I have lived in Bernardsville for 30 years and don't regret raising my children here. My youngest just graduated high school and has moved on to a great university. This is a small town, neighbors rally to help each other when needed, the location is great because you have everything you need downtown and all major highways are within a 5 minute ride. Downtown is in the process of a revitalization program which has already brought great new shops and restaurants to our downtown area and there is more to come!

Very nice, small town. Historical, safe, and friendly, Bernardsville has a lot to offer many. Whether you want to go for a walk, 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. Great for families.
To live in a place that is so spectacularly beautiful, where nature is everywhere and be so close to NYC is something we loved every day here for the past 20+ years. We raised both our kids here (now ages 27 and 31) and they have wonderful memories.
