Ocean Township is an amazing town! Very family friendly and right near the beach! As well as the amazing public schools. It is a perfect town for raising a family.
I love the school system in the High school and in Junior High. There are many small places to eat and go walk on the boardwalk. We are very close to the ocean and thats home for those of us who left the state .
