Travel Tips for Morristown
The visit the town green...
The visit the town green located in the center of town. This is unusual for New Jersey. This is more a New England characteristic. You have a couple of big churches and it is the center of the town. There are also many stores in close proximity.
Take a walk around the Square....
Take a walk around the Square. There are lots of neat shops and it is so pretty. A real touch of hometown America. Going with mom to work in Morristown on our days off. We would eat at a nice restaurant, shop the square, watch the guide dogs in training, and buy a new outfit at Bamburger's.
A groovy place to have coffee
On Speedwell Ave. , just past the Headquarters Plaza headed North, is a coffee shop called Cafe Arabica. This is a cozy avant-garde place where you can drink a variety of coffees and if you are adventurous, smoke from a "hookah". The hookahs have different flavors of tobacco to try.
Overview of Morristown & General NJ Info
"New Jersey for British Folk"
now live in Surrey, about 15 miles south of London and can tell the world first hand that the British think that (in a nutshell) the USA is comprised of:
* Florida - they're ideal retirement
haven (second to Spain)
* New York City & Niagra Falls
* Las Vegas (a top travel priority)
* Yellowstone national park
Mention "New Jersey" and many geographically asute British people have no idea which state New Jersey is. In fact, one individual thought New Jersey was a town.. maybe he thought I was from Jersey Channel Island?
I've heard Boston & Washington DC mentioned a few times, but rarely. The British want to go somewhere warm and sunny mostly to make up for the fact that they exist in perpetual depression brought on by grey skies. Speak to any Brit about the weather and you'll feel like you are speaking to a veritable weatherman. "due to the North Wind flowing in from Scandanavia...".
Originally a New Jerseyite, I thoroughly resent that our state is not on the list of states considered worth visiting.
I therefore have begun reconditioning the British to
understand that New York City is no more than a tiny island off of the coast of New Jersey (FACT).
Brits are not educated to the (very important) fact tha the Statue of Liberty is partially within the New Jersey State Border and is very visible from NJ. - In fact NJ collects 50% of the toursit revenue from Statue visits.
I like to point out that it is much more affordable to stay in the new Marriot in Newport, Jersey City ($99 on weekends or less! incl buffet) and take the 8 minute path train into NYC, than to actually book a room in NYC.
And then there is Hoboken. Hoboken - the home of Frank Sinatra, great dance clubs & resteraunts, is but a 1 minute by path train from the Marriot in Jersey City)
How about a cruise? Any visiting Brit should sign up with a Hudson River Cruise bookable online or at NJ 's Port Imperial. I fully recommend the Sleepy Hollow tour or the tour to visit Rockafeller's estate.
New Jersey has tons to offer. From Hoboken, on can hop on the New Jersey Transit train to Historic Morristown (45 min) (featuring historic Jockey Hollow & George Washington's home); or even to Princeton (1hr30min), home of Princeton University. If you do visit Morristown, NJ make it a point to visit the Morristown GREEN, and various historic homes in the area.
How about Atlantic City, which feature a beach (I don't recommend Brits to jump into the water) AND casinos and features streets from the game Monopoly.
