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.

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.

Crossing Vineyards and Winery

Reviewed By terrifina - Pennsy

The winery is really beautifully done, with lush flora everywhere. They have invested well in the property and made it a place to admire the charming atmosphere.

The problem is it serves less than charming wine, witch is kind of why you would go to a winery in the first place, Worth a visit to see, but my guess is you won't be coming back for the libations...

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

Washington Crossing State Historic Park

Reviewed By podrozniczka60 - New Jersey

It costs $5 per car to get in on weekends - free on weekdays which favors leisure people who do not work on weekdays.. You can get the trail map at the entrance or in the Visitor Center. Our picnicking was surprisingly inconvenient. One of the picnic grounds you have to preregister for - likely for groups or large families - so we could not use it. The largest picnicking area was behind the Visitor Center .It is a very large beautiful space with many tables and at least three barbecues but nobody using the facilities, nobody sitting at the tables. The reason is - there is only handicapped parking and NO regular parking. We had to carry the supplies through the grass 200 or more meters. We did it but I can see why others do not . Totally awkward. There is a third picnic area which we discovered later where parking is close to the tables. So if you want to picnic and have a lot of supplies go to Knox Grove area.
We enjoyed our hiking but objectively the trails are poorly maintained and marked just OK. The best it is to combine a few trails -red,green,blue - to have a more substantial hike. The Nature center area offers "clockwise" and "counterclockwise" trails. Continental lane trail is probably most enjoyable if you want something simple.

New Jersey State Police Museum

An interesting museum centering on criminal activity.

Reviewed By happy_twin_family - New Jersey

Its not a big museum (basically 1 room of displays)- but its free and it has a police car to climb in. That makes it a winner for both mommy and the 6 yr olds! Both boys are obsessed with the armed forces. We spent about 2 hours pouring over the confiscated gun display, the videos, and of course the police car! The police car had working lights and a radio the boys could play with. That made for at least a 1/2 hour worth of fun! There is also a small gift shop (which is open from 11 AM - 1 PM) that has some fun police clothes for kids. Overall, it was worth the trip, although I would not designate it as a major destination.

Took a group of college basketball players here to pass the time on a Monday night. Even after spending 2 days visiting NYC, many of them said this was their favorite part of the trip. The lights were awesome and the market at the end of the show was just as enjoyable. The team loved getting ice cream, hot chocolate, etc and sitting around the fire and singing Christmas songs

Enjoyed visiting this vineyard for the first time. They have a variety of estate grown, estate fermented, and wines just hosted at the estate. Many of their reds are actually made from grapes coming out of California, which generally means that they are superior to others that you might have in this area of the country. There's is something for everyone including whites, reds, sparkling and even one blush. They have a variety of dry, off dry, and sweet wines. I was surprised to see that many of their wines were off dry. That feature seemed to smooth out the wine rather than sweeten it.

Jazz on Sundays is fabulous as is the variety of foods that they offer - which includes different types of cheese plates and Sicilian pizzas.

The wine tastings are just the right price at $6 or $10 including the glass. The day we visited the counter was very hectic, so it wasn't much of an experience. Thus, the removal of 1 star. I would have liked to have learned about the wines a little bit more and about the vineyard. The pourer thought I was young so perhaps contributed to why they were superficial about handing over the knowledge.

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.
