A drive through Rumson reveals one of New Jersey’s most picturesque neighborhoods – a showcase of grand waterfront estates, turn-of-the-century carriage houses, restored beach cottages, and new construction mindful of tradition. Tree-lined roads bend toward tranquil waters where residents enjoy riverfront dining, town parks, and a municipal boat slip. Located at the eastern end of the Rumson Peninsula and flanked by the Navesink and Shrewsbury rivers, there are only a handful of ways in and out of town. Via the Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge (currently scheduled for reconstruction), Rumson residents are minutes from pristine shores and exclusive beach clubs. The borough’s reputation for significant architectural and landscape design has attracted attention since the late 1800s. Don your tennis whites at one of Rumson’s iconic institutions, the Seabright Lawn Tennis and Cricket Club. Founded in 1877, it is the oldest lawn tennis club and cricket club in the United States and was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1995. Rumson promises more than a pretty face – “NJ Monthly” ranks it the 13th “Best Place to Live in New Jersey.” The same publication ranks Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School, a Blue Ribbon School, 10th in the state, and Number One in Monmouth County.
