If you're raising a family in the greater New York area, look no further than Morris County. This area, in the heart of Northern New Jersey, is full of beautiful and charming small towns that are all about the family. Beautiful homes, great parks, and highly ranked schools mean that your children will grow up in a little paradise all their own. Plus, access to New York City, whether for work or for play, couldn't be easier with the Midtown Direct commuter train. Come see what all the excitement is about!
One of the great things about Morris County is the outdoors. In the big city, there is no space for kids to run around and get that fresh air they need. Morris County has over 13,000 acres dedicated to county parks in addition to the copious number of city, town, and borough parks. The Great Swamp Outdoor Education Center is a beautiful, fun, and educational experience for kids and parents alike to observe some of the natural marshes of the area. When the fall colors show up, this is a particularly amazing place to see the changing seasons. Or, take the kids out to Alstede Farms where kids can learn about farm animals, pick some fresh produce and enjoy some delicious homemade ice cream or apple cider.
Education is a top priority for many families, and those of Morris County are no different. The county is home to numerous schools ranked highly even among New Jersey's excellent offerings. Morristown High School, for example, was ranked 66th by New Jersey Monthly out of almost 400 public high schools in the state. Plus, the county has an overall high school graduation rate of over 98-percent so you know your children will be in a motivated and focused academic setting.
Of course, no place could be home without great amenities. Morris County is just hours from New York City and all of its excellent art, performances, designer shopping, and world-class cuisine. But, closer to home you'll find all you need to live the life you're dreaming of. Streets of Chester, a mall in Chester Township, offers high end offerings like J. Crew and Coach. And in towns like Morristown and Chester, historic, walkable downtown shopping districts provide unique shops and goods you'll not find anywhere else.
