I'm going to be in Newark (New Jersey) next month and will be on a pretty tight budget. I'm looking for the best free and inexpensive things to check out! I love the outdoors, art, museums, you name it. Thanks!
You can't beat the arts in Newark! The Newark Museum is world-class, and galleries such as Aferro and Aljira are fabulous. Take a glassblowing class at GlassRoots, visit the beautiful Branch Brook Park, take in a show at NJPAC. Take a train down to the Jersey Shore or hop over to NYC. Newark is a great place to visit! https://newarkarts.org/galleries/
Newark Museum isn't free but it's a wonderful museum that you probably won't go to otherwise- best Tibetan collection in US and good collection of 19th and 20th Century American art. The Newark Public Library is nearby and it is a nice building.Sacred Heart Cathedral is pretty.Outdoors-Branch Brook Park.
