    Newark is off-the-beaten-track New York

    Although a hop over the Hudson and cross of a state border is required to get from the heart of the Big Apple to Newark, the largest metro area in the Garden State shares a lot with its big brother to the west. For starters, it's got world-class art museums, and soaring high-rises that look like a fusion of Art Deco 1920s and the future. It's also got multicultural districts of sizzling Portuguese cookhouses, cool alehouses, and jazz bars. What's more, Newark vacation rentals come in the form of uber-stylish duplexes or high-flying penthouses with views to keep you gasping.

    Get a fix of culture in Newark

    If you're looking to understand the unique Portuguese-Brazilian heritage of the city, then it might be worth searching for Newark vacation rentals in the heart of the immersive Ironbound district. There, walking tours of the European cafés and churches down Ferry Street are a must. You can also party the nights away during the Portugal Day Festival and Brazilian Festival in June and September respectively, or simply hit the local jazz bars for a bout of NY-style blues any time of the year.

    Newark offers galleries and art spots

    Culture and art ooze from every block of downtown Newark, with the likes of the Newark Museum – get ready for Asian calligraphy next to modern American masterworks – rubbing shoulders with the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. There's also more curious places, like the City Without Walls, where emerging local artists are the subject of the changing exhibits. Sightseeing in Newark is at its best in Military Park, while the iconic Ironbound District is amongst the most enthralling in America – think Brazilian cantinas and Lisbon-style cafés serving custard tarts and coffees.

    Newark is a year-rounder

    Thanks to its wealth of cultural hotspots, art galleries, and parks, Newark promises to be an enthralling destination no matter what time of year you choose to visit. You'll get something different in the winter though, when the town is often snowy and cold between December and February. Then, it's all about experiencing underground speakeasies and dining. The summer months between June and August are totally different, offering ethnic festivals, street parades, and the best weather for sightseeing through the parks.

    Newark is the gateway to the Garden State

    East from Newark is the great metropolis of the Big Apple, while to the west is the Garden State, and all the reserves and state parks that go with it. Head that way from your Newark vacation rentals and you'll find the wild woodlands, the wide reservoirs, and the babbling waterfalls of the South Mountain Reservation. Birders will want to push on further to the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge though, where boardwalks offer views of sprawling wetland habitats and hills.
