Mercer County consists of 12 vibrant municipalities that all have unique attractions and amenities. You will find three boroughs, seven townships, the town of Princeton and our Capital City, Trenton, all within the region. 

Mercer County features two of the most populated communities in the State of New Jersey – Trenton and Hamilton. Trenton, noted for its unique role in the American and Industrial Revolutions, sits on the banks of the Delaware River. The city features four distinct wards with many neighborhoods. The housing stock resounds with distinct architecture and new urban residential spaces that were once industrial buildings. It also boasts a burgeoning arts community and entertainment pieces like Arm & Hammer Park (home of the New Yankees affiliate, the Trenton Thunder) and the CURE Insurance Arena.

In contrast, quaint boroughs such as Pennington, Hightstown and Hopewell are recognized as small town centers with unique and relaxing charm.  All of them feature a main street full of local establishments. 

Hopewell Township offers open spaces on the foothills of the Sourland Mountains while Ewing, Hamilton, Lawrence, Robbinsville, East Windsor and West Windsor are attractive suburban communities with excellent shopping areas, commercial parks and recreational spaces.   

Finally, Princeton, a town that is internationally recognized for its outstanding Princeton University, is also a picturesque community of charming shops and restaurants and quaint neighborhoods.  Similar to Trenton, Princeton has played a unique and prominent historic role in the making of our country.

Mercer County’s 12 municipalities are the perfect mix of city, suburban and rural life.
