Exploring Little Italy will be a piece of cake once you've organized your rental car. But before you land in a new place, it's always handy to have a little basic info about the area.
One of the coolest things about going on a road trip is that you get to know interesting new people. So while you're vacationing in Little Italy, why not journey out of town in your rental car and get to know a few of the other 8,175,100 folk who call New York their home?
If your trip to Little Italy is all sorted out but your travel itinerary is looking a little empty, let us give you a few hints and tips.
Leave that rental car in the hotel parking lot and use those legs. Not far from this neighborhood's center, Umberto's Clam House is worth a visit. More adventure awaits at Children's Museum of the Arts and Italian American Museum, which are also close by.
Journey to Dumbo, an interesting close-by area. There are loads of things to do here. Dumbo is about 1 mile from Little Italy.
There's nothing quite as nice as opening the car window and feeling the fresh, salty air on your face while you're driving along the coast. Pack some food and spend a day enjoying the sun at one of the beautiful beaches near Little Italy. Well-loved options include:
If you're traveling to Little Italy for work-related purposes, you'll probably be visiting some business and convention centers. With your own rental car, you're sure to arrive on time. Here are some of the most well known:
City driving or cruising the open roads? With Little Italy only 2 miles from central Jersey City, you'll probably do both. A clever option for either situation is a standard-sized vehicle. You'll be able to easily navigate the city's narrow streets and find parking spots, while that extra space will give you more comfort and flexibility. With a slightly bigger car, don't be scared to clock up some miles and head out on a road trip!
You'll be glad to hear that there's a great range of luxury rental vehicles available in Little Italy. What you end up going for will depend on how much you want to spend as well as what you plan to do. Prestige vehicles are hard to beat if you're all about mod cons and comfort. If you're splashing out, why not go for an SUV with all the bells and whistles, or perhaps a cushy mid-sized vehicle? On the other hand, if you're just after something to whiz around town in at the cheapest price possible, stick with an economy compact vehicle (or something else that won't burn a hole in your wallet).
