Atlantic County Reviews

Atlantic County is a great place to raise a family and is close to shopping. Many of the smaller towns hold events for families throughout the year. The real estate market is below average in comparison to other similar areas in the country. The schools are great. They offer a wide variety of programs to the students, including after school tutoring and sports. I would like to see more diversity in some of the communities. There is a bit of noticeable segregation in some of the towns. Crime rate is very low in most places.

What I like most about Atlantic County is its diversity. I enjoy being able to meet people from all different backgrounds. This has helped to give me better insight on the many great cultures that live in America. It has also opened my mind to different ways of thinking. People here usually have great personalities, but the youth could use some help from their parents. What I hate most about Atlantic County is the abundance of violence, drug use, and overall disrespect for fellow man. Casinos are the best and worst things to ever happen to Atlantic county.
What I like about Atlantic County is the fact that everything is convenient such as going to the mall, the movies, food shopping, etc...
