Whether you’re planning a trip to Newark, NJ, or you’re a resident that hasn’t had time to explore yet, Value Van & Car Rental wants to share our top three favorite places in the area. Not only are we a local New Jersey business that knows the area, we also meet many local tourists and travelers along the way.

Things To Do in Newark, NJ

1. The Newark Museum

The Newark Museum is a great destination for families or groups who want a day of art, culture, and education. You can explore spaces in the planetarium or enjoy an evening of good music at Jazz in the Garden. The museum features a wide range of exhibits, events, and programs. Even better, the exhibits at the Newark Museum are always changing. So if you’ve been there before, you’re likely to experience something new the next time you go.

2. The Ironbound District

At Value Van, we love a good family trip, but we also see the value in occasionally taking a trip without the kids. If you’re looking for some fun things to do that might be boring for young kids, check out the Ironbound District. You’ll enjoy diverse shopping, dining, and entertainment. Sample cuisine from Ecuador or Italy, or grab some sushi or an adult drink! The Ironbound District is conveniently located close by many other Newark attractions, so you can even park your rental car and walk around for the day.

3. Branch Brook Park

Have you heard of the famous Newark Cherry Blossom Festival? The Branch Brook Park is home to this fun festival and also features free concerts throughout the summer. Visit the fun and festive green space and take a walk around the lake. You can even pack a picnic lunch, spend some time at the children’s garden, or run around on the playground. It’s a beautiful space to spend the day, especially as the weather begins to cool off this fall.
