New York City's sixth borough (almost, anyway)

On the west bank of the Hudson River, right across from bustling New York City, lively and ethnically diverse Jersey City has come into its own, and rivals some of the most popular neighborhoods of its more famous sister city as the place many New Yorkers want to live. From the Statue of Liberty to professional football games, most of the area's top attractions are close by. A Jersey City vacation rental puts you near elegant Victorian mansions, historic brownstones, and glittering high-rises. It's emergence as a banking and finance center has earned it the nickname Wall Street West.

Things to do

You can't go wrong with Lady Liberty on your side

Be sure to pack your camera when you head to your Jersey City vacation rental, because you'll be on the doorstep of some of the most famous attractions in the world. Directly from Liberty State Park, you can catch a ferry to the Statue of Liberty and historic Ellis Island. Before you leave the park, be sure to check out the "Empty Sky" 9/11 Memorial and the interactive Liberty Science Center museum. Sports fans can catch a professional football game at MetLife Stadium, just 10 minutes away. Of course, everything New York City has to offer is just across the river.
