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 that provided a premiere vantage point in colonial times and today protects homes and businesses from being prone to flooding.
The “little city with a lot of charm” offers visitors a pleasant experience like none other – featuring beautiful and historic architecture, a charming downtown with boutiques, galleries, restaurants, pubs, and breweries, and a vibrant outdoor dining scene.
Bordentown is home to more than 30 annual cultural and historical events that attract tens of thousands of visitors from across the region, including the fall Cranberry Festival, the spring Street Fair, the summer Garden Tour, a revolutionary pub crawl, and historical walking tours.
Bordentown is conveniently located minutes from the NJ Turnpike, Interstates 195 & 295, and Routes 130 & 206, providing easy access to the metropolitan area and light rail service that offers connections to New York, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, and even Washington D.C.
The city boasts an abundance of green space, parks and trails and has a first-rate school system with multiple schools located within walking distance. It’s the type of place where you would want to purchase your first home and to raise your children.
