The epitome of small-town life. Though there are few commercial spaces, most of the shops are family-owned and have been that way for generations. Very close to the beach, but without the tourists.

Linwood is only good if you are rich and white. Anyone else, anyone who isn't like the rest of them isn't welcomed. My neighbor on the right side constantly trespasses in our backyard over ivy and my other neighbor physically assaulted me because my dog peed on the pole in front of my house, not his. The cops don't do anything and prefer to profile people then protect them, the schools instill a "if you aren't number one you are last", and they get away with it because the town is rich. The only good things about Linwood is that it is very safe.
Excellent hometown with excellent schools. A bikepath safely connects the town with schools, athletic field, and shopping.
