With priceless views of the Manhattan skyline, Hoboken’s Washington Street is a vibrant downtown area that 20 years ago could have never been imagined. For those commuting into the city for work, it’s a breeze and when they return home to Hoboken, they can enjoy infinite top dining choices. During the warmer months, you can catch a movie in the park or dine at an outdoor café.

Downtown Historic Jersey City seems to be the place to be these days. With the happy hour culture of Millennials flocking in high numbers to rent apartments in Jersey City, the downtown area right off the Grove Street Path Station has changed dramatically. There are restaurants, bars, dance clubs, and more. During the day walk your dog along the streets and catch a farmer’s market or street fair where local businesses are booming with organic goods. You can also rent a bike and cycle over to Liberty State Park where you can see One World Trade Center, Ellis Island, and awe inspiring views of New York City.

Morristown, NJ

You can literally walk in George Washington’s footsteps when you experience downtown Morristown. President Washington had his headquarters set up in this popular New Jersey town during the Revolutionary War because of its wonderful location — right between New York and Philadelphia. During the town’s revitalization, people have run to get in on what is now a vibrant and sociable downtown area. There are restaurants galore. ‘Think Global, Eat Local’ (the slogan of the town’s former restaurant week) is exactly what you encounter in this diverse dining market.

Red Bank

In our opinion Red Bank is the New York City of the Jersey Shore — great nightlife, impressive dining, and plenty of entertainment. Let’s start with the Count Basie Theater: a 1,500-seat theater that sees stars such as Ringo Starr come through its doors each year. But before you catch a stellar performance, grab a bite at one of New Jersey’s arguably best restaurant, Birravino. Don’t skip desert! Mosey on over to Lil’ Cutie Pops for a sweet treat that is “cuter than a cupcake.”

Princeton, NJ

Those college students will have something to brag about besides their diploma — the amazing times that they had enjoying downtown Princeton. When strolling down the scenic tree-lined streets, you can take in the charming and historic buildings and then pop into one of the numerous restaurants for a great meal. Palmer Square is located directly across from the university where each season you can enjoy a different festival or holiday complimented with decorations.
