Small town, quaint and simple to navigate. Good restaurants if you look few and far between the chain restaurants and fast food. A few hidden gems; for instance, Nino's Pastry Shop on quakerbridge road is a small business, (bakery) but by no means are they small in what they bring to the table. I mean, the quality is impeccable and even if you don't have much of a sweet-tooth, the young ladies in there are so polite and helpful, it's worth the trip just to see their smiles. I really enjoy this town, and when my fiancé is home from school, I always visit her at her home (Hamilton Township,) simply because there is a lot to do in this not so well-known place. Appreciate the small towns, they're sometimes surprising. Also, the location is central. You're about thirty minutes from Philadelphia, and an hour from New York City via the train. The town has two nearby train stations, both of which work well and efficiently. Big fan of this area.

Hamilton is expensive, not for those who are trying. I live in Hamilton, and I hate that that there is no equal opportunity of young kids. Childcare is extremely expensive for those who are not financially stable. Its better to stay in areas like Trenton when you have young kids for better assistance.
I used to live in Trenton, NJ and ever since I moved to Hamilton, NJ my life has gotten better in every way. There's less stress because there's less crime and the people here are friendly. Almost every neighbor has a dog(as I do) and even our dogs get along! Hamilton is a quiet, clean, peaceful area and I'm proud to say I live here.
