Absecon is a beautiful little town. You can go down Faunts Landing road and drop your boat off the dock, fish or crab there. During the 4th of July it is an amazing spot to watch all the fireworks from Atlantic City. It is also a beautiful place to watch the sunset/sunrise. It is a very safe place to live and raise children. I love my little quiet, quaint, serene town of Absecon.
Review Absecon
Absecon is a quaint town, but very little to offer for nightlife alternatives and recreational activities.
Housing in my town varies. There are houses, town houses, apartments, and hotels. The houses range from mansion-sized to one bedroom. Absecon is divided by a highway. The nicer houses are on the north side town, and the smaller houses, apartments and hotel residencies are on the south side. The only crime in Absecon is on the south side. There are not many vacant houses, only occasionally.
