Somerset County is a place of vibrant connections with so much to offer:

  • Outstanding recreation, leisure, restaurants, and shopping areas, including our county parks and other amenities such as Duke Farms, TD Bank Ballpark and the Somerset Patriots, Ninety Acres Culinary Center, and close proximity to Big 10 football games at Rutgers University.

  • A transportation system that includes direct-rail service to Manhattan in addition to major interstates and federal highways.

  • Twenty-one varied residential communities, each with its own character, amenities, and diversity of residents.

  • Excellent public and private schools, and the most highly educated workforce in New Jersey.

  • A diverse business environment that is home to many Fortune 500 companies with high-knowledge occupational employment.
