Nice little town, between East Brunswick and North Brunswick. Not much going on, quiet downtown with only a few local businesses, safe for raising a family, and nice for outdoor enthusiasts. Most neighbors know each other, but community is not as diverse as nearby North Brunswick or South Brunswick. Location is ideal for commuters as township is close to all major highways.

Milltown was a wonderful little town to grow up in, but I feel as if it is too small to stay there after college. However, many people do and it does seem to be a tight-knit, close community. Very family friendly with wonderful teachers and cute parks.
I grew up in Milltown. It's cute, it's quaint, it's tiny. But it's also expensive, the public schools are... okay, and there is very little diversity. If you're looking for quintessential New Jersey small town, this is 100% what you're looking for.
