My favorite time of year in Morris County and Somerset Hills has always been the Fall. With tons of family friendly activities to keep those kiddos entertained there is surely something for everyone in the family to enjoy! We’ve rounded up a list of local Fall activities in our 2023 Fall Fun Guide, presented by The Pool Boss, to make sure you don’t miss anything on your Fall bucket list! If you didn’t already know, The Pool Boss, is New Jersey’s Premier Pool Builder and can work with you to create a backyard oasis that fits your family’s needs and style. Plus FALL is the perfect time to start planning for Summer!
