Unlike the towns in the surrounding area, Colts Neck, like its namesake, is full of open farms, forests and fields. Although the vast majority of the town is a very green rural-like environment, the towns surrounding Colts Neck are where the suburban-social life is; however, the air is clean, and on most nights, the sky is crystal clear with a view of the stars. The vast majority of the town's water supply is from underground aquifers and requires very little cleaning systems. So overall, the town is worth at least a visit to breathe in the fresh air and take in the open spaces.
As a high school student in Colts neck, im really happy with where I grew up. Colts Neck has a lot of the benefits of new jersey. Local hub areas like Asbury Park and Redbank are no more than a twenty minute drive away. For a family, Six Flags Theme Park is about a twenty minute / half hour drive and a lot of family beaches, while packed, offer enough entertainment for my childhood. The town it's self is nice for an upper middle class family and drives to several most nearby cities are a bit more than an hour.
