Weehawken

Weehawken sits atop the Palisades on the Hudson River and offers magnificent views of the Manhattan skyline. History and famous Broadway musical buffs take note: Alexander Hamilton lost his life in his famous duel with Aaron Burr in Weehawken along the Palisades. Today you can visit his memorial high above the cliffs of this township, and even see the boulder where he may have rested before he died. If spectacular views of Manhattan are your thing, there’s no better place than Weehawken’s location high on the palisades overlooking the Hudson River. Cycle the Hudson Loop and explore the small, close-knit neighborhoods and savor the flavors at one of the Cuban and Central American restaurants during your stay.
