When it comes to living in Ventnor City, NJ, it's not all good and it's not all bad. Let me start off with one of the best points: the crime rate here is very low. I don't know about you, but to me, that's a kind of important thing. As for the schools, the job and housing markets, the community as a whole, I have to say that the rest is just "ok". It's not one of the best areas in New Jersey to live in, but it's certainly not one of the worst. The people who live here are friendly and nice, which is what really makes a community, and there are some pretty interesting things to do and see, like the Atlantic City Boardwalk, The AC Seafood Festival, the Ventnor Cultural Arts Center, and the Heart Revolution Yoga Center where you can get down with some yoga, massage therapy, and Reiki.
Would I recommend life here in Ventnor? Absolutely. It's a mellow place with many good points that make it a nice place to call home.
