West Orange, one of the largest towns in Essex County, has something to offer everyone. Just a 30 minute bus or car ride to New York City, West Orange is filled with lovely townhouses and single family neighborhoods. While the various neighborhoods each have their own character, they all have old-fashioned charm on spacious properties. This old-fashioned charm is maintained throughout the town in various mom and pop shops and restaurants.
Main Street is a refreshingly quaint and walkable stretch of the downtown. However, with various shopping centers, and close proximity to The Mall at Short hills, the shopping opportunities are robust. The town’s ice rink and community pool are just two of the many activities available.
From the South Mountain Reservation, with its reservoir, to the public golf courses, to the Turtle Back Zoo, there’s no loss of nature in West Orange. West Orange is ideal for those interested in the perks of more suburban lifestyle, with easy access to New York City, or other parts of New Jersey.
