| Morristown is in New Jersey. |
Most places in the heart of the city (the square) are easily accessible by walking. If you arrive by train you'll probably have to call for a taxi for going anywhere beyond the immediate area. Walking will serve you well otherwise.
Slightly outside the city, off of highway 202 you'll find the famous headquarters of George Washington: Jockey Hollow. Now a historic park, one can go to see the camps and homes built hundreds of years ago, or just go for a nice relaxing getaway walk on one of the trails. The park also offers picnic areas and baseball fields. Be aware when driving in the park that the speed limits are aggressively enforced and that at times people will walk in the road and may not be visible over hills.
The Green is the central hot shot of shopping in Morristown. Century 21, a store that features designer clothing at low prices, (Carrie was shopping at one of the NY locations in an episode of Sex and the City) is currently the most popular large shopping center. However, there are many kitschy stores in the area.
There is an abundance of restaurants in Morristown serving pretty much every taste. As well Morristown, like most every other New Jersey city, has a diner which is open 24 hours a day. Near the train station the diner is nothing special among diners, but offers pretty good food at a good price and, once again as it is its main appeal, is open 24 hours a day.
