Riverton is home to the Riverton Yacht Club. One of the oldest and still active yacht clubs in the country. Many resident's sailboats make their home at this wonderful landmark. Downtown, the new Riverline Light Rail system has contributed to a resurgence in public transportation. The Riverline offers daily service shuttling travelers between metro Camden and Trenton with connections to Philadelphia and New York City.
