In the height of summer, tourists check in and locals check out: escaping to the beach, despite the hours of traffic, jitney rides and overpriced accommodations. That is, unless you live at Newport, located at Jersey City's waterfront.

Newport residents have it all figured out. They have their very own urban beach, which overlooks the Manhattan skyline. Hamptons-like beach chairs and umbrellas are laid out on the sand, with a sparkling view of the Hudson River and urban skyline. A large, colorful splashpad sits behind the beach and the adjoining green turf area, for those with kids who need to cool off and run around.

In fact, when you walk down River Drive, with its cheerful restaurants, cafes and shops, you feel like you are walking down the street of a resort town, except that this beach town is open year-long and is a 10-minute ride to Manhattan. Talk about the best of both worlds. And for late-night partying, Hoboken is just a five-minute walk away. The Newport Centre Mall is also close by, filled with top national brands for serious shoppers, not to mention the multiplex cinema featuring the newest releases.

Newport residents enjoy everything that Manhattan, Hoboken and the Hamptons have to offer, and yet enjoy larger apartments while paying less.
