Live with action, the Gateway Region has everything for your perfect vacation.
Start with historic sites. You'll discover a pre-Revolution house that's now the home of Indian artifacts and colonial toys. During the Revolution, Washington's troops marched through the Gateway area, and you can follow their footsteps down the road to independence as you wander through towns filled with museums. Visit Thomas A. Edison's home and laboratories, where you will see some of his greatest inventions. Stop by a museum solely dedicated to the history of flight. Known as one of the cultural capitals of the United States, the Gateway is the home of people from all over the world, whose cultures mingle to produce a rich fabric of life. Here, you'll find theater, dance and the best in classical music. Included are our state theater, the Paper Mill Playhouse.
In a region full of natural beauty, you'll see the jagged cliffs of the Palisades looming 530 feet above the Hudson River. Enjoy the Great Falls of Paterson, where the roar of the water plunging 70 feet into its stone chasm can be heard several city blocks away.
Diversity characterizes the many playtime activities you'll find in the Gateway, plus you are minutes away from New York City. It also houses the Meadowland Complex with its colorful tapestry of sports and entertainment. Restaurants of all types for all tastes, extensive shopping centers with the best of everything, and activities for children of all ages round out a vivid, exciting region. This is truly a gateway to many vacation alternatives. That's who, when people experience all the Gateway has to offer, they keep coming back for more.
