The largest city in New Jersey and the second-biggest in the New York metro area, Newark has undergone an artistic and cultural renaissance in recent decades. A major international airport and shipping port, several institutions of higher learning, including two Rutgers campuses and the New Jersey Institute of Technology, and the headquarters of Prudential Financial, Panasonic, and PSEG all call Newark home, making it one of the busiest areas in the Garden State. With a melting pot of nationalities represented across the city's five distinct wards, Newark (which is Essex County's urban center) never fails to stimulate its residents with a diverse, urban landscape. Sitting just 8 miles west of Manhattan, Newark allows its residents to easily commute to one of the world's most cosmopolitan destinations, which is just a short drive or train ride away.

Don't leave without trying one of the restaurant's flavored lassi drinks or sweet parathas.

On Halsey Street, you can find The Harvest Table. Locals enjoy this casual eatery for its' fresh, healthy menu and refreshing, nutrient-packed smoothies. Create your own smoothie, salad or sandwich with any ingredients you like, or choose from one of its numerous menu options.

Fill up on a healthy lunch on your work break or before a day of shopping. The Harvest Table's menu includes favorites such as the High Thai'd salad, made with shrimp, roasted red peppers, cucumbers, grilled pineapple and Asian sesame-ginger dressing and the Classico panini, prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, roasted peppers and basil pesto sandwiched between grilled multi-grain flatbread.

Let Don Pepe Restaurant transport you to Spain for a night with a traditional menu that features fresh seafood, steaks and fruity sangria.

Share tapas such as garlic shrimp, stuffed scallops, Spanish cheeses and chorizo. Choose between entrees such as stuffed lobster, paella, shrimp in salsa verde and aged prime steaks. Save room for Port wine-poached pears or homemade caramel-topped flan for dessert, and sip after-dinner cordials or Don Pepe Coffee, Kahlua and brandy-spiked espresso beneath a generous pile of whipped cream.

Nightlife options prove plentiful in Downtown Newark. Catch a show or sports game, dance the night away, visit a hookah bar or have a drink with friends at one of the many bars and pubs.

The menu includes everything from classic dirty martinis to dessert martinis, such as the Tiramisu or Key Lime Pie.

Enjoy Wednesdays at Washington Park, an annual summer event that hosts an open-air market and all-day activities. Buy homemade goods, fresh produce and local artwork, and listen to live music.

The six-acre Military Park, once a training ground for soldiers, became the town commons in 1869. It has since established itself as an active community center by hosting cultural events, kid-friendly activities, music and daily programs designed to provide a creative gathering space for residents. The highly active park participates in several programs, including games, fitness programs and family entertainment events. Play board games such as chess and checkers each day. Listen to live music or line dance. Whole families enjoy this park together with family yoga, children's story time, cooking demos and crafting tutorials. Fitness enthusiasts love the park's outdoor classes, including Zumba, yoga, t'ai chi and capoeira. The park's annual event, the Africa-Newark Festival, celebrates African culture.

While Newark lacks a dog park, residents take advantage of other nearby Essex County parks that provide dog runs.
