Vibe and thrive in Jersey City

New York City’s neighbor, Jersey City has its own host of sights, activities, and experiences to offer. At Liberty State Park, you can see the Statue of Liberty and historic Ellis Island, or even take a cruise for closer views.

Downtown, head to Jersey City’s historic Grove Street for culinary treats. When you’re finished, take a drive along the Hudson for breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline.

Jersey City favorites

View the iconic Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, then see what else the city has to offer.

Statue of Liberty

Jersey City’s most famous landmark is Liberty State Park. With a dramatic backdrop of the Manhattan skyline, Liberty State Park is the gateway to the State of Liberty and Ellis Island. But the historic Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal is also worth seeing.

Liberty Science Center

With interactive exhibits and an IMAX theatre, this hands-on science center is fun for kids and grown-ups. See the night sky up-close in the observatory, then take the kids to dig for dinos. Changing exhibits mean this museum always has something new and exciting to offer.

Empty Sky Memorial

Jersey City’s poignant Empty Sky Memorial commemorates the New Jersey residents lost on 9/11. The memorial points toward Ground Zero, with names inscribed on two parallel steel walls.

I have to say that Michael and his associate made my first time experience with Turo extremely positive. Michael’s timely communication and response removed the uncertainty. I couldn’t have made it to a family members funeral without the convenience of his service at a reasonable price that a large car rental agency couldn’t offer. Michael went out of his way to get me to my destination, customer focus at its best. I will definitely use Michael’s service again.

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 2021

I've rented this Wrangler from Chaya to attend my brother's wedding! It was the best experience I've ever had from any rental company ever! The color looks amazing in person! At first I thought it was black but it is a different type of black called granite, looks amazing and better in person! This 2021 wrangler has 3 modes that Chaya helped understand what I was renting, it has hybrid, electric & e-save mode! The last time I rented a wrangler in 2019, I remember my complaint was that it eats alot of gas, but Chaya's 2021 jeep wrangler is a hybrid, so it helped save alot of money where I barely had to fill up any gas! You can just plug it in & charge it with electricity like a normal house outlet & it charges the vehicle's battery to give you a great run! Car was clean inside with amazing leather seats! Speakers & sound system is booming! Usb, auxiliary, Bluetooth all working! You can even take the top compartment off to turn this into a convertible jeep! I really loved it & highly recommend! I saw she has a BMW i8 too for rental when I went to pick the wrangler from the lot & next time I'm planning to rent that for my brother's reception too! I highly recommend Chaya & this is not any fake review. I'm from NYC & to rent, these kinda vehicles are priced 2x times here & majority of the time aren't even available in my city & they do not have Turo in NYC, so I had to travel 20 mins away from Manhattan to Jersey City, NJ to rent & find it! So it wasn't too far. Well worth it! Thank you Chaya!

Car is clean and came with a full tank. It's street parking (pick up and drop off) but it's easy to find a spot especially on steuben st. Andrew was very responsive and accommodating, he offered to help with the parking spot if we couldn't find one.

5 Star, however I was really concern when I was trying to shorten my reservation and I didn’t hear from him for days. He should let customers know he can’t be contacted Saturdays due to religious reasons. In all fairness, we booked the reservation for longer period of time and I understand it might seem as an inconvenience to change dates last minute. One thing I would suggest is to always have someone available to guests, no matter what day of the week it is, someone approving change requests. Also, they washed the car really poorly before I picked it up, this issue should not be reflected on the star rating because I believe we all can have bad service even at the best dealership once in a while. Unfortunately that was the day for us but no problem. Other than that, he was very polite and and courteous. He made sure the registration was up to date, he said the manager checked the full condition of the vehicle before we picked it up, the car was reliable and all we needed for this trip. Thank you! I look forward for to book our next reservation with Mordechai.

My experience renting vehicle with van was the best I’ve had by far, host was very helpful and responsive. Van made it extremely easy when picking up vehicle, I left a item in his vehicle and van made arrangements to have the item dropped off to me. No traditional car rental service would’ve ever done that I would definitely rent a vehicle from van again. Great experience!!!

Awesome host. Let me pick up at 6am to get to the beach to surf some of the best waves the east coast has seen in awhile. Car was brand new as stated and very clean. He is super responsive and fast. Funny enough my GF rented a Nissan from him and I was with her and we had another awesome experience that time. I didn't put two and two together. Would keep coming back to him for rentals!

Deric is the gold standard among Turo hosts. He is my absolute #1 "go to" host. First, all Deric's vehicles are spotless and well-maintained. They drive beautifully. Second, his vehicles are parked on driveways along a one-block cul de sac near the Jersey City waterfront. I never have to search for the pickup location, search for a parking space upon return, fight with traffic while parking, or trek miles into Jersey City's interior. Third, Deric checks drivers in and out remotely. I don't have to stand around waiting for a host to arrive or worry whether the host will remember to wear a mask. Fourth, his vehicles are fun to drive. They are mostly Honda and Hyundai (budget friendly!), but they all feel sporty and spacious. In summary, I laser in on Saddlewood Court whenever I need to rent from Turo. If Deric has something available, I grab it.

Amazing experience! SeanBoy was super accommodating with all of our annoying requests. The car was also ridiculously nice. It drove really well, was perfectly clean and and had tons of room. We were a group of 6 with 6 suitcases and it was cozy but worked totally fine, even when we were in the car for 3 hours in a ridiculous traffic jam. Could not recommend more highly. The fact that we rented the car for the same price as a generic rental car, and he accommodated an airport return, is just too good to be true!

We are Tesla enthusiasts and rented the car to explore for a day out of the city. The car was in a super convenient location that made for an easy pick up and charge when we finished up the day! The car was clean and charged upon arrival and communication leading up to and during our rental was spot on. Would highly recommend!

Best Jersey City driving roads
