If you’re spending Memorial Day Weekend in Jersey City, there’s plenty to do! We put together a list of activities for the long weekend the are a great way to kick off summer. Hopefully you will get to explore parts of Jersey City you never have before.
Friday, May 27th you can purchase tickets to set sail on a MDW midnight cruise on the Hudson. This party boat has three floors, food, drinks, world-known DJ’s and indoor and outdoor space. What a wonderful way to start off the weekend. We wouldn’t be surprised if there was a Memorial Day firework show as well!
Did you know that Jersey City has their own beach? Newport Green is a great spot to spend the afternoon. The 4 acre park includes a sandy beach with umbrellas and chairs, open land for sports and a spectacular view of the New York City skyline.
Surf City will be opening their doors on May 13th. We have been waiting for them to re-open since the temperature started going up and restaurants were setting up their outdoor tables again. This is a neighborhood favorite and also offers beach chairs, umbrellas and sand! They have five bars and one is designated just for tropical drinks. How good does a Pina colada sound with your feet in the sand and breathtaking views of the city?
William Wall Clubhouse is a floating bar on the Hudson River. Most people think its members only; but the secret is out…it’s open to the public! Lucky for us, the only way to the boat is the Admiral’s Launch, a United States Coast Guard certified vintage motorboat from Liberty Harbor Marina, right here in Jersey City. The boat fits 40 comfortably and is $18.00 round trip and is not too far from Madox!
