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.

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

I came here with my kids (2 & 4.) They had a fun time but I probably would not go back again. We went on Father Day weekend and it was mobbed (not to mention they were running a groupon so the line to get in was hectic. Just to give you an idea of the type of place it is-- someone stole my husbands flipflops when he was in the kiddie pool and a teen looking Dad yelled at me because he thought I was skipping the entrance line (I wasn't).

However the kids enjoyed it. We did Lunch with Elmo (they get to take pictures with the characters, my 4 year old was entranced by them but the 2 year old was scared and screaming (there were a lot of screaming kids) Food is typical cafeteria food(which it to be expected) At this age though, unless your kids LOVE Elmo, this amusement park is not too different than any other park. It is good for a one time visit, just to get pictures with Elmo but I would not come back again. Also, if you come come on a cool day. It gets very hot/ the sun is beating down on you so my kids were done after less than 2 hours.

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.

OMG!!! what a great event. Was turned onto this Blues event by a friend who has been attending for years.
The music was great but 5he venue even better. The Snipes have created an environmental and education center and designated their farm as such. It cannot be sold for development. WHOO HOO!!!
The education center teaches kids about farming and agriculture. There are programs all year. They also hold a number of festivals during the summer.
Well worth checking out. I will return next year!

Vault Brewing Co.

Reviewed By Gilberto R - Yardley, Pennsylvania

Love the beer selection and menu items. Friendly staff (for the most part) ...some staff think they work in NYC...trust me you will notice that and pick them out quick, but that's a hit or miss and entertaining to say the least..you are in bucks county PA darling. Besides that, I highly recommend this joint...great for small groups and to make some memories with friends and family. Not great for kids and some staff make it obvious they don't like kids at their station..but they are accommodating to families with kids. Jazz night is a must, great music, great people and atmosphere, great food, beer and great staff 95% of the time.

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.
