The city has a few interesting attractions to offer its visitors such as the Grounds for Sculpture. This is an outdoor art park which now resides on some old fairgrounds with some of the old buildings having been ‘recycled’ as it were by making galleries and studios out of them. The exhibited sculptures and botanical plantings will change as the seasons do but make sure to look for the three-dimensional tabelau of “The Dream”. The park has been beautifully landscaped and it features paved pathways throughout.
The Planetarium is an attraction that has become a sort of tradition in the region with thousands of school children and visitors visiting it each year.
The Trenton Barracks can be visited as well, where General George Washington housed his troops during the American Revolution.
The New Jersey State House is the second oldest state house in continuous legislative use in the country. The building was erected during 1792 with several addition being brought to the building in the 19th century. The State House is not built to look like the United State Capitol Building, it is shaped like a sideways H and features a golden dome.
