The Delaware Water Gap. Haven't been there in years, but I remember it being beautiful...

Delaware Water Gap is beautiful, as occ says. Serene forests, lakes and water. There's also a cool little trail with great bird wildlife south of Newark. It's a state Wildlife Refuge, but I can't remember the name, near Madison. Finally, you should definitely go down to Cape May at some point.

I agree with Cape May but your main objective should be to get out of Newark asap!

The Environmental Education Center at Lord Stirling Park. 8 miles of trails, a third of which are boardwalk.
