    Beachwood Reviews

    I recently moved to Beachwood from South Toms River, a neighboring town. Beachwood is so beautiful, my family and I take walks near the water every night. I feel much safer in Beachwood.
    Review Beachwood
    Beachwood is a great family oriented place. I grew up around here and enjoyed the activities for the kids, close schools and events.
    The town itself is small and residential consisting of middle class citizens. However, because of it's location there is easy acess to a variety of activities that make the Jersey shore so popular.
