Jersey City is not only a population location for a getaway, it's also packed with U.S history. From the late 1800s until the end of the second World War, Jersey City was the first destination for many immigrants entering into the US via the nearby Ellis Island. Many of these immigrants moved to New York City soon after their arrival, and this era was the beginning of the diverse New York - New Jersey areas.
As part of the New York Metropolitan Area, Jersey City is fenced by the Hudson River and the New York Bay. There are plenty of great things to do and amazing sights to see in Jersey City; plus the commute to Manhattan is easily done using the train services. From diverse restaurants, parks and pubs, to museums and landmarks, there's never a dull moment in Jersey City.
Jersey City has many fun things to do -- you may even find that you run out of time to see everything!
Head to Liberty State Park for a scenic view of the wonderful skyline of the city; remember to bring a camera for photos of the lit-up night sky. For a stroll by the water, the Liberty Landing Marina is a peaceful spot to watch boats come and go or enjoy dinner on the water front. There are also parks and cycling paths throughout Jersey City for travelers looking to get active.
For a little culture, the Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre is a stunning building dating back to the 1920s and still plays movies to this day. Alternatively, the Liberty Science Center is not far away, and is a great day out for families to learn from the interactive science exhibits. Elsewhere, the Empty Sky 9/11 Memorial is a powerful tribute to the tragic event and is a sobering reminder of NYC's recent history.
If you're planning a visit to Manhattan be sure to see the Statue of Liberty, the Metropolitan Museum of Arts, Central Park, and the Empire State Building (to name only a few places!).
