MORRIS COUNTY, NJ – The Morris County Tourism Bureau is celebrating National Tourism Week by launching a free, digital walking tour app and a new video welcoming visitors back to the area.
The short video salute features several local business owners who are open and ready to get back to pre-COVID-19 levels of service. They include museums, attractions and restaurants who are expanding days and hours of operation and offering special meals and deals.
The Bureau also has released its new digital walking tour app which is available wherever you get your apps. The app, called “Morristown Walking Tour and Beyond,” provides information, photos and audio clips for 27 historic sites within downtown Morristown and in the County of Morris. The app is free. You can also view the app in your browser.
