Palmyra is a tiny town where families can grow. The schools are small, and everyone is involved in multiple organizations. Students connect one on one with almost all the staff. Because of how small the classes are, students gain an experience that only private schools offer. Notable alumni include Dr. Clarence B. Jones, Martin Luther King Jr's trusted lawyer and adviser. Besides the schools, Palmyra has a beautiful nature cove along the Delaware River and a newly renovated park. Additionally, with the NJ Transit Riverline in the center of town, there are connections to New York and Philadelphia. Because of these wonderful aspects, Palmyra teaches it's residents how to be individuals. I've lived in different towns, yet this small river town is unlike any place I've been. In this day of age, it's difficult to find a town where tradition and new ideas coexist. There aren’t many places that offer a small-town charm. Overall, Palmyra is a quaint community and an excellent place to live.

Palmyra is an amazing community with so many things to do. There's a weekly farmers market in the summers, a music festival in the fall, a halloween parade, an awesome tiny school district and the list goes on and on. Move here, you won't regret it.
Great little town, VERY involved group bringing up the downtown area. New parks being constructed in the next year. AWESOME community feel. The public transportation is insane. You can get to anywhere by train. The riverline takes you to (with transfers of course) to Atlantic City, NYC, Philadelphia. So convenient. I love it here.
