How to Make the Most of Your Layover in Newark

Ah, Newark, New Jersey. Not only is it the most populous city in the state and one of the oldest cities in the US, with roots going back to 1666, but it’s also an epicenter of the American shipping industry; where rail, truck, air, and sea commerce all meet in one of the nation’s busiest ports. Whether you’re in the Garden State to hit up the casinos of Atlantic City, the boardwalks at the shore, or just the highways en route to New York, there’s plenty to see, eat, and entertain yourself with just within the confines of Newark Liberty International Airport’s 3 concourses, and InMotion has the scoop.

Grab a Bite, Jersey Style

Or whatever style suits your current craving.

As New Jersey is smack dab in the middle of the heartland of Italian-American culture, those with a craving for the flavors of the Mediterranean are almost spoiled for choice at Newark. Abruzzo Italian Steakhouse, located in concourse C, offers restaurant style sit-down dining for the traveller forever cursed by long layovers. Casciano Italian Specialties is located in terminal C as well for the diner lacking the time to have a seat and take in the ambiance. Not feeling pasta or an Italian sub? No sweat: Newark has dining options to suit any craving, such as the Wanderlust Burger Bar in concourse C, Sora Sushi in concourse B, and Phillip's Seafood in concourse A. All this, along with the usual fast food offerings, should make grabbing a bite the least of your concerns at Newark.

Anyone for a Mani/Pedi?

Let’s face it. Restaurants? Bars? At an airport? Old hat. Not that it isn’t nice to find a quaint little bar or an unexpectedly quality restaurant while your waiting to board your flight, but we expect this kind of thing from our airports now. You’re more likely to find expensive liquor and swiss watch stores there than you are at a shopping mall at this point. If you’re in search of a truly unique amenity, why not stop by  Newark’s D_Parture Spa. Care for a massage to relieve the back pain from cramming yourself into economy class? How about a manicure? Or even a haircut? Imagine people’s surprise when you tell them you got the new do they love so much at an airport.

Ogio’s line of bags and suitcases can be trusted to withstand all the rigors of travelling, as they work with extreme sports professionals in the world of motocross and BMX to design bags that can adapt to their lifestyle on the edge.

Now Boarding

Stop and smell the roses, wherever they may be.

It’s easy to simply ignore most of the amenities at an airport in the rush to get through security, get to your gate, and make sure everyone’s got their documentation in order before getting on the plane. But keep in mind that fun is where you find it, not always where it’s advertised. Whether it’s a better than expected cocktail at the airport lounge, or some fine dining with a view of the runway, modern airports can be tourist attractions in their own right. So the next time you fly through Newark International Airport, grab a drink, relax, or do some airport shopping; your options are endless.
