With its distinctive exhibits, exceptional entertainment venues, and a variety of eclectic dining options, Trenton is more than just the State capital of New Jersey.
Walk in the footsteps of the American Revolution at the Old Barracks Museum, or explore natural history and fine art at The State Museum and Planetarium just steps away.

Take in a show at Passage Theatre at The Mill Hill Playhouse. Catch a spectacular event at the Sun National Bank Center then walk over to Trenton Social for a craft brew and a bite to eat.
