Scenic Sussex County is New Jersey’s gateway to both New York and Pennsylvania due to its northwestern location. Sussex County has a distinctive rural flavor with farms, lakes, rivers, mountains, golf courses, campgrounds and wide open spaces. As the northernmost county in New Jersey, it is somewhat cooler than other parts of the state. Twenty four municipalities cover the 521 square miles of scenic Sussex County.
The Sussex County Chamber of Commerce seeks balanced growth by increasing business and employment opportunities within the county while preserving the quality of life that attracts many residents to the area.
Major transportation routes to other employment centers include Routes 206, 94, 15, 183, and 565. These transportation routes allow residents to enjoy the rural and suburban beauty of their homes and neighborhoods but still have relatively easy access to their work place and shopping centers. The Town of Newton is the county seat and the home of Newton Medical Center and Sussex County Community College.
The annual New Jersey State Fair is held at the Sussex County Fairgrounds. It is a big attraction for many residents and tourists alike. Sussex County is also known for its ski resorts, 10 golf courses, and ample Bed and Breakfast lodgings.
Residential and business growth is steadily increasing although agriculture and tourism are integral parts of the Sussex County economy.
