This authentic and immersive Kearny excursion encompasses the best nature, scenery, and food you’ll find along the charming town’s main drag, Kearny Avenue.
Tiny Trip Highlights
Car or NJ Transit (train to Newark Broad St., bus to Belgrove Dr.)—although a car or bike for transport between spots will be handy
Experience the best quaint Kearny has to offer with a half-day Tiny Trip full of food and fun. Start with a stop at the hip Natas & Bowls café to grab some coffee or pastries ahead of your jaunt through West Hudson Park (1.5 miles away). Natas & Bowls’ delights run the gamut, but their fresh and local-favorite Portuguese pasteis de nata are hard to pass up.
With pastries and java in hand, it’s time to explore Kearny’s greenest attraction: West Hudson Park. This 46-acre urban oasis has everything from tennis courts and soccer fields to charming gazebos and a serene Fairy Lake. Don’t miss the photogenic bridges on your stop, too.
After a light snack and park stroll, it’s time for the main attraction: your meal! Oh! Calamares blends Latin American flavors with a welcoming atmosphere—not to mention beloved craft cocktails that are sure to impress. Seafood lovers will definitely be in heaven here, although carnivores will undoubtedly find their share of bites.
If you have time—and room in your stomach!—head to the trendy Lincredibowl, where bubble tea and sweet drinks are the perfect end to your Kearny trip.
