Point Pleasant has been a lovely town to grow up in. It is small and extremely safe. We have a low crime rate and we have a tight bond as a community. Living just minutes away from the beach has also been a blessing. It’s nice to say that I live where other people go to for vacation! In the summer, the streets are packed with children on bikes, families walking their dog, and cars filled with tourists coming down for the weekend. It is a bustling little town in the summer months, since we live right near the Jenkinson’s boardwalk and miles of beautiful beach! I’m very lucky to have grown up here and hope to raise my future family here, as well.

...the beaches, the boardwalk, the endless family oriented activities (kite nights, sand castle contests, pirate rides on the river), nightly events for adults (comedy clubs, local concerts, pub crawls on bikes), health conscious living (biking, paddle boarding,surfing, organic take out, poke bowls, açaí bowls), a feeling that you are removed from The rush of NYC, the Boro has some of the most beautiful, secluded living on the bay. However, note- most people have lived here their “entire lives,” or they are from neighboring beach towns and this is their dream town. Most do have some money, but lack education, culture and diversity, and ultimately life experience. They are friendly but keep to their circles and to their conservative ideals. I see the children of immigrant families struggle here. This is a small beach town that made some big money but were never exposed to anything bigger than themselves.
Point Pleasant is a beautiful shore town with plenty of fun things for all ages. Theres the boardwalk, the beach, rides and arcades, nightclubs, fine dining, and shops. Point Pleasant is a perfect place for day trips and a great place to bring families. The town has a wonderful atmosphere and every resident is very welcoming. It is truly a great town to grow up in!
