Not all of New Jersey is industrial or congested, I have found a piece of Jersey that is paradise for a number of reasons. Millville is located at the bottom of the state, and nothing like north Jersey near the NYC border.
What I love about living in Millville is I can get to Philadelphia in minutes, or take advantage of the best beaches on the Jersey shore. Wildwood and Cape May beaches are not only stunning, they are far less crowded with tourists like you see in Seaside or Point Pleasant. If we need a night of gambling, dining, and dancing, historic Atlantic City is a few miles away.
The best areas in Millville include stunning parks, amazing theaters, and stellar museums. The food in this region of Jersey is exceptional, and we can drive to fine dining in Delaware or Pennsylvania in a few hours. Millville is tucked away from crowded interstates, yet easily accessible to all the major roads if we need to escape for a day.
