CNN/Money Magazine named Madison one of the best small towns in America in 2011, and it's no wonder. With highly ranked public schools and universities, beautiful parks, history and culture and proximity to the city, and some of the lowest taxes in Morris County, there are so many reasons to make Madison your home.

In Madison, you’ll find a thriving downtown district with great places to dine and shop. The internationally known Shanghai Jazz Club offers world-class entertainment, and there are plenty of places to relax and unwind. Plus, this pedestrian-friendly town has so many picturesque places to explore, including beautiful parks and historic sites.

Madison is also home to Drew University, Fairleigh Dickinson and The College of Saint Elizabeth. There are lectures and visiting dignitaries; residents can take mini classes at the Free Public Library. There’s also the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, Playwright’s Theater of New Jersey, and the Museum of Early Trades and Crafts right in town.

Commuters will appreciate the direct train ride from Madison to Penn Station, NYC. There’s also plenty of accessible and affordable train and bus transportation if you prefer to leave the car at home.
