Jersey City is at its busiest and best from spring until autumn. This is the peak of warm weather activities, the city buzzing with tourists but not becoming overcrowded and when the climate is at its most steady. It is always worth considering this part of the world in the winter for a good chance of New York-style snow but for most, summertime will be your best option.
The city is full of incredible things to do and one of those is to take a picturesque walk along the Hudson waterfront. On a clear day, you can see everything from the Verrazano Narrows Bridge all the way to Midtown Manhattan. This waterfront is one of the most popular locations to photograph the island of Manhattan. Another great thing to do in Jersey City is to catch a ferry to the Statue of Liberty or Ellis Island. Both of these places are big tourist spots and for very good reason. If you get a chance, Jersey City also offers the opportunity to visit the biggest planetarium in the Western Hemisphere in the Liberty Science Center.
Because this part of New Jersey is visited by so many New York City tourists looking for a budget stay, the area is filled with affordable but excellent quality accommodation choices. Motels and cheap hotels are the primary stays in the region but don’t be fooled by the prices, as the accommodations along the waterfront are the safest and best-value in the region. Jersey City has a wide variety of restaurants and dining options to choose from. Anything from swanky restaurants with Manhattan views to family-run Indian, Cuban and Mexican venues are available plus much, much more.
