EDITOR PICKS: NORTHERN NEW JERSEY | How do you make the most of a visit to Northern New Jersey? According to @TSGNorthernNewjersey Editor/Owner Heather Cundey, “Liberty State Park in Jersey City is a wonderful place for tourists and locals to spend the day. The Liberty Science Center is home to the Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium, the biggest planetarium in the Western Hemisphere. Liberty Walk is two miles of stunning views of the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty, and Ellis Island. Ferry service to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island is available at the park. The Hudson River and New York Bay offer boating, canoeing, picnic areas, a playground, food concessions, a marina, and areas for fishing and crabbing. The park also provides trails for outdoor activities and is the site of spectacular Fourth of July fireworks. You should also spend an afternoon exploring the home of Thomas Edison, Glenmont. Spring is a particularly beautiful time with all of our cherry blossoms, Dogwood, and Magnolia trees in bloom.
Our downtowns have fabulous shopping and restaurants, including @shopno18, which is one of our favorite women’s boutiques. Visit @greathousenj by Bonny Neiman for the most fabulous art, antiques, new furniture, rugs, accessories, and gifts. In the quaint downtown of Madison, enjoy a phenomenal pilates class at @ClubPilatesMadison, grab a green smoothie at Jungle Juice, and shop at fabulous @Stitch.Boutique for a great selection of women’s apparel. For a more urban feel, visit Montclair. @TheGeorgeMontclair is a must-stay new boutique hotel in beautiful upper Montclair designed and owned by Bobbi Brown and her husband. The wonderful little village of Bedminster/Far Hills is home to @gotoPosh, a shop with fabulously curated antiques, art, and apparel. Head down the street to visit Butler’s of Far Hills to see their spectacular designer showroom, and top it off with an amazing custom workout at @TheStudioFarHills.” Find more ways to connect with Heather and @TSGNorthernNewJersey via the link in bio. #TSGNorthernNJ
