Newark

Explore Newark and discover its wonderful range of attractions.

This area of North Jersey has approximately 280,000 people.

Visitors will find this destination approximately 45 miles from Trenton, the state capital of New Jersey. It is also about 8 miles from Short Hills.

Remember to round up the kids and pay a visit to Bowcraft Amusement Park for a day of fun and laughter.

If you enjoy animals, put the Turtle Back Zoo on your itinerary. Be sure to ask the staff about feeding times and where to find the zoo's rarer inhabitants.

Flowers, magnificent trees and meandering garden paths await budding horticulturalists at the Presby Memorial Iris Gardens and the Van Vleck House & Gardens.

Pack a picnic hamper and enjoy the quiet, green surroundings of Branch Brook Park and Montgomery Park. Military Park and Unami Park are two more excellent places to while away the afternoon and catch up on some reading.

Switch your phone to silent and have a rest from the stresses of the modern world at Wilson Park and Eagle Rock Reservation. Nature-loving visitors will also have a wonderful time at Nomahegan Park and Warinanco Park.

Set aside a few hours to explore the Jewish Museum of New Jersey, an educational cultural space. Take a self-guided tour, lose yourself in the exhibits and be sure to ask the staff about any special happenings.

A haven for art connoisseurs, this area houses a range of spaces in which amateur and professional artists can exhibit their work. Start off your tour of this creative hotspot with a visit to the Newark Museum and the Montclair Art Museum. Afterwards, if you still have some energy left in the tank, wind up the afternoon at the City Without Walls and the Gallery Aferro.

Take a journey back to a previous era and take in the enlightening exhibits at the New Jersey Historical Society Museum and the Liberty Hall Museum.

To learn more about the events and people who shaped this place, consider visiting its many historic monuments and buildings. Commence your history tour at Newark City Hall or the Seton Hall University. You might also like to snap a few photos at the Thomas Edison National Historic Site and the Highlawn Pavilion.

Whether you're a spiritual person or not, you'll be sure to enjoy a visit to Grace Church and Cathedral of the Sacred Heart. If you want to see more religious sites, head to St. Patrick's Church and Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart.

With such a range of educational institutions in the area, it makes sense that it's such a busy and dynamic place. If you'd be interested in learning about some of the faculties, visit the Montclair State University or the Kean University. The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and the Rutgers University Newark are also worth stopping by if you're in the area.

Jersey Gardens Outlet Mall is the perfect place to head to if you enjoy shopping or you want a bite to eat.

Wellmont Theatre and the Alexander Kasser Theater are much-loved theaters that are patronized by visitors and artistically minded locals alike.

This region's most popular sights can overshadow its lesser-known, but equally rewarding attractions. The Paper Mill Playhouse and the Newark Public Library might catch your interest. Also, think about visiting the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and the Newark Symphony Hall if time allows.
