    History meets high-rises in Jersey City

    Sitting across the mighty Hudson River from its attention-grabbing cousin New York City, Jersey City has blossomed in recent decades to become an alluring destination in its own right. The ever-evolving waterfront, with its photogenic high-rise skyline, lives up to its local nickname ‘Wall Street West’. In stark contrast, the Historic Downtown is characterized by rows of beautifully restored brownstones, whilst The Heights is home to some of the best-preserved Victorian mansions you’ll find anywhere in the country. Once you’ve made yourself at home in your Jersey City vacation rental, you’ll find an array of attractions on your doorstep, from the sprawling Liberty State Park to the state-of-the-art Liberty Science Center.

    Riverfront strolls and a world of fine food

    If the weather’s fine, nothing beats a leisurely stroll along the Hudson River waterfront, from which you can take in views of the glittering Manhattan skyline. You can also easily hop on a ferry and enjoy a scenic trip to Ellis Island and the iconic Statue of Liberty. After a day’s sightseeing, take a pit stop at your centrally located Jersey City vacation rental, before heading out to sample the spectacular local food scene. A whole world of culinary excellence awaits, with everything from authentic, wallet-friendly South Indian eateries to extravagant gourmet restaurants on offer.

    Picturesque parks and lavish interiors

    Beloved by locals and vacationers alike, Liberty State Park is roughly as big as New York’s world-renowned Central Park, but far less developed and crowded. It’s the perfect spot for a summer family picnic, a brisk walk to admire the vibrant fall foliage, or a spot of winter ice skating. Within the park, you’ll also find the Liberty Science Center, where you can explore interactive exhibitions, or marvel at a movie projected onto a colossal IMAX screen. For a taste of the Jersey City of yesteryear, check out the Justice William Brennan Courthouse, a spectacular Beaux-Arts building replete with colorful murals and a stained-glass dome.

    A city of seasonal diversity

    Jersey City has 4 distinct seasons. The most popular time to visit is summer, when days are long, with plenty of warm sunshine. Locals take full advantage of this, with a packed program of open-air festivals, concerts, and food fairs. Fall sees the weather turn crisp, as the leaves turn golden. Winters can get very chilly, with plenty of frost and snow, whilst spring days are fresh and changeable. Whenever you choose to visit, be sure to pack a rain mac or umbrella, as rainfall can come at any time of the year.

    Wild wetlands within easy reach

    Despite being a resolutely urban destination, Jersey City’s picturesque waterfront setting lends it a tranquil, laid-back atmosphere, particularly when compared to the frenetic pace of New York City. There’s also an abundance of parks and green spaces where you can unwind and re-connect with nature. Within easy driving distance of your Jersey City vacation rental you’ll find a host of spectacular natural attractions, like the thundering Passaic River Great Falls and the idyllic Troy Meadows, an expansive freshwater marsh that’s home to all manner of rare flora and fauna.
