Visiting Trenton

Trenton is the capital of New Jersey arts and culture, and the epicenter of New Jersey government and politics. With affordable sports and entertainment venues, historic sites, and great restaurants, Trenton has something for everyone. Whether it’s business meetings, conferences, festivals, art and theater events, or simply a nice dinner out, Trenton is the most accessible New Jersey city. Come for business, stay for fun. 

Visiting Trenton has never been easier.  Located on the Northeast Corridor line, rail travelers can choose from a full schedule of Amtrak trains bound for Washington D.C., Boston and beyond, as well as NJ Transit lines throughout the state and into New York City.  In addition, SEPTA regional rail provides easy access from Philadelphia and other points of interest in nearby Pennsylvania.

Major highways like Route 1, Interstates 95, 295, 195 and the New Jersey Turnpike are all directly accessible in Trenton. Air travelers are taking advantage of the Trenton Mercer Airport, minutes from downtown and a major hub for Frontier Airlines flying to Chicago, New Orleans, and several Florida cities.
