City Guide
Watchung
Moving to Watchung

The nice setting the valley is in makes it a desirable locale, and that translates to more competition for places to live in Watchung. If planning to move here, the better your preparation, the better your results will be. Start with a list of your best choices, and work through it until you find the optimal fit for your budget and living needs. Be prepared to provide information for a thorough credit check and to be asked for first and last months' rent. Once you find an apartment, don't hesitate to sign the lease.

Watchung Neighborhoods

Deciding where to live in Watchung is as easy as checking out the two neighborhoods and seeing which one is right for you.

South Valley: The main street running through the center of the borough is Highway 527, which is Valley Road in the north and Mountain Boulevard in the southern part of the borough. In the south, you will also find Twin Brooks Golf Course and the tennis courts at the south end of Watchung Lake. Just past the golf course, you will find condos for rent.

North Valley: On the north end of town are more large homes on big lots. While it might be possible to find a few premier apartments, it's primarily single-family homes here.

Living in Watchung

If you are lucky enough to call this charming little borough home, you will have access to all the great things such a huge metropolitan area has to offer while still being able to enjoy the slower pace living here provides. Lots of trees and green space, walking and biking trails, and easy access to transportation routes makes it an ideal locale.

Hungry, but don't want to mess up the pristine kitchen in your new apartment just yet? Head to Water and Wine Ristorante for an upscale, lakeside dining experience. Want something a lot more casual? Watchung has a smattering of chain eateries, including Arby's, Wendy's, Five Guys Burgers and Fries, and Buffalo Wild Wings as well.
