Why Visit Newark
You might know Newark as the home of one of New York City’s major international airports, but there’s a lot more to this city than meets the eye. With a culturally diverse population and a Performing Arts Center that hosts some of the best festivals in the country, there are plenty of gems to be found when you visit Newark.
When to Visit Newark
Newark is relatively unknown as a tourist destination, which means it's never too crowded at any given time of the year. However, it’s important to note that some areas of Newark have a reputation for high crime rates, and walking around alone at night is not recommended. The safest areas are closest to the center of the city.
Like the weather in New York City, the weather in Newark isn't always perfect. It's best to visit during the milder seasons from late April until October, when it won't be too cold to walk around. Because Newark is a city on the water, it can be very cold and windy during the cooler months, so remember to pack a jacket.
