Many of Newark’s key attractions are located within easy driving distance of Montclair, so it is a popular place to stay or visit on a day trip. Two attractions that should top every visitor’s to-do list is the fascinating Montclair Art Museum and the much-loved Wellmont Theatre. Two other interesting attractions that are located within a short distance of Montclair are the Montclair Golf Club and the Presby Memorial Iris Gardens.
There are a number of natural gifts here as well, so make sure you enjoy the chance to get outdoors. De-stress at the Eagle Rock Reservation in West Orange.
A great way to experience the natural environs is to head for the greens at the area’s popular golf courses like the Essex County Country Club in West Orange and the Crestmont Country Club.
To cheer on the local sporting greats, get tickets to see a Newark Bears, Rutgers-Newark or New Jersey Institute of Technology match at the iconic Bears and Eagles Riverfront Stadium. On game days, the area around the stadium becomes flooded with proud fans wearing navy blue and white, the colors of local legends the Newark Bears.
After spending the day exploring the delights of Montclair, get a good nights sleep at one of the area’s bed-and-breakfasts, hotels or short-stay apartments. Whether you’re staying for a night or a few weeks check out the amenities at the Wilshire Grand Hotel, West Orange, the Howard Johnson Inn Clifton, and the Courtyard by Marriott West Orange.
