Newark, New Jersey, is a gem of a city often undiscovered by travelers. It's not only the largest city in New Jersey, but also one of the oldest cities in the entire U.S., established in 1666. Take advantage of its culture, history, architecture, and food offerings by booking a flight to Newark and making it your next vacation destination.
There's something for everybody to do in Newark, none of which are far from most Newark hotels. If immersing yourself in culture and the arts is your thing, head to the Newark Museum, which was redesigned in recent years by Michael Graves. The museum has a large collection of American art as well as a planetarium, hall of science, and memorial garden featuring a centuries-old schoolhouse. Afterward, head to the N.J. Performing Arts Center (PAC) for concerts and ballet performances, or to Newark Symphony Hall for music. Sports lovers should check into hotels in Newark and then head straight to the Prudential Center to take in a Devils hockey game from October to April or a Seton Hall Pirates basketball game from November through March. The Rock, as locals call is, also hosts Disney on Ice shows and big-name music concerts.
Newark, and specifically its Ironbound District, has long been known throughout New Jersey as the place to go for Portuguese and Spanish cuisine. In recent years, Brazilian restaurants have also opened in the Ironbound, adding rodízio and churrascaria to an already-enticing selection of paellas and sangria. The University Heights area, home to the campuses of Rutgers University-Newark campus and NJIT, has several bars and pubs, some open late.
