Compare Wayne to Top 10 Best Places
This historic city in Jersey is just 25 miles from NYC. For those who prefer the outdoors to city life, a climb to the top of High Mountain Park (885 feet) offers a beautiful Manhattan skyline view, and an extensive trail system (over 1,000 acres) gives a taste of the outdoors.
Schools are nationally ranked, and the city boasts several historic museums, including a mansion that served as George Washingtons headquarters in 1780. Activities like free movie nights under the stars are common, along with sightseeing trips to nearby Atlantic City, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and NYC.
For those willing to pay Jersey's high property taxes (more than $8,000 here, typically), the proximity to the outdoors and other big cities is worth it.
