I am posting on behalf of some friends who may need to move out of NYC to the vicinity of Somerset, NJ, in order to be near family. They are city people and enjoying walking to do errands. They mentioned that Somerset doesn't have much of a walk-able area, so I thought I would ask here to see if there is a nice town within a 20 minute drive of Somerset where they could live and have some ability to walk to go shopping, etc.

This is an older couple with no young kids so they don't need to worry about schools. They pay about $1700 for a large 900 square foot apartment in NYC right now, and I imagine they'd like to keep to around that budget and would be looking for a similar amount of space. They would love to have a balcony or some outdoor space.

They do have one car and can drive around; it's just they prefer to have some walking options around them.

Thanks for any ideas!

Highland Park, Somerville, and a few small sections of New Brunswick come to mind.

Also, assuming they'll be visiting the City to see friends, etc. than Highland Park would give them easy access to the NJ Transit station in New Brunswick.

New Brunswick also offers a few theaters, a nice museum (Zimmerli) and interesting public lectures at Rutgers.
