I live and work in Neptune. My children go to the public schools and are earning a great education. The special education services are excellent. Although Neptune has high taxes, the cost is relative to the surrounding towns. We are located by the beach which allows for many recreational activities, especially in the warmer weather!

Neptune has a bad reputation but there are parts that are quite charming. There is a lot of new construction going up and I believe it will improve the aesthetic of the town and attract more beach goers. The Jersey Shore Outlets also reside here so shopping is always close by with outlet prices. Nothing is too far away with Walmart, Shop Rite, Home Depot, Walgreens and many other store within 5 minute drive.
Well I would to start by saying I was born and raised in Neptune, also graduated from Neptune Senior High. I love living in Neptune Township, it is so pleasant town, with nice people and neighbors. Mostly homeowners live in Neptune, and when they pass away the house is usually left to the children and then they raise their families in the same house they grew up in. I love living in Neptune, the crime rate is not as high in the neighboring cities. I pride living in Neptune and I made sure my son graduated from Neptune.
