I like living in the small town community. We all work to help each other out in times of need. Also it is close to the Delaware River so if you like boating, fishing or key skiing it is a good place.

Honestly, I never really enjoyed where I live. From the time I moved to my area of South Jersey, I was looking to get out. To get out of the area and New Jersey all together, it is over crowded, expensive, and very few remote places to get away. The actually shores are great, if you get away from Seaside and the boardwalks, and very North Jersey/Delaware Water Gap area is beautiful, but I like my space and would be happier living elsewhere.
Many people stay here for generations, friendly, know eachother.
