Upper Township is a beautiful little town just outside of Ocean City. It's safe and quiet, and offers a good school system. It doesn't offer any nightlife activities, such as clubs, but it's close proximity to Ocean City allows you a quick route to the beach and family friendly fun like Gillian's Wonderland water park and Castaway Cove theme park on the boardwalk. I've lived here all my life and even if I complain about how it gets very slow in the fall and winter, it's still a wonderful place.

I've lived in Upper Township for 10 years. The overall township is clean, friendly, and friendly. I've enjoyed residing in Upper Township throughout my teenage and young adult life.
I like how everything is close driving distances wise and there are plenty of jobs. Something that could change is education learning about real life issues and ways that we can grow up learning about the real world
