Wayne, New Jersey: Charming Township 20 Miles from the Big Apple
Wayne is within easy reach of the big city—it’s just 20 miles from Midtown Manhattan—but it has small-town charm in droves. Its numerous lakes offer ample opportunities for swimming, fishing, or boating in warmer months, and a handful of golf courses invite visitors to while away summer days on the greens. If you’re looking to do some shopping, head to Willowbrook Mall. The two-story shopping complex has more than 100 stores as well as numerous restaurants and a 14-screen movie theater.
Midtown Manhattan is a quick 40-minute drive from here (you can also park in Hoboken and take the ferry). The neighborhood is known for some of New York’s most famous landmarks, including Rockefeller Center—home to the iconic outdoor ice-skating rink, the Today show, and Saturday Night Live—and Grand Central Terminal, the world’s sixth-most-visited tourist attraction. Though in recent years Grand Central has filled with upscale restaurants and shops, it still serves as a major transportation hub with subway lines, Metro trains, and ziplines heading all over the city.
