Great school system, safe neighborhoods, wonderful residents. Family-friendly restaurants, and amazing sights at the Barnegat Docks. I have lived here for most of my life, and I can truly say that there is no place like home. Barnegat will forever be home to me!

Barnegat Township is a very large town that has a lot of diversity. To improve I think that the town needs more shops and restaurants, updated grocery stores, improved low income housing, and the roads need to be paved. Also a new park would be nice, and the trails need to be kept up better.
Nice town to live in. Friendly and quiet. Outside of Settlers Landing, housing modern and by NJ standards affordable. Near water, off parkway and geared toward families. Overall I enjoy living here.
