Jersey City Travel Guide
Welcome to Jersey City, NJ!
With such a close proximity to New York City, just west of Manhattan across the Hudson River, Jersey City can be an ideal starting point for a vacation to the Big Apple. However, if choosing a hotel in Jersey City, then there are some sights here that are definitely a must see. Popular parks in the area include Washington Rock State Park and Liberty State Park, which covers over 1,000 acres and features abundant recreational activities, such as walking, horseback riding and boating. The Liberation Monument and Liberty Walkway are also located in this park as well as the Liberty Science Center. The Colgate Clock is a unique and large attraction, which faces the bay and the 2, 200-pound minute hand moves 23 inches every minute. Also, the Liberty Landing Marina offers over 200 berths, a travel lift and a sailing school. Visitors can also enjoy ferry rides from Liberty Landing to Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan.
Established in 1924, this octagonal clock is one of Jersey City's landmarks, inspired from Colgate's Octagon Soap.
