Cranbury Township Reviews

Its a small town that is relaxed and surrounded by farm lands. Its located right off of Route 130 and has plenty of family run businesses. Its location is in Central Jersey, so it is fairly easy to go to New York or Philadelphia without many issues.

Living in my neighborhood and my town, it's safe. I've never felt unsafe and always felt I had a home. But, having said that I live on the outskirts of town and have very few neighbors and none around my age. Cranbury is a very small farm Town and very little things to do. There is one street, two blocks, on main street where there are a few restaurants or bagel houses. Besides this and a small park by the lake there aren't many things to do around town. Often times we go to other towns such as princeton, because our high school is there and there are more things for us to do.
It has a small town feel but is still close enough to major cities and other towns to not feel isolated. Very nice people and very safe. A bit stifling for older children/teenagers.
