It is a very nice area with many parks, high ranking schools, and family activities. Also, we were ranked the 5th best place to live in the United States by Money Magazine in September of 2016! A wonderful place to settle down and experience all four seasons to their fullest. Parents and kids alike will love the atmosphere and quiet that our beautiful town has to offer.

Parsippany is a great place to live, hence the nickname "The Place to Be". It has a lot of community value, great public schools, a great library, many restaurants, some recreational places/athletic fields, etc. One thing I would like to see more of is places to go to on the weekend for kids, teenagers, and adults.Other than that, I wouldn't change anything about it!
Schools are great, but could has some administration problems that need more transparency between the public and us. Otherwise, many teachers are great there.
Overall life, it's hard to get around without a car. There's many stores around, some of them more high-scale than others, but it's very difficult to get public transportation around here.
Overall, it's an OK town, but I wish it's easier to get around.
