Three Places to Learn Something New in Jersey City & Hoboken

You might be wondering how to say goodbye to summer and enjoy the weekends in Jersey City. The quick answer? Just relax. You’ve worked hard and deserve a break, but we get it—a break means rest for some and adventure time for others. If you feel the itch to get out and explore, here are 3 enjoyable weekend activities in and around Jersey City:

Riverview Farmers Market

Hand select fresh produce to compliment your last outdoor BBQ’s or simply enjoy the live music—Riverview Farmers Market is the perfect low-key place to hang out and get involved in the community. Experience it all this Sunday from 10am to 3pm at Riverview-Fisk Park, 1 Bowers Street, Jersey City.

Liberty Science Center

Escape the weekend routine at Liberty Science Center. Take it easy by strolling through educational exhibits such as Honey Bees: Home is Where the Hive Is and Energy Quest. Then, settle in to an immersive IMAX film, namely A Beautiful Planet or National Parks Adventure. Visit Liberty Science Center’s website for more information on exhibits, pricing and directions.

Newport Green Park

Did you know there’s a beach in Jersey City? Sure, technically it’s a contained manmade sand beach, but with plenty of space to spread out and stunning views of the Manhattan skyline, Newport Green Park is the place to spend a warm weather weekend. For those with kids, the spacious playground and carousel are popular, but there’s fun for adults too with an onsite ping pong table. Pack for a picnic and call it a day in Newport Green Park at Washington Boulevard and 14th Street.
