for Pork Roll that culminates in the summertime’s Pork Roll Festival and you can see why InfoGroup called dining in Trenton “local, novel and niche.” Check out reviews on the Trenton restaurant scene at www.hiddentrenton.com.
Trenton’s art scene is exploding. From Art All Night, ArtWorks’ 24-hour community art show, to Jersey Fresh Graffiti jam to Passage Theatre’s award-winning productions to the Trenton Film Festival, you can understand why SAGE Coalition’s Will Kasso calls this “the golden age” for art in Trenton.
While you are in Trenton, make sure to catch a Trenton Thunder Minor League Baseball game or a show at the Sun Center. The City of Trenton has many activities and sites to see. Learn more about Trenton events and how to make your trip a memorable one!
