I’ve lived here for 17+ years since I married my husband. We have 4 kids and all 4 are going through the public schools. It’s a safe, diverse, active town with good people. The bike path and the pedestrian side of the bridge to Ocean City are some of our favorite destinations for biking. We love our church, and all of the activities that are involved in the town throughout the year. We are very thankful to live in Somers Point.

Somers Point, NJ is a nice town located only 2 miles from Ocean City, NJ and only a few miles from Atlantic City, NJ. It has almost everything that you need it food stores within a mile or two from almost anywhere you live in the town. It has nice town bars to enjoy your nights, and plenty of restaurants as well. The winters are a little bit slower than it is in the summer, but that is natural because almost all of south jersey is a tourist location for the summer.
The overall experience of Somers Point New jersey, as first known as Somerset Plantation is a very small savvy town. You can tell this by the fact that at a time there was 4 Wawas, just 10 miles away from Atlantic city; which doesn't have any Wawa stores. Somers Point has 3 different elementary schools, with 7 big apartment complexes spread throughout the town. The town has a football team named the sharks that I cheered for from taxi to varsity. With everything and then some there are two main shopping centers with stores such as shoprite, acme, kmart, 5 below, dollar general, pet smart, starbucks, applebees and many more. If i had to do it all over again I would choose to live here again, because you aren't too far from anything needed. Somers Point has a very low crime rate compared the city of AC just 10 miles away. With a small bay area, a big park named after JFKennedy and the parkway easily accessible to the public; What Somers Point is missing is more activities for the children such as an arcade, or an indoor place to express skills just as painting or tech savvy acknowledgement. There is an annual Bay fest that has activities for all ages so i feel in the future the town will come together to create something that last all year round.
