Celebrating after TCNJ-RTC Commencement
Why not consider making commencement a full day of family fun? There are many local attractions to add to your memorable day!
Grounds for Sculpture
Stroll acres of lovely grounds with sculptures around every turn. Peacocks stroll the grounds freely, there is a small lake and its truly a beautiful place to spend an afternoon.
Rat’s Restaurant is nearby if you need to stop for a bite to eat.
If you have little ones, check out Sesame Place, an amusement park based on the popular children’s television show. Sesame Place is a day full of fun located in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, about 15 minutes from TCNJ.
Check their website for information regarding rates and seasonal hours.
New Hope, PA and Lambertville, NJ

There are several restaurant choices for both lunch and dinner.
