People come here all the time asking about what town they should move to and so many of us Jersey folk are only familiar with our own little section of the state.

So I thought it would be nice to know; what's so great about YOUR town? Are the prices or taxes low? Any great restaurants (big and small) that are worth a trip? Are the schools stellar? Are the people wonderful? What kinds of activities are their for families/singles/teens? Whatever you like I want to know about it

P.S. If you want to list the cons of your town that's fine but let's not start bashing towns we don't live in. Please no, XYZ town sucks, ABC is sooo much better.

My town is in Somerset County. What makes it stand out is it has a newly built, modern high school, one of the strongest public education systems in the state and virtually no crime.

There is no reason to live there unless you are raising children and need to send them to good schools.

my town is Cinnaminson/Riverton.. Great established town with excellent schools, no rental apartments.. all single homes.. older homes... well built...clean.. many new stores, everything you could ever want within 5 minutes. Not crowded so traffic is not bad at all. Taxes are low due to the fact that the schools and housing is older and stable. 10 minutes from the South Philly stadiums. Love it here..

Kudos for starting a positive leaning thread. I hope, most people will not only tend to point out good aspects but share some observations that are less than positive.

Port Norris?

I love my town's geographic location. It's halfway between Philly and Cape May. It's downtown is a ghetto, but it's getting better.

I'm in Hazlet and love it. Reasonable prices and taxes. People love their homes and take care of them. Great library system and nice police. Good access to Henry Hudson trail and highways. What the town itself is lacking it makes up for in the surroundings. Great parks, shopping, restaurants and the beach all just a very short drive.

My town has the largest man made lake in NJ. True on weekends in summer it can be a pain but once Monday arrives it's peaceful again
