Like its most popular sights and harbour views, Jersey City hotels are easy to find in and around Historic Downtown. If you do plan to venture further north into the five boroughs, book New York City accommodation, so you can at least try to get some shut-eye in the “City That Never Sleeps.”
With its prime location for seafarers, Jersey City was once the first stop on many people’s migration to the United States. Today you can take the ferry out to tour Ellis Island Immigrant Hospital, a public health hospital used as a quarantine station beginning in 1902. From Ellis Island, look to the south to see the Statue of Liberty waving to the Staten Island Ferry as it floats by. Pause for a moment of reflection in Liberty State Park, or learn a thing or two at Liberty Science Centre. If you’re craving Italian food, head for The Heights, northwest of downtown. With all the delicious options, you’ll have to kick back in your Jersey City hotel with a belly full of cannoli. Then get ready to start again the next day.
Touch down at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), about 8 km southwest of Jersey City. You can get around easily with public buses or one of Wotif’s car hire options.
