Worth the trip: I recently enjoyed an amazing brunch at Maritime Parc (84 Audrey Zapp Drive, Jersey City) on the waterfront at Liberty State Park in Jersey City. (The gorgeous views of Manhattan make it extra special) For Easter they’ll offer their regular brunch menu, as well as a few specials. Plus, they set up an adorable Easter candy table for children to help themselves!
