Morris County Summer Walking Tours Return on June 25 through August 13, costing $25 per person.

A new series of outdoor heritage walking tours will begin around Morristown on June 25 and run to August 13, according to the Morris County Tourism Bureau.

There are four thematic tours that highlight the people, events, and architecture of Morristown, originally settled around 1715.

Each tour lasts between 45 and 60 minutes, and costs $25 per person; pre-registration and pre-payment are required.

This year there is a special new add-on to the tours. Each tour participant will receive a $10 Morristown Partnership Gift Certificate which can be redeemed at nearly 200 Morristown businesses including restaurants and retailers.

“We are happy to partner with the Morris County Tourism Bureau this year on their very popular Historic Walking Tours and share their enthusiasm to promote Morristown’s historical and cultural significance,” said Jennifer Wehring, executive director of the Morristown Partnership. “The added value in Morristown Partnership gift certificates will not only be appreciated by walking tour visitors, but also by our participating downtown businesses who will welcome the increased foot traffic.”
Carol Barkin, Manager of Heritage Programming for the Morris County Tourism Bureau, remarked that the “financial incentive provided by the Morristown Partnership creates an attractive package for visitors. We are grateful for the support of the New Jersey Historical Commission and the New Jersey Department of State, Division of Travel and Tourism.”
