Outlet shopping, Victorian homes, the trial of the century (well, the 1930s anyway) and riveting railways – Flemington’s attractions are numerous and diverse.
If you’re a train aficionado, head to Northlandz (495 Rt. 202 S.), which houses the world’s largest miniature railroad, with more than 100 trains navigating eight miles of track. The exhibit meanders for a mile and includes minute mountains, cities and bridges.
Ride the Raritan River Railway, a replica steam train located here; for a longer excursion, take the scenic Black River & Western Railroad
, which runs between Flemington and Ringoes.
The station at the Flemington end is conveniently adjacent to Liberty Village Premium Outlets
, with 40 outlet stores, ranging from cookware to kids' clothes and including perennial favorites J. Crew, Coach and Timberland.
For a more historic look at the town, stop by its oldest building, the 1756 Flemington Castle Museum.
