Staycation Ideas!

Many people don’t appreciate all of the unique things Morris County has to offer for summertime fun. Families often spend money going away for vacation or doing day trips throughout the summer. Instead of spending money on going away, whether for a long or short period of time, why not spend it where we already live, in Morris County?

Morris County offers great options for outdoor fun such as camping, hiking, fishing, and sightseeing. Each of these activities is not only fun, but inexpensive as well. A highly recommended spot is Splitrock Reservoir, which is right here in Rockaway. It is a perfect place for having a picnic with family and friends. It’s also a great spot for fishing, hiking, and sightseeing. Splitrock Reservoir is an incredible place to spend the weekend or even just the day. There are plenty of other places where you can do the same, such as Lewis Morris Park, Hacklebarney State Park, The Tourne, and even Hedden Park. Explore to see which is the best fit for you based on location and whether or not you plan to camp.

For the people who would rather kick it indoors, our county has plenty to offer so you can just hangout and have a good time. From relaxing and laidback to fun and exciting, Morris County has it all! Places like Castle Cove Mini Golf & Arcade, The Morristown Game Vault, and Funplex provide a day filled with excitement for both kids and teens. These places provide a variety of activities when it comes to gaming with your friends, from lazer tag to childhood favorites like skeeball.

With summer right around the corner people, it might be a good idea to explore what Morris County has to offer.
