Short Hills

Leaving the city and moving to the suburbs is one of those coming of age steps that can feel like you’ve thrown in the proverbial towel! The city is fun and exciting, with everything to do while the suburbs roll up the sidewalks at 8 p.m. At least that’s the stereotype. But if you’re looking at Millburn-Short Hills homes, it’s not the reality at all. 

There is much to do near Millburn-Short Hills homes. There are great restaurants (and many new) in downtown Millburn. One of my personal favorites is Cara Mia, a family owned Italian place that’s right around the corner from The Paper Mill Playhouse. The Common Lot, on 27 Main St has been included in the NJ Monthly Top 25 Best Restaurants for 2016! Grab a bagel at The Bagel Chateau also known as Goldberg’s Famous Deli or a Sloppy at The Millburn Deli. There are also many art galleries to browse. People who live in Millburn-Short Hills homes get to take advantage of great events, as well. In April, there is the annual Street Fair with music, food, and a wide selection of gorgeous artisan-crafted art. Over the summer, enjoy the Fourth of July gala and the summer Farmers Market taking place on Tuesday’s 9am-3pm Main & Essex Street.
