The Funky Monkey.Whoa it was quiet when we visited. But it was a Wednesday night. Morristown is a town full of major corporate headquarters where they send receuits from all around to do training. So on most nights there are still people out for a drink. Scouting the scene so to speak.Anyway we stopped in here as were had to visit it. It was ok....more
The "new" Morris County Courthouse was built between 1826 and 1827. It was designed by two local architects, Joseph M. Lindsley of Morristown and Lewis Carter of Chatham, and is one of New Jersey´s most important public buildings in the Federal style. For many years, bells rang from the belfry at the start of court and when fire threatened a...more
The first place in the US to train guide dogs for the blind. The tour is really interesting and the puppies are too cute to miss. It is amazing to see how smart these animals are and the trust between the blind person and the dog. You can see dogs and new person/dog pairings in training all over town. The final exam includes the stairs at the...more

It was a celebration of my wife's birthday and I chose a local Thai restaurant because they have her favorite cuisine. Nine Thai Cuisine is located on the eastern edge of a full block strip mall in Chatham Township NJ, one town over from Morristown. The meal started with a propitious note with the 9 Thai sampler (I learned decades ago to always...more
This restaurant is located at 18 Washington St. 1/2 block from the southwest corner of the Morristown Green. It has been around for all of the 15 years I have lived in the Morristown area, but this was my first visit. It happened on the first night of Morristown Restaurant Week 2013 so a special prix fixed menu was offered and it was the reason I...more
Even if you thought you didn't like empanadas, you'll like Raul's. Over 2 dozen "flavors", incl. 5 sausage w/lime; Hawaiin (ham/pineapple);5 cheese; shrimp...all priced from $2. to $3.65--yumbo! There are even 9 dessert empanadas. Something for everyone, vegans included. Its as much a take out as eat-in place, really one-of-a-kind and excellent...more

The nearest big airport is Newark. The best way is by car, although there is bus transportation to the town.
The best, and just about only, way to get around is by car. You can walk the downtown area.
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.
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.more
