  • Newark, New Jersey is a short drive to many other states including New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. If you rent a car, you’ll be able to see so much more while on vacation.

Therefore, an SUV might be best to get you through the snowy conditions. Other times of the year, a smart or compact car might be best when visiting Newark because of parking limitations. Simply put, a smaller car can more easily fit into a tight parking spot on the street.

  • The speed limit is 65 mph on both the Garden State Parkway and the NJ Turnpike. However, if you are traveling through residential neighborhoods, New Jersey law requires that you slow down to 25-35 mph, depending upon the zoning. Around the downtown area the speed limit is 30 mph. Watch for signs to avoid getting a speeding ticket.

  • Fuel prices in Newark, NJ range from 2.40 euros ($2.70) for regular gasoline to 2.90 euros ($3.30) per gallon for premium gas. This is slightly higher than the national average partially due to the increase in the New Jersey gas tax. During Christmas and other holidays gas prices tend to rise.

  • Because downtown Newark can be so busy, parking can be difficult to find. If you know when you are going to be in the area, you can reserve your space in a parking garage or lot ahead of time. This can be done through a variety of mobile apps like SpotHero or Parking Panda.
