Let Them Entertain Yo

One thing you will not have to worry about in Parsippany is boredom. There are several state-of-the-art multiplex theaters in the city showing the latest and greatest movies. Nearby Newark has a large indoor concert venue with plenty of seats and food choices. If you would rather be the one on set than sitting in a theater, sign up for acting classes at the local acting studio. To top it all off, a funplex with arcade games, laser tag, and go-karts is also just a show drive away. Head to Comedy Night when you need some laughs.

A Day at the Park

Grab your beloved canine and head to the dog park for an afternoon of running and playing fetch. Nearby Morristown is waiting if you would like to walk through hundreds of fragrant plants at an arboretum. Wooden benches line the walkways in Parsippany parks, so you can sit down for a few minutes and enjoy the sun and the breeze stirring the air. Some parks have live music concerts for little or no cost during the summer months. With all the parks in and around the city, you will always have plenty of fresh, wide open space.

Chicken to Cheesecake

Fans of local delis will have plenty of good eats and few complaints here with specials as a grilled chicken ranch Panini at Vitale's Delicatessen. Groove to the sounds of live jazz music at Fu Sha Sushi Bar while you sample delicious salmon crunch sushi.
