If you’re looking to experience award-winning cuisine, diverse culture, and an exciting vibe the whole family can appreciate, it’s time to visit Hudson County. Located only 4.7 miles from the heart of Manhattan, Hudson County is the fastest growing area in New Jersey…and for good reason.

While we may be the smallest county — we like to think of ourselves as the greatest. We are one of the most walkable cities in the country and boast spectacular views of the NYC skyline. We are also home to a staggering array of award-winning restaurants, cafés and bistros. From top-notch steakhouses and seafood restaurants to the local neighbourhood flavour of ethnic cuisines found in cafes and bistros along tree-lined streets, there is truly something to please every palate. You can even sample tasty treats at Carlo’s Bakery — home of the Cake Boss.

There’s also plenty to see and do in Hudson County. Spend the day visiting Frank Sinatra’s Birthplace, enjoying a ferry ride to the Statue of Liberty, and exploring Liberty State Park’s 1,200 green acres. In addition, there’s lots of opportunity for adventure, whether that means a round of golf, kayaking on the Hudson River, or taking in one of the lively street fairs or annual events.

With phenomenal Manhattan skyline views and all the attractions of Manhattan a stone’s throw away, Hudson County’s location cannot be beat. Find out more at visithudson.org.
