Ramsey, NJ is a great town! The town as a whole is health conscious, which I think is great! Children, parents and seniors are all active in one way or another. The schools, the churches, the town library as well as the town itself always have activities available for all. As a child in this town, you can enjoy tennis, golf, swimming, pee wee football, etc. Adults, enjoy the beauty of the town, biking, restaurants, share love of community as well as spending quality time with their children and neighbors. Seniors have many activities in church as well as town clubs. They volunteer and mentor to stay active and because they are respected in the community. Ramsey is a great place to live!

I have lived in Ramsey my entire life. It was a great, safe place to grow up. Main Street has all different types of shops, food, and services. There is great hair salons, nail salons, boutiques, diners, sandwich shops etc. Anything you need is within a 5 minutes drive or walk! Awesome place to raise a family!
I grew up and Ramsey, NJ. I attended public school k-12. The school system prepared me for college. The transition from high school to college academically has not been too difficult because I took rigorous courses in high school. The high school offers so many different activities both in the arts, sciences, and athletics. It's a great place to raise a family.
