Jersey City — 6 nights

Jersey City is the second-most-populous city in the U.S. state of New Jersey, after Newark. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Liberty State Park and Downtown Jersey City, New Jersey - Waterfront 9/11 Memorial - #8. Change things up with these side-trips from Jersey City: Presby Iris Gardens (in Upper Montclair), Leonard J. Buck Garden (in Far Hills) and Van Vleck House & Gardens (in Montclair). There's lots more to do: pause for some photo ops at Empty Sky - 9/11 Memorial, get curious at Liberty Science Center, stroll around Prospect Park, and head outdoors with Outdoor Activities.

The Garden State
Often overshadowed by its legendary neighbor, New York, New Jersey holds its own as a land of thriving industrial cities, sprawling farmland, and lively coastal towns. Called the Garden State, New Jersey is a hub of entertainment and cultural attractions for the east coast, from the famous sandy beaches and carnival-like atmosphere of the Jersey Shore to alluring Atlantic City, the Las Vegas of the east. New Jersey also boasts a wealth of historical places to visit, including battle sites and memorials, such as George Washington's Revolutionary War headquarters.
