Newark, NJ (UFC) question...

We are coming up for the UFC in March in Newark, NJ, and the Hilton that is two blocks from the Prudential Center is booked. From what I've heard there are some shady areas of Newark that you probably dont want to stay in. So I'm looking for some advice.

Anyone have any suggestions as to where to stay for the fights where its safe and has some night life?

Greatly appreciated. thanks!

Stay in NYC and take the train. It takes like 10 minutes.

All of Newark is pretty shady, I'd stay in NYC and take the train. Thats what I plan on doing.

Hoboken is a nice choice and not far at all. If you dont want to pay NYC prices

The problem with that is the price I would be paying for the hotel in NY. Last year when we went up to NY I couldn't find a hotel for less then 350.00 per night. Id pay it, but the friends I'll be traveling to the UFC with won't.

There are a bunch of hotels by Newark Airport in Elizabeth, NJ. You can always stay at one of those places and cab it Newark, probably like a 15/20 dollar cab ride.

Hey man I live in Camden it's a bit outside of Newark but it's real nice I can find you a place if you want.



PS :: Don't let people scare you, I lived in Newark earlier in my life and it's not that bad. You're not gonna get stabbed or shot or mugged just by walking around. Just have street smarts and don't do something stupid like leave your ipod in plain sight inside your car etc.

If price is an issue try Jersey City. There is nightlife and access to the PATH to take you to Newark and in the better areas it's totally safe.
