Branchburg Township Reviews

3 reviews
This is the most enjoyable place to live! Its quiet yet full of things to do near by. Every summer we have an annual hot air balloon festival and we get to see the hot air balloons flying over our neighberhood. Raritan College is near by and has play and a planetarium. Dukes estate offers wonderful scenes to take in. We have a farm close by that has pumpkin picking and a haunted trail. Every season there is always something to do.
Review Branchburg Township
This area is a very quiet, peaceful and safe neighborhood. It is great place to raise children in and I could not picture growing up anywhere else. While this area is very spread out and a car is needed to get most places it is great for outdoor activities such as biking, running and hiking. I believe that this area will be the home to many new families in the future
Since this is a smaller town there is very little crime but when there is an emergency the police are usually arrive very quickly. I have noticed police presence throughout my time in living in my neighborhood.
