One of the oldest continuously occupied counties in the United States, Somerset County was home to the first Dutch settlement in the state of New Jersey. From sprawling mansions to quaint pubs and farmhouses tucked into colorful landscapes, history buffs and outdoor enthusiasts alike will find a wealth of adventures waiting just a short drive from many of the hotels in Somerset.
A Somerset rental car gives you the freedom to linger as long as you like at the county's many attractions. Located just 35 miles west of Newark, NJ, the area is home to more than 200 species of birds. Look for birds of prey each autumn at Washington Valley Park Hawk Watch Area or listen to songbirds during the warm months at the Scherman-Hoffman Wildlife Sanctuary. At Duke Farms, you'll not only find birds for every season on its 2,700 undeveloped acres, but also educational exhibits and more than 30 miles of hiking, biking, and wheelchair-accessible trails. The farm doesn't have traditional farm animals, but you can drive your Somerset rental car to see llamas, horses, goats, and sheep at nearby Norz Hill Farm. They also host a farmer's market from spring through autumn. The National Register of Historic Places maintains an extensive list of historic sites in the county. Visit a car rental in Somerset and plan your route to take in any of the six dozen or so historic homes, businesses, and government buildings in the county. Among the oldest are the Abraham Staats House and Kirch-Ford-Terrell House, both dating back to the mid-1700s.
