Welcome to Middlesex County! Middlesex County is not only at the
intersection of the region, but also at the intersection of unique
elements that come together to create an extraordinarily rich place
to live, work and visit. From quiet rural towns to vibrant city centers,
the county’s 25 distinct municipalities offer ideal places appealing to a
myriad of interests.
The Discover Middlesex Travel Guide is designed to provide you with a
sampling of the exciting opportunities our county has to offer.
While you’re here, you can spend an afternoon at Rutgers, the State
University of New Jersey, where you can enjoy a Big Ten football game.
You can also enjoy shopping in our downtowns, or dining at our diverse
array of restaurants. You can experience our history by visiting the
Thomas Edison Center at Menlo Park, where Thomas Edison invented
the light bulb and obtained 300 patents, or by visiting East Jersey Old
Town, a living history village devoted to our rich heritage.
Perhaps you’d like to spend time exploring our parks and open space?
Our Freeholder Board is proud to have acquired thousands of acres
of open and farmland preserved space across our county. Enjoy one
of our 32 active parks and preserved conservation areas that provide
opportunities for sporting, birding, fishing, and more. Walk along
the Middlesex County Greenway, a beautiful trail connecting Edison,
Metuchen, and Woodbridge. In the summer, come out to the Capestro
Theatre at Roosevelt Park where you can see one of our famous Plays
in the Park, bringing Broadway-caliber musical theater to Middlesex
There is something for everyone here in Middlesex County. You can
always learn more by visiting DiscoverMiddlesex.com. Thank you for
