An Easy Way to Travel for History Buffs, Jets Fans & Bargain Hunters
Known as New York’s tough neighbor, Newark, as New Jersey’s biggest city, has no shortage of attractions thanks in part to ongoing revitalization efforts. Several large parks, art galleries and noteworthy architecture are worth a visit. The Newark Museum is a complex of art and science exhibits. Cheer on the Newark Bears as they battle their minor-league rival at Riverfront Stadium.
Looking for a night out? Try the Portuguese and Spanish restaurants in the city’s Ironbound District before catching a show at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center.

Newark Offers Something for Everyone
Regardless of your interests, there is no shortage of places to go and things to do in Newark and the surrounding areas. Below are some of the points of interest you want to miss on your Newark bus charter trip.
- Entertainment & Amusement Parks — The state’s largest city and the surrounding area are home to some of the region’s biggest concert venues. When it’s not in use by the New Jersey Devils, the Prudential Center in downtown Newark has hosted performances by Kanye West and Katy Perry. The likes of Bruce Springsteen, Beyoncé and Bon Jovi have played at the IZOD Center and MetLife Stadium in nearby East Rutherford.
- Arts & Cultural—The Newark art and culture scene is a colleague dotted with big and small venues alike. At the heart of the city’s Downtown/Arts District sits the Newark Museum, a complex that weaves together an 80-gallery collection of arts and sciences exhibits with a miniature zoo, a planetarium and the Ballantine House, a restored Victorian-era mansion. Within walking distance rests the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, home of the NJ Symphony Orchestra. Looking for a day trip? Head to nearby Montclair and visit the English-style gardens of the Avis Campbell Gardens or one of several Victorian mansion and Arts and Crafts movement homes.
- Restaurants & Shopping — If you learn anything from a shopping trip to New Jersey, it should be this: Shop early, shop often and never pay retail. Only a short drive from Newark, the Secaucus Outlets grew out of the many large distribution warehouses in the town's commercial sector. It’s not glitzy, buts it’s fun with names like Gucci, Kenneth Cole, Lenox, Calvin Klein, and Tommy Hilfiger. Need a bite to eat after your shopping sojourn? The famed Tick Tock Diner, just a short ride down Route 3 in nearby Clifton, is open 24/7, or head back to Newark and pick from one of the 170 restaurants in the city’s Ironbound District.
- Golf Courses & Sports Venues — The New York Giants and the New York Jets share the MetLife Stadium. The Prudential Center is home ice for the New Jersey Devils, winner of the 2003 Stanley Cup. But there are other sports teams and sports venues capable of drawing a crowd. Horse-racing enthusiasts have the Meadowlands Racetrack, which features harness and thoroughbred racing. Also Newark’s Riverfront Field is home field for the Newark Bears, the New York Yankees’ minor-league farm team.
- Parks & Outdoor Activities — Branch Brook Park got its place on the National Registers of Historic Places by being the first county park to be opened for public use in the United States. Today, the park at nearly 4 miles long and almost 360 acres offers a large lake, meandering streams, a greenhouse, a butterfly garden at Monarch Meadow, a roller rink and the famed “Cherry Blossom Lane.”
