#1 Morris County One Day Winter Break Itinerary
Visit a Museum
There is a lot of history to explore in Morris County. Many small museums are open and willing to schedule what amounts to a private tour for small groups. Make an appointment with the curator at a time that suits you. We recommend several small museums like Macculloch Hall, the Museum of Early Trades & Crafts, and the Morris County Historical Society at Acorn Hall.
New Jersey’s second largest museum, the Morris Museum, is open six days a week (closed Monday). Tour their rotating exhibits and collections like the world renown Guinness Collection of Mechanical Musical Instruments and Automata. A Smithsonian affiliate.
Grab some Lunch
Here is a link to our Dining Page. Check before you go to make sure they are open when you’re ready to grab a meal.
Take a Walk in the Park
We recommend the 26 miles of trails within Morristown National Historical Park at Jockey Hollow. Trails open each day dawn to dusk, as are portable restrooms, with ranger-staffed Visitor Contact Stations open Fri-Sat-Sun 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Morris County Park Commission has many choices for hiking trails and parks. We recommend the 127-acre Frelinghuysen Arboretum, a serene place to relax, as well as to learn, explore, and celebrate nature. Digital maps of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum are available online. Open each day dawn to dusk.
