This temple is meant for everyone and is worth a tour through its inner sanctum. I’ve been there twice with friends and relatives and visitors. Everyone marvels at the beauty and detail of workmanship.

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.

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.

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

Mercer Oaks Golf Course

A public golf course, with green fees of only $30.

Reviewed By asf107 - Princeton Junction, New Jersey, United States

I would not recommend this golf course. While the course itself is pretty nice, the staff is not. I went on a Saturday in July with a foursome that was a little new to golf. Naturally, we were playing a little bit slowly; however, we didn't slow down the group behind us at all and we offered to let them pass if they'd like. As we entered the back 9, one of the staff came up to us and told us we were playing very slowly. We knew we were, and we told him that we were a little new to golf. His response was appalling: "This is a county course, and we have standards here. If you are having a tough time out there, then feel free to take up bowling instead." Instead of playing the back nine under pressure, we just played the front nine twice and got out of there. I won't be going back.

Reviewed By Herstory_62 - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

A classic magnificent campus in the heart of a bustling & charming historic town that maintains centuries of tradition, alongside state of the art libraries, museums, facilities & a magnificent chapel. An obviously diversified student population of women & men enhances the ambiance, as well as the appeal for generations to come.

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.

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.

Management was EXTREMELY RUDE!!! because we brought a cake and gatherings (we had 9 family members) "are not encouraged." Nowhere in the guidelines does it say no cakes, it says no birthday cakes but we did not have a birthday cake. he also informed us that "99% of wineries in the country would not allow it " yet he failed to say anything to the family who was chaning their baby on a table.

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.
