Just Touring Around
Spending your time like a local and visiting the places that give Hoboken and Newport their iconic Jersey feel doesn’t mean you don’t want to give in to your inner tourist some time to explore without having to go where it’s swarming with people.
- Hudson Riverfront Walkway
Iconic because of its views, the river walk is a must if your feeling like exploring but also a landmark for those who live on either side of the river.

- Chelsea Market
At the other side of the river not only will you find the Big Apple but you will also find the opportunity to try cuisines from all around the world at Chelsea Market. This is not only a great place to try new foods but if you find yourself at the mercy of the weather this is a great place to window shop and relax.
