Things To Do in Newark, NJ
When spring is in the air, the West Orange Street Fair fills downtown West Orange with more than 100 artists, vendors and performers. This smaller suburban town, only 15 minutes away from Newark, is typically quiet, but the crowds come out for this festival. Walk down the streets and enjoy fabulous food, live music and entertainment for all ages.
Housed in the oldest and longest continuously operated synagogue in the city, the Jewish Museum of New Jersey represents what was once the sixth largest Jewish community in the US. Inside this museum, you will find a large collection of historic manuscripts, art, clothing, tools and various other artifacts.
It’s hard to miss the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart as you explore downtown Newark. This French Gothic-styled cathedral features more than 200 stained glass windows and 14 giant bells imported from Italy. The fourth largest of its kind in North America, this cathedral is not only a beautiful architectural attraction but also a performance venue for several choirs and symphonies.
