How To Keep Entertained In Jersey City

Aug 10, 2008
Jersey City, New Jersey is a wonderful tourist attraction for those passing through or looking to stay. With almost a quarter million people running the streets on a daily basis, there is a lot to interact with and do in this hustling and bustling city.

Getting around the big city will usually be easy, since city officials recognize the need for public transportation before it becomes too much of a problem. Public bus routes are available at low rates, as well as rail systems that interconnect the city with different neighborhoods. Airports and rental cars are also quite plentiful, and should be taken advantage of.

Before one leaves the area of Jersey City they should consider visiting two very big landmarks in Amercian history: the Statue of Liberty and Ellis island. Both landmarks are open for tourist viewing year round, and are very close to the Jersey City shore. Both make for wonderful picture opportunities to share with family members back home.

A tourist attraction that is soon to be dismantled is the Colgate Clock. The Colgate Clock has long been revered as the world's largest clock, but Colgate has left Jersey City and only an abandoned lot remains around the Colgate Clock. Talks have been made to see if it can be moved, and plans will likely commence to move the clock to make room for other businesses and opportunities.

Jersey City is especially friendly to females, who just love to shop. There are a total of ten different shopping districts to visit in Jersey City- each with their own style and different shops and goods. Jersey City commonly brags that their sales tax is only 3.5%, compared to the 8% or more that other states and locations abide by. As such, Jersey City is considered a hot shopping location for tourists.

There are also a few parks that will enable tourists to relax and take in the sights. Liberty State park, Leonard Gordon park, and Hudson River Waterfront Walkway each have their own distinct styles in relaxation and entertainment. Those who are familiar with the Statue of Liberty probably already know about Liberty State Park- which is situated near the landmark in question. All three are considered to be a must-see for any tourists in the area who might be passing through.

Closing Comments

New Jersey itself is a great place to visit, but Jersey City should be on the front of the list of places to visit if a traveler is making their way through. Be sure to visit the parks, shopping districts, and the Statue of Liberty before leaving!
