Victoria Carter Town Guides: Summit
The City of Summit has approximately 22,000 residents, yet manages to maintain a cozy, small town feel. Beautiful homes grace tree-lined streets and include colonials, Tudors, Victorians and Cape Cod styles. The vibrant downtown is charming and walkable with great shops, restaurants, bars, cafes and a village green. Also a convenient commuter hub, residents have easy access to New York City on the Midtown Direct train line.
The Summit school district is one of the best in the state, and residents enjoy the town’s many cultural and recreational options. For the arts, there is the Summit Playhouse, Dreamcatcher Repertory Theater and the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey. Outdoors, there are 70 acres of open spaces including Briant Park with a paved mile running loop and the Reeves-Reed Arboretum. The Arboretum is known for its daffodil and rose gardens plus numerous winding trails.
Throughout the summer, there is a popular farmer’s market on Sunday with a multitude of fresh fruits, vegetables and specialty dishes. The town also has movies on the green, street festivals and running races throughout the year. Read More
