Jamesburg is a quiet little town with a beautiful downtown area. There is a wonderful park, dog park, and wooded area with hiking trails. The downtown area has wonderful restaurants and an old-timey feel. Nestled in Monroe, Jamesburg is a great place to live!

This is a great little town with nothing but potential. In the past few years, the schools have gotten so much better!
This is a small town with not much to do. one side of town is cute, older homes, while the other is a bit more run down with older homes that have not been maintained well. There are a few local shops, but a lot of storefronts on the main drag are empty. It is affordable to live here, however, and close enough to the turnpike that commuting isn't difficult. There is also a very nice little park.
