Destination guide

Discover Paterson's cultural panache

Silk mills and roaring waterfalls, historic industrial depots and one of the most diverse populations in the whole of the United States, all add up to make this small city a great place to base your vacation in The Garden State. Walkable and laden with charming Paterson vacation rentals, it draws visitors with inner-city state parks and some buzzing Arabic bazaars that come packed with falafel, hummus, and shisha. But this isn't the Middle East – you're still only 30 minutes to Jersey City and the great Hudson River…

Things to do

Wonder at Paterson's industrial past

Perhaps you've been lucky enough to bag one of the elegant Victorian townhouses or Paterson vacation rentals that pepper the designated Eastside Park Historic District, which all showcase the majestic architecture that once made this place such a looker in the 19th and 20th centuries? If so, be sure to wander the streets there before breaking out to see the striking Great Falls Historic District. Those crashing waterfalls carve through the town, giving way to the Paterson Museum and the Rogers Locomotive Works, which both chronicle the industrial past of New Jersey's co-called Silk City.


Sights and shopping in Paterson

As one of the most multicultural cities in the United States, Paterson is a melting pot of people and creeds. One result is the throbbing markets and bazaars that pop up on the south side, where maestros of the Middle Eastern kitchen tout falafel, sesame pastes, and mezze. Once you're done tasting your way through that, there are plenty of pretty parks to explore and picnic in, not to mention the charming architectural wonders of Paterson's former industrial golden age.


Hit Paterson in the summer

Because all of Paterson's main attractions are located out in the open, it's always better to plan your vacation here for the summertime. Search for Paterson vacation rentals between June and July to be in with a chance of long, dry days that are great for wondering at the city's waterfalls and gawping at the elegant Victorian mansions of the East Side. Summer is also the top time to hop into Jersey City, where you'll find the parks on the Hudson buzzing with life.

Natural features

Waterfalls and winding rivers near Paterson

Paterson's whole geography is defined by the winding Passaic River, which bends this way and that through the city's streets before crashing over a steep bluff between the historic silk mills. It's now a designated park, and offers good lookouts over the town. There are other woodlands in the Garrett Mountain Reservation, which also has walking trails and aging castles, while the High Mountain Reserve to the north of the city makes the most of New Jersey's rising hills to offer panoramas of the Big Apple from its wooded peaks.
