Labor Day Weekend in Jersey City


Labor Day is the unofficial “end of summer” and if you’re staying in Jersey City instead of hitting the beach, we have two activities that are sure to end your summer on a great note!


Liberty State Park –Liberty State Park is a green oasis in our very own Jersey City. With the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island as a spectacular backdrop, Liberty State Park is one of the state’s most dramatic parks.  Grab some friends and enjoy a picnic or a BBQ and enjoy the beautiful views and fresh air!  If you have a larger group that wants to have a BBQ,  there are seven open-air, group picnic areas available for reservation. Each are equipped with eight picnic tables and one large, charcoal grill. There is no fee for the use of a group picnic area; however, a permit must be obtained prior to use.


William Wall – There are still some tickets available to board the William Wall boat on August 31st which is anchored in the middle of the Hudson River.  This is a hidden gem in Jersey City and is the perfect activity for Labor Day weekend! The boat has a full bar and you can bring your own food.  Your ticket covers a round-trip on their Admiral’s Launch water taxi from the Manhattan Yacht Club in Jersey City to the Honorable William Wall and back.  On your way back you’ll get dropped off at Surf City, where you can end the night with a few more drinks.
