Three Kid-Friendly Attractions in Newark, NJ

Are you vacationing in the greater Newark, NJ, area, and you need some suggestions on fun things to do with your family? You’ve come to the right place. As a Newark-based local business, our staff here at Value Van & Car Rental knows the area well. In addition to hooking you up with a comfortable minivan rental, we also suggest the following Newark attractions.

Things to Do with Kids

1. Branch Brook Park

Do you need a space for the kids to run and play? Branch Brook Park is one of the most popular places for people to enjoy the outdoors in Newark. And if you happen to be here in April, be sure to check out the Cherry Blossom Festival; the trees are sure to be in bloom and you can find all kinds of family-friendly things to do.

2. Newark Museum

You don’t have to go to NYC to enjoy a great museum. While the Newark Museum is geared more toward older kids, teens, and adults, it’s a great place for fun and education. The cultural and art exhibits are truly one of a kind. You can explore interactive displays from around the world.

3. Newark Penn Station

Is Thomas the Train a favorite among the little people in your home? Kids of a certain age seem to love that little blue engine, and we bet they’ll also enjoy seeing the transit trains up close and personal. In fact, we recommend that you opt for a ticket and take them on a ride. You may decide to add a day trip to NYC or just circle back after the next station. Either way, a train exploration can be a fun way to spend the day.
