You are flying into Newark Airport (EWR), and after a quick and easy trip to Value Van and Car Rental, you’re ready to hop in your SUV rental and explore what this part of New Jersey has to offer. Well, you’re in for a treat. Newark is not without some great attractions. Here are just a few we think you might enjoy.
1. Newark Museum
A hub of cultural displays both local and global, the Newark Museum is a great way to spend your time in Newark. You can even grab lunch at the Museum Café to make a day of it.
2. Branch Brook Park
The best time of year to visit Branch Brook Park is during the Cherry Blossom Festival, when the trees are in full bloom. However, if you miss this blessed event, we still recommend spending some time in this beautiful Newark outdoor space.
3. Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart
This old church is one of the most beautiful sites not only in Newark, but also the United States. It’s a testament to great architecture and American history, and it’s worth at least a drive-by if not a tour.
4. Military Park
Located in downtown Newark, Military Park was recently revitalized and is now a prime location for community events. You can take a walk, join a group doing yoga, or let the kids play on the Imagination Playground.
Interested in trying some fine cuisine? Head over to the Ironbound District of Newark, which is known for great food from all over the world. Plus, Ironbound is fairly close to the Prudential Center and other Newark attractions. With all that Newark has to offer, you won’t have much down time during your visit.
