  • Description

    Just across the Delaware River from Pennsylvania via the Ben Franklin, Betsy Ross and Walt Whitman bridges, Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties in New Jersey have long appealed to residents working in Philadelphia but seeking a more relaxed place to raise a family. There are quaint towns like Haddonfield and Moorestown, where residents love their neighborhoods and lifestyle, yet thanks to rapid transit, they can be in the city in 20 or 30 minutes. And as a bonus, they can get “down the shore” in an hour, too.

    Driving east into Camden, Burlington and Gloucester counties, the land flattens out and gets a bit sandy. Farms begin to pop up on the landscape — this is the area where the Garden State nickname was born, where acres of flavorful Jersey tomatoes still grow, and in some areas, such as Medford Lakes, stands of trees hide bodies of water where fishing and kayaking are waiting. These areas together have a population of more than 1,000,000 people, and within them, they each have communities that have long been favorite places for people to settle when they tire of city life.

    Moorestown, N.J., a Burlington County town named “Best Place to Live” in 2005 by Money magazine, continues to attract new residents in large part because of its quality of life and proximity to Philadelphia. Similarly, Medford Lakes, with its somewhat woodsy, rustic feel; Haddonfield and Haddon Heights, two historical and community-oriented towns; and Cherry Hill, one of the largest immediate suburbs of Philadelphia, are all top picks for people looking for proximity to Philadelphia and even Atlantic City. The River Line, a New Jersey Transit light-rail commuter train, travels between Trenton and Camden and is therefore convenient to residents of these towns. They can transfer to the PATCO high-speed line for the rest of the journey into Philadelphia.

    There are many recreation options in this southern part of the state, but one of the most notable is time at the beach. There are many shore points that are just a little over an hour from these places. Each community also has system of parks and is close to several state parks where hiking, fishing, canoeing, kayaking and other activities are plentiful.
