NESTLED high along the Delaware River, Bordentown City has been a key center of American history, commerce, and transportation since its founding in 1682 – and for good reason. The one square mile city is located on a bluff, which provided a premiere vantage point in colonial times, and today protects homes and businesses from being prone to flooding.
Conveniently located just minutes from the NJ Turnpike, Interstates 195 & 295, and Routes 130 & 206, providing easy access to the metropolitan area, Bordentown City is also home to a stop on the River Line – NJ TRANSIT’s light rail service offering connections to New York, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, and even Washington D.C.
In recent years, Bordentown City has become a regional destination point, offering something for everyone with its vibrant downtown commercial scene, public and private boating access, and more than 30 annual cultural and historical events, including the fall Cranberry Festival, the summer Garden Tour, the Street of Dreams classic car show, seasonal “chocolate walks,” and a revolutionary pub crawl.
Residents and visitors alike love the walkability of historic Bordentown, along with its stunning architecture, boutiques, galleries, restaurants, pubs, breweries, and thriving outdoor dining scene.
Bordentown also boasts an abundance of green space, parks and trails and has a first-rate school system with multiple schools located within walking distance, making it the premiere location for young families looking to put down roots.
