Watchung Biography

About Watchung

As thousands of cars pass through Watchung along Routes 22 or 78 every day, travelers may be unaware of the borough’s hidden natural beauty. This six-square mile town in Somerset County is situated along two ridges of the Watchung Mountain range, giving homes on the upper ridges bucolic views of the countryside, or in some cases, the New York skyline about 25 miles east. Minutes from the highways, the rustic views are a steep contrast to the asphalt and exit signs. Scenery consists of winding roadways, running streams and leafy forests set amid gentle hillsides. Two lakes in town, Lake Watchung and Best Lake, add to the serene atmosphere.

With a population of approximately 5,600 people, Watchung is about a 30-minute car trip to Newark International Airport or 40 minutes to New York City.
