1. Jersey City
The views don’t get better than the views in Jersey City. It’s no surprise that this is one of New Jersey’s prime destination cities, offering stunning walks along the Hudson River and a center that lights up at night. Make sure you walk enough to build up an appetite, because the foodie offerings here are second to none. Head up to Hoboken, and grab a spot of lunch there, or on a warm day, take a picnic to a pier-park and check out Liberty State Park. In the evening, have dinner and drinks in the Old Town at Newark Avenue.
