Mullica Hill is a really nice town, the people are generally friendly and the area is very clean and green. I wouldn't mind living here again if I had to do it all over, but it is a rather small town. It's a short drive away from many useful places, however. We are just on the other side of the bridge to Philadelphia, and the Deptford Mall is not too far away either. The location is great. It's certainly not big or bustling, it's just a nice small suburban town with lots of farms in the area. It has been growing over the years, but hopefully we'll be able to keep the farms alive and well.

Good, very quiet and nice. More weathy people moving in which is bad for the farmers. They are building devlopments and ruining the land. Also, people are not so nice anymore.
This is an okay town, but not very diverse by socioeconomic or racial standards. It lacks a healthy rounded population, which can create a boring stagnant atmosphere.
