Welcome to Edison
Edison Township is located in central New Jersey and spans 32 square miles through the Raritan Valley Region. Home to over 100,000 residents, Edison is named for Thomas Edison, who had his laboratory in Menlo Park, which is now Edison State Park. Rich in history and diversity, Edison is a large, suburban community with many things to do, see, and experience across all four corners of the expansive township.
Originally home to the Lenape Native American people, Edison was settled by the Europeans in the 17th century and has since been the fastest-growing community in New Jersey ever since. With more than 75 different communities from all over the world living in Edison, it is a melting pot of cultures and cuisines. For the best breakfast in town, visit Le Peep for generous servings and abundant flavors. Menu items at Le Peep include banana bread waffles, gooey English muffins broiled with brown sugar, cinnamon, and almonds, and a spinach and pesto panini.
For an upscale evening, make a reservation at Season 52, the premier destination for incredible seasonal dishes and 52 wines by the glass. The menu features 100% fresh ingredients with most meals crafted on an oak-fire grill or brick oven. LouCas brings high-energy and bold flavors of Italy to Edison residents. Focused on quality seafood meals, LouCas is open for lunch and dinner and is one of the most popular locations for banquets and special events.
If you’re craving Asian-inspired fare, make a reservation at the contemporary Sushi O Asian Bistro for impeccable sushi creations and fresh Asian meals.
Since Edison is such a large community, there is no shortage of things to do and experience. If you enjoy games, visit Top Golf, Edison’s premier entertainment destination offering virtual golf “bays,” a sports bar and restaurant, and a beautiful rooftop terrace. If you’re looking to get out in nature, Edison has several centrally located parks to explore, like Roosevelt Park, the oldest park in Middlesex County. Go for a run around the picturesque lake, hike through the trails, and attend a Play-in-the-Park held in the amphitheater during the summer.
