Get inside the Trenton Battle Monument (+1 609 737 0623, http://www.state.nj.us) take the rickety elevator up and you will be treated to a 360-degree view of the area. One word that describes both the monument and the view is "impressive!"

With close to 100 acres of greens, the Cadwalader Park is Trenton's oldest park. It was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted.

Sounds familiar? Olmsted also designed New York's Central Park.

The park has a deer paddock, a small lake, hundreds of trees and a stream. Go on a picnic or on a nature walk across this beautiful space, which also houses the Trenton City Museum.
