Hoboken, NJ, is as close as Jersey comes to getting on NYC’s level. The waterfront city is best known for its bar scene, and it’s a short PATH train ride to get there for cheaper-than-NYC beer bars. But that’s only the start of the cool things to do in Hoboken—get there earlier than happy hour to hit up the best Hoboken restaurants. There are also tons of affordable apartments that don’t have those high city prices and some of the best festivals in NJ, including the annual week-long Hoboken Comedy Festival.
