Living that posh suburban life in Bergen County

Hugging the western bank of the Hudson River across from New York City, Bergen County is one of the most densely populated in New Jersey and one of the wealthiest in the country. Home to some of New York and New Jersey's most popular professional teams, Bergen County is a sports fanatic's dream. In the shadow of one of the world's biggest cities, a Bergen County vacation rental is the epitome of upscale suburban living. From museums, to green spaces, to some of the best shopping in the region, there's something for everyone in Bergen County.

Plenty of fresh air a stone's throw from the city

For such a densely populated area, there's a surprising amount of green space. The dramatic cliffs of Palisades Interstate Park overhang the Hudson River and offer unbeatable views of Manhattan and the George Washington Bridge. For hiking, head to the Ramapo Mountains – the most intense climb will take you to the peak of Bald Mountain, where the scenery is stunning. There are plenty of public parks and golf courses to fill your days, and there's always a festival going on somewhere. A Bergen County vacation rental is ideal for shopaholics, thanks to the outlets of Paramus and several other malls in the area.

So many pro sporting events, so little time

Sports, sports, and more sports – Bergen County is a mecca for sports nuts. Glittering MetLife Stadium is home to both the Jets and Giants professional football teams, as well as concerts by some of the world's biggest artists. Hockey fans should head to the Izod Center, while horse racing enthusiasts will want to visit Meadowlands Racetrack. If you're more of a culture vulture, take in some top-notch dance and theater at the Bergen Performing Arts Center. Museum buffs will enjoy the New Jersey Naval Museum and the Aviation Hall of Fame & Museum of New Jersey. All the sights of Manhattan are just across the river.

There's a season for everything in Bergen County

No matter what your favorite season is, you can find it at a Bergen County vacation rental. Summers tend to be hot and humid, with highs in the 80s and 90s (or sometimes the triple digits) from June through August. Winters are the real deal, with plenty of snow and below-freezing temps from December to February, so be sure to bundle up before you head out. Spring has dramatic swings in weather, while fall tends to be cool and moderate. The stunning autumn foliage usually peaks in October.

Bergen County: New Jersey's real-life cliffhanger

On its eastern edge, Bergen County ends at the sharp cliffs of the Palisades that dramatically drop to the mighty Hudson River below. As you move west and inland, you find high concentrations of suburban homes sprinkled among public parks and gently rolling hills. At the county's northern border, where it butts up against the New Jersey/New York state line, the Ramapo Mountains break up the suburban landscape and offer beautiful panoramic views. For a city fix, it doesn't get more urban than New York City across the river.
