Jersey City is the second-most-populous city in the U.S. For shopping fun, head to Woodbury Common Premium Outlets or Words Bookstore. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Jersey City: Princeton (Princeton University & Princeton University Art Museum) and Washington Crossing Historic Park (in Washington Crossing). And it doesn't end there: take in the pleasant sights at Hoboken Waterfront Walkway, stroll around J. Owen Grundy Park, admire the majestic nature at Liberty State Park, and don't miss a visit to Downtown Jersey City, New Jersey - Waterfront 9/11 Memorial - #8.

For other places to visit, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Jersey City online route planner .

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Head to Fifth Avenue and Chelsea Marketfor plenty of shopping. There's still lots to do: go for a walk through Central Park, pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, admire the landmark architecture of Empire State Building, and make a trip to The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
