Things to do

The perfect place to pair with the soundtrack to 'Hamilton'

As New Jersey's Colonial Era capital city, there's much history to be found in Elizabeth. Pay a visit to Boxwood Hall, the former capital building, built in 1750. Though the mansion once hosted George Washington, the Marquis de Lafayette, and yes, everyone's fave Founding Father, Alexander Hamilton, today it operates as a Colonial Era and Revolutionary War museum. The nearby First Presbyterian Church also features a Revolutionary War cemetery, or you can drive just across Jersey City and visit Ellis Island, Liberty Island, and the Statue of Liberty.


A shopping hotspot tucked away from the crowds

Instead of battling the 5th Ave crowds, head to Jersey Gardens Mall, New Jersey's largest outlet mall. Elizabeth is also known for being an exceptionally green city, with almost 50 parks, where you'll find bike paths, ball fields, hiking trails, boat rentals, ice rinks, and splash pads. The city also plays host to a variety of festivals, from its waterfront Memorial Day celebration to its Tour de Elizabeth cycling event. Keep this in mind when browsing Elizabeth vacation rentals, and see if your visit lines up with an extra dose of local fun.


Festive fun is found through all 4 seasons

Elizabeth celebrates all 4 seasons, with late spring and early fall being the most pleasant time to spend outdoors. Winters throughout the region can be harsh and cold, with plenty of snowfall likely from January through early March. Summers, on the other hand, are hot, humid, and sticky, so keeping close to the water will be your best bet. Autumn brings with it some gray and rainy days, but the vibrant foliage more than makes up for it. If you're looking at Elizabeth vacation rentals over any holidays or major sporting events in the area, keep in mind that prices may spike.

Natural features

Elizabeth most certainly looks best in green

Though Elizabeth is situated just south of the concrete jungle of Newark and a hop, skip, and a jump from New York City, the town itself is surprisingly full of green space. Check out the Elizabeth vacation rentals that call any of the nearly 50 parks in the city their backyard. Many parks boast hiking and cycling trails, treelined paths, and sport courts. If water-based fun is what you're after, the Elizabeth River Parkway flows through Mattano Park, while Warinanco Park features a small lake. There's also plenty of waterfront along Newark Bay, overlooking neighboring Staten Island.
