Greater Newark Area
The Greater Newark region is a happening place (for a fraction of the price of New York City). Visit Newark, the Garden State’s largest metropolis, just 8 short miles from Manhattan. You’ll find big apple style action in smaller more intimate bites. From America’s first and oldest public park to one of the country’s largest performing arts venues, the state’s biggest museum to the continent’s 5th largest cathedral: pro sports, fine arts, urban retail and outdoor adventure, its all happening here. Shop till you drop at the largest premium outlet mall in the state.
Newark isn't just a happening place. It's also a place for higher education and there are many colleges and universities that call Newark home. As a result there are a ton of college students in and around town. Make some friends, join a hackathon, or head out on a bar crawl...there's a ton to do when you're not hitting the books. Aced an exam? Celebrations get wild at the Rock. Tired of studying...reinvigorate yourself with a performance at NJPAC. Consider us your test prep, and get cracking on all that's happening.
Live. Learn. Love. Shop. Rock. Sports. Arts. Eats. Events. Adventure.
The greater Newark region offers a front row seat and easy access to all that’s happening!
