Trenton – Things to do with your Team

On the Lower Trenton Bridge is an illuminated sign that reads “Trenton Makes, The World Takes,” which was originally installed in 1935. The city adopted the slogan in 1917 to represent Trenton’s then-leading role as a major manufacturing center for rubber, wire rope, ceramics, and cigars. While the prevalence of manufacturing and industrial jobs may have declined in the 1970s, there is still something else that Trenton makes: a great team travel destination. As the capital of New Jersey, Trenton is home to many fun things to see and do with your team, including the New Jersey State Museum and Arm & Hammer Park, home of the Trenton Thunder. A visit to the beautiful town of Princeton, located just a short drive away, is another great way to spend some time with your team during your stay in the Capital City.

Over two million specimens, objects, and works of art that have been collected since the early 1800s are housed in the museum’s main building.

Arm & Hammer Park

Trenton - Things to do with your Team - Travel - Hotels4TeamsTake the team to a Trenton Thunder game at Arm & Hammer Park and experience Minor League Baseball at its very best. As the Double-A affiliate of the world-famous New York Yankees, the Thunder offer the highest level of baseball you’ll find in New Jersey. While most of the field fence is covered with advertising signage, the right field fence was purposely kept short so that fans could enjoy views of the neighboring Delaware River. You also might get a chance to see a left-handed slugger sink a homerun into the water and, technically speaking, out of the state entirely, since the Delaware River is the border between New Jersey and Pennsylvania. A fantastic game of baseball isn’t all that Arm & Hammer Park has in store for you and your team however. There, you’ll enjoy affordable prices, a family-friendly atmosphere, frequent postgame firework shows, and a variety of delicious food offerings. 1 Thunder Rd, Trenton, NJ 08611


Old Barracks Museum

While it might not be the first landmark that comes to mind when one thinks of famous New Jersey attractions, the Old Barracks has been an incredibly significant historical site throughout much of the state’s history. ​In 1758, during the French and Indian War, the Old Barracks was constructed by the colony of New Jersey in direct response to petitions from residents who were protesting the compulsory quartering of soldiers in their own homes. Later in 1776, it stood witness to the Battle of Trenton, which would serve as the turning point of the American Revolution. Today, this storied building is home to the Old Barracks Museum, an educational center for colonial and American history and stands as the last remaining structure of its kind. The museum offers 45-minute guided tours and interpretations of American colonial life in an authentic setting that makes history come to life. Reservations are required for groups of 15 or more. 101 Barrack St, Trenton, NJ 08608
