Bernardsville Reviews

Small up-scale town, very friendly, and great for families. Although living here is expensive, it is definitely worth the price. The local schools are highly ranked and a great experience for all children. The town has a lot of great places to eat for a fancy night out, or just the casual family pizza night. There are plenty of side walks and crossing guard so kids can walk around town after school safely. There is a bunch of cute boutique stores to shop in as well as a small movie theater to see all the new movies. Access to the town is very ideal- especially for commuters. There is a train station down town that will take you straight to New York City (about an hour ride) if commuting. There is also a bus station that will take you to multiple locations. There is also easy access to 287, 202, 206 and 78.
Review Bernardsville
Great school system and quite a few parks/green space. Safe, quaint, and quiet; so there isn't much to do. Too many nail salons/beauty parlors and banks.
The local businesses in this area are great. Everytime I visit one, everyone is very friendly and welcoming. Most popular in this area is probably Lennys Pizza. Everyone hangs out there after school. The food is great too!
