Located at the heart of New Jersey's Gateway Region, Newark is the perfect destination for those looking to visit the Big Apple and retreat from the bustling action of New York's busy streets at the end of the day. A mere 30 minutes from Manhattan, Newark offers charming and historic neighbourhoods, world-class restaurants and one of the most visited performing arts centres in the United States.
Newark truly offers something unique to visitors by allowing such easy access to any of the five boroughs of New York City. With New Jersey Transit, a day of shopping and dining in Williamsburg, one of Brooklyn's many funky, artistically inclined neighbourhoods, is just a train ride away. And while the endless attractions of the big city are right at your fingertips, this city of nearly 300,000 people might surprise visitors with the diverse activities it presents.
A trip to the New Jersey Performing Arts Centre, which hosts an astonishing six million visitors each year, is home to the Grammy Award-winning New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and is located in the heart of the city's cultural district. Newark boasts some of New Jersey's most significant historic parks. Military Park and Lincoln Park are filled with monuments, museums and galleries and make for a great area of the city to take in on foot.
The Ironbound district, just east of Penn Station and downtown Newark, is home to of Newark's finest offerings of Portuguese, Brazilian and Spanish cuisine. This cultural hub hosts nearly 200 restaurants and some of the city's best markets.
If it's sporting events you're looking to take in, you've got options at the Prudential Center. The new facility is home to the NHL's New Jersey Devils. With a capacity of nearly 20,000, check listings for concerts and shows, as this is a venue on most major concert tours.
Whether you're looking for the best and brightest of New York City, or the historic and cultural charm of Newark, visit two cities instead of just one, and make the most of your trip.
