It’s huge. It’s hard to give it one solid rating because the northern and southern parts are so different. I live in south howell and it’s a lot more farmland and overall quieter; I like it a lot better than north howell. The schools are great, and the administration cares so much about the students. They also have a lot of good recreational sports opportunities. Rt 9 runs through the town, and we’re right next to the parkway, so traveling just about anywhere is easy enough. We’re also 20 mins max from the beach!!

Not much to do in the town, but very close to the beach. In driving distance from New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington DC. Most people are friendly. The high school is founded on racist backings (mascot is supposed to be a confederate and had a confederate flag painted on the side of the school at one point). The town is overall a conservative town despite being in a blue state.
I really enjoy feeling safe in my town, I feel like that's number one with everything. The few times something had occurred, I always felt safe calling the police. The diversity isn't that diverse but I've noticed a lot of people seem to be related and family so maybe that's why. It's very family-friendly here and everyone is always sticking together which is what I like the most.
