    Overall Newark Travel Experience by Season

    Spring (March through May)

    Summer (June through August)

    The middle-year months have very comfortable weather with high temperatures that are quite warm. June – August is slow/unreported season for tourism in Newark, so lodging and other accommodations may cost as much as usual.
