Atlantic Highlands Reviews

9 reviews
All Categories
Atlantic Highlands is your typical small town. Walking down the main street is a reunion. It has a charm about it that can make anyone feel like they are at home. Being 5 minutes from the beach, we get a nice ocean breeze at night in the summer. The ferry that runs out of the harbor is a 40 minute ride to Manhattan, New York. There is no place I would rather live.
The area I grew up in is a small town. I know all the kids I went to school with, which is very nice. You feel as though you didn't get lost in the shuffle. New Jersey has the reputation of being very expensive to live in. So, I would rather seek a much cheaper state to live for my future, unless New Jersey changes, I would like to stay here.
Housing is really top-knotch, but can be very pricy.
