Morristown is a really fantastic place to live if you appreciate being part of a vivacious, vibrant, diverse and HOT town where there is always something fun going on. One of our favorite things to do was to walk along Millionaire's Row - where stunning period homes were built over the turn of the century (Miller Avenue, Perry Street, McCullough, Maple and others that surround the center of town) - and go for a walk into town or meet friends and family at our favorite dining establishments or for a show at the movie theatre (Click Here to see what's playing at the TenPlex)or a concert at the Morristown Community Theatre. Some of our favorite restaurants include Sushi Lounge on Schyler, OriginThai II or the South Street Creamery, on South Street. Or PazzoPazzo on Speedwell, Sebastian's for fine steaks on Elm and our two favorite local bars - The Dublin Pub (a great place to drop in during a snow storm or for lunch on the patio in Summer) and Tashmoo on Dehart . The list can go on and on and on but you get the idea!
This town has a love of arts, crafts and history. Every October the Armory hosts the Morristown Craft Market which includes super quality art and crafts from all over. There is a Spring Art Show outside - usually in May. The McCullough Museum offers insights to our rich colonial history and roots. On New Year's Eve there are fireworks and an extensive First Night Celebration.
The Morris County Calendar of Events has a compelling list of happenings in Morristown and Morris County.
The choice of housing is vast and diverse. From downtown condos of all prices, including Vail Commons priced from the low $300's; Convent Mews and Park Plaza also starting in the $300's; The sophisticated Twombly starts in the $400's; 2 story townhouses at Morris Place start in the hi $300's; luxurious Vail Mansion starts in the $600's and 40 Park Place starts in the $500's.
