When you drive into Medford Lakes you turn back the clock to a time when neighbors were close friends, kids ride their bikes to school, streets were safe, residents gladly volunteered to help in school and town initiatives, and if kids get into mischief their parents march them down to apologize and make them clean up their mess. On top of that everyone has access to private beaches in an idyllic lake setting which makes coming home after work feel like you’re on vacation. There are big events every year, too, a favorite is the Canoe Carnival which sports large floats paddled around the lake which are more like Disney on a Lake - amazing structures with sound systems, stage lighting, dancers and special effects all balanced by engineers on two long canoes. Everyone is friendly and you can walk to a row of shops that are housed in log cabins. This town should be rated much higher than Niche rates it.

Medford Lakes is a wonderful place to grow up in! It is a close knit community and a great place to raise a family. Their summer camp is a lot of fun and great experience as a counselor. It is a very safe community as well.
Medford Lakes is a picture-esqe, suburban town. It is full of beautiful foliage and a lot of white people. It's not too far from Philadelphia or the shore. It's not a very progressive place, though, and fairly isolationist in its politics.
