Pretty decent town with a ton to do and a lot of school options around. Only real issues are jobs are sort of light unless you work retail or food service, but plenty of those which is great for college and high school kids
We moved here in a family friendly neighborhood, one neighbor was very nosey but besides great for a family, when we first moved here it wasnt much kids in the neighborhood, we lived in Vineland for 10years now you hear the laughter of children and children knocking on the door to ask can my kids come out and play they at the bus stop together talking its so awesome; but where good things are going bad things find there way in to the smallest cracks to try to break mommas backs.
I think the Vineland Public Schools provide great education. I would like to see more funding put into academics.
I grew up in Vineland. Always a good place to raise a family. It's a small town, but not too far from fun places like Atlantic City or Philadelphia.
Quiet city. Suburban lifestyle. Car needed. Cute diners. Great school system. Not too far from Philly, NYC, or Atlantic City. Ethnically diverse.
More safety. More educational modifications and less politics. Love Landis Ave for families, shopping, and outdoor activities like car shows. Real estate options are varied and affordable for all types of families.
Vineland is a seriously flawed city. The problems stretch far and high. The local government needs a serious overhaul before anything else is changed. This city has immense potential to become the hub of South Jersey.
Overall, pretty boring. There isn't much to do. If you want to go out with friends on a Friday night your main options are basically the movies or Drive-in (something Vineland does have going for it one of the few drive-ins left) and Applebees. Some parts of town can get a little sketchy too.
It's okay, not many store or places to eat. A lot of the stores to go to do not last, they eventually go out of business.
I love vineland. Friendly people. There is a lot of diversity. The jobs are average but its not far away from major cities like Philadelphia or Atlantic city.
Small town feel!! A lot of shopping and Dining in area. Close to South Jersey Beaches. Healthcare system in area is good.
I wish there were more recreational centers for young adults in this area. Besides a couple of places to go out and breathe some fresh air, there are not many places where middle and high school students can get together to have fun and socialize, such as going to a bowling alley or to an arcade.
I like the historical aspect of Vineland, but as time progresses, it slowly fades. Most buildings have been destroyed or became vacant. Additionally, there is no "family-friendly" activities to do here. The mall needs MAJOR upgrades and more things to do. Forced to drive 30-45 minutes away to enjoy a day outside.
My fiance and I have recently moved here and I must say, it is a true joy. Vineland offer lots of shopping locations and restaurants. It is a short commute to anything you need.
I noticed living here for only 6 years that the community is not friendly. People are rude. The town is very dirty. Children's playgrounds are dirty with gang graffiti. I have had things stolen from my backyard, car, front porch, and I do not feel safe living here. I have two small children and I do not want them growing up in this community.
Vineland is a very quiet and peaceful city to live in, depending on where you are located. Although it is one of the biggest cities in size in South Jersey, it still seems like such a small world since almost all the locals know each other or have been to school together. It is a great place to raise your family and the schools here are great, offering lots of extracurricular activities to keep the students busy and reach for their highest potential and also programs to help both students and parents find the best educational tools for their children no matter what the needs are.
Quiet, small town feel with several shops and restaurants to visit. About 45 minutes drive time to beaches, Atlantic City, Philadelphia and Delaware. Lots of activities and nightlife surrounding the area if a drive is not minded.
