Lights, camera, action! Fort Lee, New Jersey is over 2,600 miles from Hollywood but has something in common with Tinseltown. The Bergen County borough is the birthplace of the American movie industry and provided the backdrop for a host of iconic motion pictures at the turn of the 20th century. Today, the former movie capital embraces its legacy. Stay in Fort Lee hotels and be transported back to the early days of cinema.
The Fort Lee Museum is a great place to learn about the borough's past. Explore artifacts on loan from film historians and find out about the first movie studios in Fort Lee, including the Champion Studio on Fifth Street, which still stands today. If you prefer the great American outdoors, head over to Fort Lee Historic Park, a 33-acre cliff-top landscape with a reconstructed Revolutionary War encampment. Commemorate the 1776 revolt against the British – who wanted to control New York City – and find out how and why Fort Lee played a pivotal role in the war. Stay in hotels near Fort Lee to be close to other local landmarks such as the George Washington Bridge, a double-decked suspension bridge that connects Fort Lee to the Washington Heights neighborhood across the Hudson River in Manhattan.
Taylor Ham – a pork roll eaten sliced and grilled – is a popular breakfast option in the Garden State.
