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
Needs more diversity, but great school system. Could use some modern updates in order to keep up with areas of similar economic prosperity. Downtown needs help as local businesses consistently leave and too many banks are instead in the area.
Historic, safe, and friendly, Bernardsville has a lot to offer many. Whether you want to go for a hike, shop, or enjoy a nice meal, there's a myriad of enjoyable experiences to be had. Bring your wallet though, as many restaurants can be a little pricey.
