Weigh In - What is the best thing about living in New Jersey?

Weigh In - What is the best thing about living in New Jersey?

For a state that ranks 47th in size among the 50 states in the U.S., New Jersey sure is jam-packed with a vast variety of landscapes, cultures, entertainment options and more!

Here in Central New Jersey, we are  conveniently located in the heart of our great state. Not only are we comfortably nestled into our suburban homes a stoneís throw from the ocean, we are also fairly equidistant from the bustling metropolises of New York City, Philadelphia and Atlantic City, and the contrasting tranquility of the Appalachians. So, who better to  ask about the best thing about living in the Garden State than some of our own friendly faces out enjoying a day in Monmouth County?

No doubt you have planned, prepared, or already embarked on a family or friendís day out thatís chock-full of quality time this summer - even if itís just the simple pleasures of soaking up the rays at one of our fantastic  beaches, playing a round at a luxurious country club, or traveling to a local theme park. If not, perhaps you will be inspired by our responses to take advantage of some of the terrific options right at our fingertips that we are all guilty of taking for granted at times.

Many of our participants appreciate New Jerseyís diversity, both in demographics and ways to spend a day. From relaxing at one of our fine area parks or beaches, traveling for a day out in the city, partaking in our  exceptional cuisine, and everything in-between, people seem to agree that our native neighbors provide us  with great company and conversation. They love living here, and when you open your eyes and take a good  look around, itís easy to see why.


 




 

The closeness of the people here, and the ability to go for an entertaining night out no matter where you live  in Jersey.

Amy Morris, Red Bank

I enjoy the social environment that the beaches create. Itís hard to go there and not have a fun time.

Dennis C., Holmdel


The parks are a plus. Running is a large part of my life and there are plenty of trails along the beaches and in  the parks.

John Sierra, Middletown


The separation of nature and the cities. Weíre right in the middle, and you can visit both in the same day or  night.

Ian DíArcy, Holmdel




We like the beaches, but thereís more here than that. The parks are terrific, too. They each have their own  fast or slow pace. Itís perfect for everyone.

John DíArcy, Holmdel

I love that weíre in-between Philadelphia and New York City, but not just to travel there. I like to watch both  of their sports teams on TV too.

Sydel S., Manalapan



The fact that we can just take in nature. Whether itís at the beaches or in one of the parks, we have plenty of  options to unwind here.

Alex Christian, Holmdel
Thereís a great diversity of people here. We have a mixture of all cultures, and that creates a diverse amount  of restaurants, businesses, and conversations.

Tom Tizzio, Colts Neck

The beaches are my favorite thing about Jersey, specifically Pier Village. They have the best boardwalk and  beach around.

Melissa Patterson, Aberdeen



The best thing is being able to ride my motorcycle along the beachfront, and being able to go to an area diner  for a late-night snack.

Kuangyou Whang, Freehold



I enjoy how brightly green the parks are here, especially in the summertime.

I love coming to the parks and farms. When I have kids, Iím going to take them to Longstreet Farm.

The beaches are the best because you have so many entertainment options to have fun experiences with  your family.

Rich Mundy, Holmdel

I used to live in New York, and I like that the houses are more spread out. Itís just a slower, better, pace of life  than the city.

The food in NJ is some of the best in the country. We have a great selection of many diverse cuisines.

Stephen Matos, Manasquan
