Newark is a fascinating city - and with history, nature and swamp (yes - swamps!) around every corner, you will find plenty of things to do with kids!
If history is what you’re looking for, then you’re in the right place! Let the Hermitage House and Dey Mansion take kids back to the 1700s (George Washington even stayed at both places - pretty amazing!).
A fascinating look into how people used to live in the past, and a great introduction to the Revolution! If it’s art and culture that you want to spend the day exploring, then Newark has that too! Hunterdon Museum of Art and Montclair Art Museum are great places for kids to be introduced to the art world!
Those creative kids will love the Newark Museum where they can really express their creativity. And that swamp?
The Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge gets kids out into the beautiful nature and protected wildlife - and only a short drive from Newark!
You won’t be short of things to do with kids in the urban heart of New Jersey!
