Located just 8 miles west of New York City, Newark is the largest city in New Jersey. It originated as a shipbuilding center during World War I, but has since become a major transportation hub, including one of the country’s most-traveled airports and seaports. Newark has rich music and art communities, including the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and Newark Museum, as well as the Museum of African-American music, which is a Smithsonian affiliate. Due to its history as one of the great jazz cities, Newark still boasts some of the best music and entertainment clubs. In addition, Newark is within miles of the home of the NBA’s New Jersey Nets, NHL’s New Jersey Devils, Major League Soccer’s New York/New Jersey Metro Stars, as well as NFL’s New York’s Giants and Jets’ stadiums, due to its proximity to the city. A short drive to New York City brings you right in the center of the baseball action, with New York’s Yankees and Mets, and a little over an hour’s drive takes you to Philadelphia, the home of the NFL’s Eagles, MLB’s Phillies, NBA’s 76ers, and NHL’s Flyers.

Newark has no shortage of outdoor fun. Aside from the many nearby parks and beaches, including the well-known Asbury Park and Atlantic City, Newark offers many nationally-ranked golf courses within a short distance, as well as skiing at one of Pennsylvania’s premiere resorts. Newark also offers one of the best waterparks in the country, Mountain Creek in Vernon, with its many slides and tunnels snaking through mountainous terrain.
