Newark is certainly one of the most unexpected locales to be considered a “travel paradise” destination. It has one of the nation’s largest airport, Newark Liberty International Airport. Perhaps more evident to the casual observer is the mass exodus of creative, entrepreneurs and cultural enthusiasts who have taken flight from the surrounding suburbs and metropolitan areas to become a part of Newark-a city whose beauty has remained hidden to the unfamiliar and uncurious eye.
One might consider understanding the rich history this city has to tell, dating back centuries ago. Newark Museum has rolled out its “Newark stories” exhibition chronicling four Newarkers ‘ contributions to the city, for more contemporary offerings one can visit galleries like City without Walls(locally known as cWOW), Gateway Project Sources and Gallery Aferro. In summer months make a point to stop by the Lincoln Park Music Festival for three days of Jazz, gospel, house music and Hip hop. To celebrate the arrival of spring, the annual Cherry Blossom Festival takes place in Branch brook park, each year visitors come from distant lands to take part in the blooming of the fragrant and picturesque blossoms.
When it comes to “what to eat & drink” and where to “stay & shop” not being specific and taking your chances would be something you might want to consider, although you have some immense pre-documented information on internet which can help filter your options according to your convenience.
