Get around[edit]

The town is small in area. It is possible to walk to parts of Scotch Plains, but to get much further, a car or at least a bike will be essential.


The old train station - which is still on the platform where trains stop every day - is a notable sight, and there are also pretty houses in the area. The old station, built in 1874, is open from 2-4 PM on the first Sunday of every month in the guise of a museum and, otherwise, is viewable from the outside.
