Basking Ridge is one of the beautiful four sections of the 24.5 square miles that comprise historic Bernards Township. It is conveniently nestled in the lush, verdant landscape of Somerset County and combines old-world charm, historical architecture, and acres of inspiring natural wonders with sophisticated shopping spots, a vibrant arts scene, plenty of golf and a dynamic business community with easy access to New York City, Newark Liberty International Airport, as well as other major metropolitan areas.

Basking Ridge is home to Verizon’s enormous corporate headquarters; the Lyons V.A. Medical Center, Barnes & Noble College Booksellers and adjoining golf course; an arts center in an 18th-century farmhouse.

Attractions include the highly rated school system, the wide range of housing options, and lower tax rates
