Mays Landing is a welcoming and diverse area supporting a great education for kids. Stores and restaurants are all very close together. This is a nice community for families or single people. Very close to Stockton Univerity and 30 min from the shore!
Just like my mom and grandparents, I was born and raised here in Mays Landing. The whole town in great, but what I love most is Lake Lenape. Being a coxswain on my high schools crew team and being so close to the lake, I spend everyday of my spring there practicing and racing. I also have worked as a Lifeguard at Lake Lenape for 3 years. Lake Lenape is such a wonderful aspect of our already historic, loving, and authentic town.
