Great schools, diverse community, very car-oriented so difficult to get around by biking or walking. Taxes are pricey in this part of New Jersey. Overall a great place to live!
The Edison Township is very safe and serene. There isn't much disturbance, and everyone is friendly. If you enjoy to walk in a semi-secluded area and want to live your dream suburban life, Edison is for you! The schools here are competitive, yet they help prepare you for real life. There are limited activities to do here, such as going to the mall and to the park; however, if you have a car, you should be fine to go to restaurants and other places nearby.
