New Jersey offers 130 miles of beaches, many nestled in seaside towns with boardwalks, seafood restaurants, and amusement parks.
Fun fact... New Jersey is the country's most densely populated state. Despite that, 70% of New Jersey's municipalities have a population under 15,000. The towns have a wonderful vibe, charming main streets, and tasty diners.
New Jersey was recently (July 2021) ranked the #1 state to live in. This was based on several important factors, including #4 lowest crime rate, access to nature, affordability, education, and health care.
New Jersey offers the dual benefit of access to what many call the world's greatest city (NYC) without the hefty rent/mortgage expense.
