Conveniently situated in the centre of the Metro New York region, Newark is an excellent base for exploring the largest metropolitan area in the USA. Distances are short so it a great region for touring on your own. In addition to great cities, the region is also home to some stunning landscapes and visitors can spend a night ogling the breath taking views of the Palisades, enjoying the amusement park at Coney Island or living it up in the Hamptons by hiring an RV.
Newark itself is a culturally affluent city home to a number of attractions, though it is more popular for its excursions. Manhattan is no doubt the most popular place to spend a few days and even nights, while the Atlantic Ocean beaches make for a pleasant day in the warmer months. It is also worthwhile to drive to Philadelphia or to the 'Green Mountain state' of Vermont.
The Newark Museum complex, located on Washington Avenue in Downtown Newark, is a National Historic Landmark and the most popular attraction in the city, followed closely by the French Gothic-styled Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart, the fourth largest cathedral in the country featuring over 200 stained glass windows.
At the north end of the city sits the 360-acre Branch Brook Park, the oldest park in the country, dating back to 1895, and used as a training ground for the army during the American Civil War. Today it is filled with cherry blossom trees, ponds and rolling hills.
Lincoln Park is pegged as Newark's 'Arts District', as it is home to a number of galleries and music venues, including the City Without Walls and Newark Symphony Hall. It is also home to an eclectic mix of cultures as a result of its affordable housing, gospel music production and Newark School of the Arts.
Just outside of the city is the Thomas Edison National Historical Park, the home of Thomas Edison. Glenmont, the manor, was built in 1887 in Late Victorian style, while the laboratory building is where the motion picture camera, sound recordings and improved phonographs were invented.
Liberty Harbor RV Park is open year round and just 15 minutes from the city. Facilities here include Wi-Fi, an onsite restaurant, a laundry room and 24-hour security. The site boasts fabulous views of the Statue of Liberty and offers direct ferry service to and from New York City.
TripleBrook Campground is a family holiday park in Blairstown, just northwest of the city. It is a beautiful spot that is surrounded by the Kittatinny Mountains, with facilities that include two playgrounds, two swimming pools -- one of which is for adults only, a tennis court and a working farm.
Jugtown Mountain Campsites is a great RV park in Asbury, just west of Newark. It has 150 sites that are spread across 100 acres of land and features a swimming pool, a playground, picnic tables and fire pits.
The state is served by numerous interstates and freeways, some of which are toll routes, and there are plenty of rest stops along the way. Driving here is on the right and traffic can be quite heavy during rush hours and on long weekends. Left turns are prohibited in New Jersey and interstates have exit ramps for turning left. The legal drinking and driving limit is 0.08 per cent and police take this seriously.
