Ocean County Reviews
I've grown up here and in Monmouth County. Ocean County is more affordable, yet still family friendly.
I currently live in Toms River. It is a family friendly town. I like the school my children go to but wish there was more technology in the classroom. There are many job opportunities nearby. There are many places to shop and eat. It is very convenient in the summer to be near the beach and boardwalk.
Like every town it has its issues, but the Lakewood Police Department is very responsive. In my personal neighborhood, I feel safer now that Jewish families are moving in.
