Sensational City of Somers Point NJ

Somers Point is the oldest settlement in Atlantic County NJ. It was settled in 1693 by John Somers. The city was know as Somers Plantation, Somers Ferry and Somerset Plantation. John's son Robert built the Somers Mansion at what is now known as Somers Point Circle and Shore Road. The mansion was built in the early 1700s and is now a tourist attraction.

Somers Point largest employer is Shore Medical Center. The city is primarily residential. Somers Point is approximately 10 miles SW of Atlantic City. Visitors might enjoy a break in the action of Atlantic City and experience a more laid back, nautical culture. Since this is a bay front community, there are many good restaurants and marinas. It's a perfect location for boating and fishing. It's also home to Assault on Patchong Creek, America's largest crabbing tournament. The best part is the after party, a barbecue with a pig roast, hot dogs, beer, soda and all the fixings for an awesome summer afternoon and evening.
