A historic town in the middle of many major business centers, Morristown draws thousands of employees from other area communities. NJ Transit has a bustling train station here with Midtown direct service and residents can commute via several major highways such as I-287 and I-280.

    Morristown Memorial Hospital is a large, respected hospital that employs many residents. Fairleigh Dickinson University, College of Saint Elizabeth and Drew University are all located just outside of town. Of course, this brings many young people to Morristown.

    The Morristown Green is the center of the downtown area. It houses lots of shops and restaurants and a large hotel. The Green is home to the annual Festival on the Green and a Christmas celebration. The community of Morristown has a theater and lots of historic sites such as Ford Mansion, which served as Washington's headquarters during the Revolutionary War and many Victorian-era homes.

  • Now that summer is here, Morristown has a wonderful assortment of choices for outside dining, or shall we say, dining al fresco! Choose from the newer Italian restaurant, Fiore's, on Elm Street or The Swiss Chalet Bakery at Elm and South Streets. Other notable choices are The Committed Pig and the Deli on Elm Street (that is pet-friendly) for casual fare.

    For more fine dining choices, you must visit Jockey Hollow at the Vail Mansion reflective pond site on South Street. Continue westward, and catch lunch or dinner at the Grande Cafe for an escape to a little taste of Europe with a lovely canopy setting overlooking a small park. What ever you decide, Morristown is the place to dine al fresco!
  • Today Morristown welcomes Whole Foods Market to the old location of the A&P on Washington Street just west of the Green. The cars were lined up, traffic was managed with parking assistants and the store was booming! Exciting, new and what a fabulous selection of produce for this Morristown location.

    I feel the west side of Morristown will benefit from this new addition of food shopping options and make it more inviting for Morristown residents to stroll down to the store, shop and buy healthy, wholesome food!

  • One of the best views of downtown Morristown, is the Park / Historical site known as "Fort Nonsense". It is located off of Ann St, as you turn onto Chestnut Street behind the courthouse. Ft. Nonsense is a high elevation vantage point overlooking Morristown, built as a fortress for approximately 30 soldiers to guard against the British in the spring of 1777.

    The name "Nonsense" came about after the war because it was considered a project built to keep the soldiers occupied and was never used as a military site. It did serve the purpose of Washington's strategy to have the best high elevation views to protect the center of what is now Morristown.

    Grand Café has always been a staple in Morristown. I recommend this restaurant to many of my clients due to the succulent food that’s offered (the steak is amazing), the atmosphere and the location. Grand Café has something on the menu for even the pickiest eater. The Grand Café also offers outside dining for those warm summer nights.

    Grand Café has changed their menu to offer competitive pricing to the newer restaurants that are now in downtown Morristown and also now offers casual dress which has a more contemporary feel.

    The piano player in the front makes the atmosphere very relaxing and cozy. Next time you’re looking for a great place for a special occasion give Grand Café a try. You’ll be happy you did!

The eight-mile-long pathway starts at Morristown’s famous equestrian center, Seaton Hackney Stables, and cuts through South Street Recreation Area, an ideal place for families with small children to enjoy fields and playgrounds. As the trail follows babbling Loantaka Brook, hikers can saunter through a forested area called the Kitchell Road section in Convention Station. The Loantaka Way Trail, the fourth and final section, skips along a creek through the Helen Hartley Jenkins Woods in Chatham Township.

    Besides being an historic town, Morristown is also the home of the Seeing Eye. If you spend any time in Morristown, you are apt to see Seeing Eye guide dogs in training. The Seeing Eye was brought to the USA by Morris Frank who moved the Seeing Eye to Morristown from Tennessee in 1939. My family and I have had the good fortune of being personal friends with Morris Frank and his wife, Lois, who lived in Mendham before his death in 1980.His hard work and perseverance is what bought the Seeing Eye to where it is today. The office administrator for our Chatham RE/MAX office has raised numerous dogs for the Seeing Eye. It’s a wonderful and heartwarming experience for children as well as adults.

    All of this makes Morristown even a more fulfilling town to live in.

    Last night we had a chance to see a show at the Morristown Community Theater, also known as the Mayo Performing Arts Center. It’s centrally located in the heart of Morristown, at 100 South Street. I just love this place! It offers a wide variety of contemporary, classical, and jazz concerts, as well as dance, theatre, comedy, family and educational programs. Tickets are reasonably priced and there’s public parking about 2 blocks away.

    Since the theater is a non-profit organization, an army of volunteers are always at your disposal to assist you to your seat or answer a question. This year with the completion of the lobby expansion, the theater offers new rest rooms, an elevator to the balcony, a separate box office space, and since they redesigned the plaza area, the bar offers plenty of room for a pre-show cocktail.

    Morristown offers restaurants for everyone’s palate and pocketbook. Directly next door is Don’s Hamburgers, The Brick Oven Restaurant, or just grab a frozen yogurt after the show. So if you’re new to Morris County or a lifelong resident, make it a point to visit Morristown and see a show!
