Lindsley of Morristown and Lewis Carter of Chatham, and is one of New Jersey´s most important public buildings in the Federal style.

  • The Seeing Eye

    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...

  • The Morris Museum

    My favorite exhibit was the American Indian exhibit. It was neat to learn about the Lenee Lenape indians that used to live in the area. The huge taxidermy animals were pretty awesome when I was little, too.

Morristown Restaurants

  • Nine Thai Has Highs and Lows

    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...

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

Morristown Off The Beaten Path

  • by mgnewton Written Feb 15, 2005

    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....

    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.

    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.
