the housing is nice, expensive and big. I wouldn't choose to live here again because of the cost but the town is quaint, just needs more restaurants.

I prefer a different climate with more beach and sunshine but a change in weather may be a nice change too.

I've visited many areas in New Jersey, and Mullica Hill is definitely the best. The community is really nice, it has very nice schools (Clearview, Pleasant Valley Elementary School), the crime is incredibly low, and overall everyone is active.
There are many employment opportunities in this area. The jobs are fair and the provide a fair amount of salary. For extreme paying jobs however, you would need to go to a city such as Philadelphia.
