Road trips from Newark: what to do, what to see

Liberty State Park

Liberty State Park

Of course New York City is just a short jaunt away but Liberty State Park is even closer, with ferries to Ellis Island and to the Statue of Liberty. From Jersey City, take the light rail or drive to the docks to catch the ferry across.

Coney Island

Atlantic Ocean

Newark is located in northern New Jersey which means that it’s hardly any drive at all before you reach the Atlantic Ocean and some beautiful beaches. Coney Island and Rockaway are the closest and have the best facilities but Jersey Shore is also a treat. Be prepared though, the water isn’t ever that warm!



Sitting just across the New Jersey border in Pennsylvania is Philadelphia… home to the famous Cream Cheese! Philadelphia is called the “Birthplace of America” and is a popular stop for people on the constitution trail. Benjamin Franklin’s house, the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and Washington Square are all not to be missed.
