Sussex County, NJ
When I moved in 2011 to Sussex County, I never looked back! Having the land, affordable taxes and beautiful views was enough for me.
Sussex County is one of the most rural places in New Jersey. However, not every town is rural! That is what makes it so unique. You can have beautiful land for parties, barbecues, and space for the dogs to run, or you can own a house with stunning lake views and use your boat.
Enjoy antique stores, farmers markets and also excellent and diverse cuisine.
Lake Mohawk? Sparta is full of history. This charming European-looking town was just rated as one of the safest towns in the country!
Lake Hopatcong? The largest lake in the state welcomes a significant number of tourist activities during the summer.
As the capital of Sussex County, Newton is another gem! Right next to Sparta, you can find in the town of Newton antiques, restaurants, and proximity to the most beautiful trails within the state, like Swartswood.
Newton is a small town with a lot to offer! The Newton theater, home of music and shows, will bring you back in time. With a mix of urban lifestyle and some colonial charm, Newton is attracting a lot of new families. Of course, you can always go hiking, enjoy a picnic by the lake or swim during the summer!
You are minutes to Pennsylvania and minutes to upstate New Work. Great location for outdoor people with pets and active families!
