Holidays in Newark

Often, it's the people living in a city that make it special. In this part of North Jersey, you'll find 280,000 of them.

This destination is located 75 kilometres away from Trenton, the state capital, and 14 kilometres away from Short Hills.

The kids will be filled with awe and delight when they visit the Turtle Back Zoo. They'll experience a firsthand look at how animals behave as well as discover what it takes to look after them.

Newark has some gorgeous green spaces where you can check out a variety of plant specimens. The Presby Memorial Iris Gardens and the Van Vleck House & Gardens are the must-visits.

Kick off your shoes and feel the cool grass beneath your feet at a green oasis like Branch Brook Park or Montgomery Park. You can also sit back and watch life go by at Military Park and Unami Park.

Newark offers a range of natural reserves, such as Wilson Park and Eagle Rock Reservation. For some more downtime, go to Nomahegan Park and Warinanco Park.

Walk the halls and admire the carefully selected collections at the Jewish Museum of New Jersey. You're bound to find something which arouses your curiosity.

Art connoisseurs come from across the globe to experience Newark's respected collections, and the Newark Museum and the Montclair Art Museum are often at the top of their schedules. More one-of-a-kind canvases and striking sculptures await you at the City Without Walls and the Gallery Aferro.

One of the best ways to understand the present is to step back into the past. Find out what's made this city the destination it is today at the New Jersey Historical Society Museum and the Liberty Hall Museum.

Step back in time by exploring Newark City Hall and the Seton Hall University. They're superb places to gain a real understanding of Newark's history. If you'd like to learn more, the Thomas Edison National Historic Site and the Highlawn Pavilion should be next on your itinerary.

Looking to add a spiritual element to your break? Stop by Grace Church and Cathedral of the Sacred Heart. St. Patrick's Church and Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart are some other historically important sites.

Why not plan an outing to the Kean University? It's one of the area's most prominent places of higher learning. Marvel at the modern facilities and find out what it's like to be a student there. Two other top institutions for higher learning worth seeing are the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and the Rutgers University Newark.

Before you load up your holiday slideshow back home, you'll have to give out a couple of souvenirs. You're sure to find some great ones for sale at Jersey Gardens Outlet Mall.

Adore the glitz and glamour of a show? Find out if there's anything happening at Wellmont Theatre or the Alexander Kasser Theater. They're both well-known venues, so it might be wise to get tickets in advance.

When you're on the road, it's sometimes the less popular destinations that'll replay in your memories once you have returned home. Two places which fit that bill in Newark are the Paper Mill Playhouse and the Newark Public Library. Alternatively, you could visit the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and the Echo Lake Country Club.
