"Great Place for Singles, Retirees and Active People"

West Orange is conveniently located in New Jersey. It is less than an hour drive to NYC (15 miles west), the mountains for skiing and golfing and the lovely Jersey shore. West Orange is home to the Eagle Rock Reservation, Llewellyn Park (Thomas Edison lived there and it is the first gated community in the country), Turtle Back Zoo and the South Mountain Skating Arena. West Orange has an wonderful Whole Foods Grocery store and is home to top restaurants including the Highlawn Pavillion, The Manor and the Pleasantdale Chateau. West Orange is a very charming town with rolling hills and has homes built in the 1800s as well as new developments (Vizcaya-luxury condos currently being built). If you are a golfer, you have the option of playing a one public golf course and 4 private golf clubs. Taxes have always been an issue in West Orange. However, you will find affordable homes, condos and townhomes. What other town can you find all of the features listed above? If you like experiencing the four seasons, I would recommend West Orange as a place to live.
