Been here for over 15years and am very happy with the community, the neighborhood, the parks and shopping areas. When our family visits, and when our grandchildren stay with us, there is plenty of places to take them. We are near many different shore areas from Ocean City, Asbury Park, Atlantic City and one of our favorites, Wildwood.

Being a resident of LEH has been ----- for me. I attended the public schools from kindergarten through High School. The education I received has paved theway for me attend a four year University in which I feel I am very qualified. During my school career I participated in various community events including Hooked On Fishing not Drugs, was Mayor for a day, Habitat for Humanity, was a member of the Municipal Alliance Committee, and served as an assistant Minister for my church. Growing up in LEH has given me a sense of community and family.
LEHT is a quiet town with rich history and generations of family roots. We are fortunate to have access to Atlantic City, Philadelphia, NYC, and the Shore without spending a day of travel. The community is very tight-knit and you're bound to bump into someone you know in any local store!
