What Renters Like and Dislike About Morristown

One of my favorite local businesses is tea my route and Albertson's and also Starbucks Bank of America. Yeah that's it about what I like I like I like to go with my friends and family on a walk off on the trail that my community has

It is family friendly. Lot of restaurants nearby and they are easy to visit. The schools are one of the best in the nation which sets it apart from the rest of the world.

Morristown has experienced tremendous growth in the last 10 years. The community saved an old theater and transformed it into a live performing arts center. It has made a huge difference. People come to the restaurants and to go to the theater. Businesses have thrived. Demand for housing is strong. Being on the train line to NYC helps as well.

Its a very nice area all of the restaurants are good. There are a lot of areas to go. I am very pleased with it.

My neighborhood has premium access to the top trials in California, and it offers scenic views wherever you go. It's also very convenient for outdoor activities, and there are plenty of resources and structures for kids to go outside and play (e.g. parks, playgrounds, etc.) There is also a shopping center with a variety of stores, restaurants, and services, including an Albertsons, Starbucks, and CVS. Overall, it is a very convenient place to live in.

I went to the best day ever good stuff in here and forever after. Really good parks and theme parks...
