Does the thought of leaving the City cause an ache in the pit of your stomach while images of mini vans dance in your head? Take a deep breath.  The bus and train to NYC are within walking distance, but we think we might be able to save you the fare.

How about a night out at the movies? In Upper Montclair, there’s the Bellevue theater that plays all of the big budget Hollywood movies. The Clairidge Theater shows the latest "indie" flicks.  Our newest venue, the Wellmont Theater, features major attractions such as, Steely Dan, Rufus Wainwright and Bill Maher, just to name a few..

Prefer your theater live? Montclair's Luna Stage has three intimate theaters where you can see anything from award-winning plays featuring acclaimed actors to first-runs put on by local up-and-comers.

Maybe its live music that tickles you fancy? We have all varieties. At Outpost in the ‘Burbs famous folkies bring their music to town every week.

Yogi Berra Stadium hosted a variety of fantastic outdoor events this year; from a slew of “Single A” professional ball games, to a great classic car show, to a live country/rock show with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson.

Or you might just want to relax with some coffee and the paper, Café Eclectic has comfy couches to accommodate you, and in the evening there are poetry readings or a musical performance.

If the only haunts you habituate are trendy shops, we have plenty of them here. Whether you’re hunting  Stickley chairs or Eames sofas, Bloomfield Avenue provides a variety of possible stops. Then there’s always the quest for a perfect pair of jeans. You can begin at The Gap and work your way to the height of jean couture at Ruby on Church Street. Feather boas to ermine coats, Craftsman to crafts, Montclair can indulge your preference.

Hip to higher learning? Stop by Montclair State University. Borrow some books from the library, enroll in some courses or just drop by the Red Hawk Diner for some university chat.

All this and more at your Montclair front door!
