Located in the middle of Northern New Jersey, Morris County is west of New York City, though a bit further west than some other NJ counties. However, the extra minutes of commuting could pay big dividends for those who want a relaxed lifestyle with all of the modern trappings without the exorbitant prices.
No time spent in Morris County is complete without stopping in Morristown, home to a charming downtown, historic districts, top-notch dining options, exciting retail shops, and tons of green space. Madison, Mountain Lakes, and Chatham are just some of the other towns worth exploring. The county is home to important American Revolutionary War historic sites and museums, an exciting mix of art galleries, craft shows, musical venues, and performing arts centers, and can’t-miss antique shops and shopping centers. Families also get access to plenty of parks, trails, golf courses, and farms.
