From its rich history to its beautiful streets and modern culture, there are always things to do in Elizabeth.

From the local amenities – parks, and museums, to beautiful sightseeing locations. So, without further adieu, here’s our list of the top things to do in Elizabeth after the move.

Elizabeth, New Jersey
There is a reason why people call Elizabeth the largest city in New Jersey.

Elizabeth, New Jersey

When the English settlers arrived in America in the 17th century, among the many colonies they had at that time, was also a piece of land in America called New Jersey. In 1964, three Englishmen – John Baily, Daniel Denton, and Luke Watson, bought a piece of property in New Jersey that was about to have a radical change in administration for several years. The piece of property they bought was a town called Elizabethtown. However, soon after the American Revolution came and the township soon became a borough. And after the war was all settled and done, the borough soon became a city, the City of Elizabeth. A name that has remained unchanged, even after all these years.

Elizabeth has a very interesting origin story.

Things to do in Elizabeth after the move

There are a lot of reasons why people move. For example, some people might move because of new job opportunities in New Jersey, some because they just want to start anew. However, some are not so lucky. A few people, for example, have to hire eviction movers NJ, because they have to leave their property due to eviction.

Whatever your reasoning may be for relocating to Elizabeth, you have to learn and adapt to your surroundings. And there is no better way to do just that by exploring all the fun activities and amenities this city has to offer.

The Mills at Jersey Garden

Be sure to check out The Mills if you are itching for a shopping spree.

If shopping is what you love then you must visit the biggest outlet center in New Jersey, the Mills at Jersey Garden. It has over 200 stores, and tax-free shopping, making it the perfect place for shopping in outlets such as the Marshall’s, Sephora, Bed Bath & Beyond. However, if on the other hand, you don’t like shopping… AMC IMAX theaters are readily available here. And the best news? It’s really easy to commute there. All you need is to hop on a bus at Port Authority Bus Terminal or the Newark Liberty International Airport and you’ll be there in no time flat!

Warinanco Park

Warinanco Park is a very nice park with plenty of recreational space. You name it, they’ve got it: soccer fields, baseball fields, basketball fields, and even skate rinks in the winter!  It also has a very beautiful lake which is breathtaking in the summer. This offers a great opportunity for fitness since you can rent pedal boats and enjoy the beautiful sights of Warinanco park. There are several playgrounds and many picnic areas you can enjoy with your family and friends. So, in summary, if you are looking for a place to get some fitness in, or just to enjoy its beautiful sights don’t forget to add Warinanco Park to your moving checklist.

Boxwood Hall

So, we’ve briefly gone over the history of Elizabeth in this article. However, if you want to experience it firsthand, then we recommend that you visit Boxwood Hall. Sam Woodruff, then-mayor of Elizabeth built it in the 1750s. Located in downtown Elizabeth, the sight of Boxwood Hall takes you back in the 18th century. And it makes you imagine how its grounds and mansion looked during the Revolutionary War. However, not only does the outside impress but also it’s soaring ceilings and spacious rooms can leave you beguiled at the beauty of this structure. A definite must-see if you want to call yourself an Elizabethian.

Nugent’s Tavern

So, Elizabeth, as you might be able to tell, has a lot of amenities that can be explored. From parks, museums to shopping malls. However, what we have failed to mention is that it has awesome restaurants as well! We managed to save our best pick for last.
Nugent’s Tavern is an Irish pub and grill. However, if we said it was just that, we would be doing this fine establishment a great disfavor. This pub is filled to the brim with amazing American food and drinks. Beautiful burgers and craft beers, as well as expensive scotch and other liquor. We recommend that you visit this place during St. Patricks Day as the discounts they offer on their menu… As well as the energy in the pub during this festival is something you must experience yourself.

So in conclusion, what things should I do in Elizabeth?

Thankfully, there are a lot of amenities to visit. Elizabeth is not called the largest New Jersey city for naught. So, make sure you explore every nook and cranny, visit the Boxwood Hall, eat burgers and Nugent’s Tavern, or pasta in Valenca. And after all that hard work, make sure to visit Bodies and Faces spa center for some relaxing.

    Pleasure to work with them We were fortunate to have been referred to Bluebell Relocation Services by a trusted friend of ours. It was one of the best decisions we made during our moving process. The movers were polite and friendly and delicate with all of our belongings. They were understanding of our situation and willing to cater to our needs in any way possible. Their expertise made everything run like clockwork. Our belongings made it to the new house without a single scratch or ding.

    Epitome of moving The move couldn't have gone any better. The moving team really did a great job. I could tell from the first phone call that they were a good moving service. They were very organized and detailed and helped me understand my moving estimate. They accommodated all my requests and were on time for their pick up and it was a speedy delivery. Hopefully I will not be moving again anytime soon but if it does come up, I know exactly who to call.

    I couldn't be happier Bluebell Relocation Services made my move the easiest one ever. The movers were courteous when they showed up and they clarified the items I was most concerned about so that extra care could be taken. Everything was loaded and unloaded quickly without any damage to anything or any box. After moving in, the boxes were sorted exactly as I asked. I couldn't have asked for a better moving experience. I wouldn't hesitate to refer them to anyone needing a moving service. Origin : Clifton, NJ Destination : New York, NY Quoted Price : $1,700.00 Actual Price : $1,751.00

    Complete service for a reasonable price This company was worth every penny we spent on their amazing help. The movers were incredibly hard working, friendly and considerate with all our things.

    Moved for the best possible price This company is the best moving company I found yet. I called Bluebell Relocation Services for a quote and the sales reps answered all my questions before the move. When the move day arrived, the moving team was there on time with a big truck to fit all my stuff and more. All my furniture arrived quick but perfectly. The price was awesome, which in my opinion is the best you will find. I will definitely recommend them. Origin : Kearny, NJ Destination : Raleigh, NC Quoted Price : $1,954.00 Actual Price : $2,000.00

The movers were professional, friendly and fast. Highly recommended moving service. Origin : Kearny, NJ Destination : Aurora, KY Quoted Price : $2,000.00 Actual Price : $2,070.00

    A delightful relocation I never thought that one could find a relocating company with the aim of making your relocation the best experience. That was until I used Bluebell Relocation Services to move to VA last month. They took over everything with my work being to listen to their funny stories and helping with identification of stuff here and there. I was so at ease with the whole process, a feeling I never thought I would have when having a long distance relocation. I can say that that was the best relocating experience I've had so far. Origin : Patterson, NJ Destination : Falls Church, VA Quoted Price : $1,900.00 Actual Price : $1,900.00

I had to relocate my belongings many times in the last three years, and something always broke to the other side. I was so frustrated that I was even ready to do everything on my own, but my brother knew someone in Blue Bell, and he sent me his contact information. I was straight that I would not bear any losses, and he asked me to rest assured. I have everything relocated safely for the first time.

My parents were shifting near my place in Omaha and were a bit confused about how to relocate everything. My friends suggested that I use Blue Bell services, and we called them. They gave me an estimated cost on the call itself and completed the service well within the time frame. My parents also had a great time interacting with their amicable workers. I am happy with their service and their polite working staff.

Their service is unmatched, and so is their professionalism. I required someone for fast shifting and relocation, and I explained my situation to the Bluebell's manager. He gave me a quote immediately and began the process. I did not expect anyone to relocate all my items to my new location 50 kilometers away the next day. Blue Bell services have indeed proved me wrong by doing it very efficiently. I am impressed with the team's strength and dedication to serving their customers.

    I used this company 3 weeks ago for my move while I relocated with my family. It was a huge move. They had to pack, move and store all my belongings and they had to lift and move the heavy furniture and stuffs using the very narrow stair ways from the 5th floor. I was ready for some damage but nothing happened like that. Movers did extremely well to move all my stuff at the right place within the allotted time and in one piece. I am really impressed and happy with the service their men and also happy how their rep managed to schedule my move and my thanks also goes to the outside estimator for a very precise onsite estimate. I recommend Bluebell Relocation Services to everyone for all kind of relocation needs.
  • Avatar Virgil Partin ★★★★★ June 13, 2019
    Bluebell Relocation Services is a good moving company I must say. It was very easy to communicate with them. They understood my requirements and gave me a pretty good deal. They sent their moving team first thing in the morning on the moving day. The movers were, efficient, caring and sincere. They knew how the furniture needed to be taken out of the apartment. I gladly recommend them because they have given me a smooth move without any damages.
  • Avatar Daniel Adler ★★★★★ June 11, 2019
    There are not enough superlatives to describe how impressed I was with Bluebell Relocation Services. These guys were punctual, extremely polite and got on with the job as soon as they arrived. Everything was handled with extreme care at our old and new homes. The transportation of more challenging items was brought through carefully and executed perfectly. If you want to de-stress the day of your move, these folks will go a long way to achieve that goal.

    Bluebell Relocation Services was an incredible moving company in all aspects of customer service. Everyone we interacted with was professional and helpful. On the day of the move, the movers were extremely efficient and great to work with. I am truly satisfied and impressed with their service provided. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
  • Avatar Donald Fitz ★★★★★ June 8, 2019
    I was really impressed with Bluebell Relocation Services. They provided me multiple options and a great price quote. The moving team was on time. They wrapped and covered items like the contract says they will. They've been quick to get back to me, but have also given me plenty of time to make a decision. From the movers to drivers and each and every one was friendly and efficient. It was an impressive move. I will use them again.
  • Avatar David Miller ★★★★★ June 7, 2019
    I had not worked with Bluebell Relocation Services before but the praises my friend accorded them gave me an idea of what to expect. After making enquiries from their sales personnel, we agreed on the job details and he promised to send their movers on the agreed date. On the moving day, the moving team arrived at my house at 8am sharp with everything necessary to relocate me. The whole moving process was smooth and took such a short time. Now I can also recommend them.
  • Avatar Billy Michael Batey Jr. ★★★★★ April 29, 2019
    Bluebell Relocation Services is a sure bet - the best moving company we have ever used. The team showed up promptly and packed and moved all our furniture with great care. Their pricing estimate turned out to be exactly what the move ended up costing and they were very pleasant to work with. I will always use them for my future moves and I would highly recommend them to anyone moving.
