Morris County and Morristown NJ offers much in the way of historic getaways, cultural heritage, parks and recreation, wedding and banquet facilities, meeting spaces, cultural venues and events.
The Morris Museum, the Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms, Revolutionary War sites and Morristown National Historical Park are just a few of the world class attractions that we have to offer travelers to New Jersey. Ideally located 25 miles west of New York City, Morris County makes a perfect location for a diverse vacation with your family.
When it comes to quality of life, Morris County has few peers. Gracious suburban towns, rolling mountains and sophisticated downtowns all offer a diverse array of housing and recreational opportunities.
The county is in New Jersey's lush Skylands Region, home to 60,000+ acres of state parkland and 37 county parks, all offering ample outdoor fun. Twenty public and private golf courses and abundant recreation programs for youth round out a long list of offerings for active residents.
Morris County is also a stronghold for arts, culture and history. It is home to such institutions as the Morris Museum, recently named a Top Ten USA cultural destination, the critically acclaimed Shakespeare Theater of New Jersey, the stunning gardens at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum, The New Philharmonic of New Jersey, and the Morristown National Historical Park, the first such park in the nation.
The county is also just 30 minutes away from New York City and its endless menu of things to do.
Morris County is a convenient drive from the Jersey Shore and its 120 miles of beaches and oceanfront. In the opposite direction, Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains beckon skiers and all seeking a quiet, but close retreat.
Shopping and dining options abound. Healthcare in the county is superior. More than 180 churches and synagogues and a strong collection of civic organizations anchor this vibrant community.
