Where are the best places to live in New Jersey?

Well, while its a small state, there are tons of great places to call home in the Garden State, including one city right in our backyard.

Ocean City.

America's greatest family resort was just named one of the best places to live in New Jersey, coming in at No. 4 on the list of the Top 8 places to live in the state by the website nomadlawyer.org.

Prices can be a little higher since it’s a touristy area, but if you live like a local, you can have a comfortable lifestyle that includes sun, sand and shopping. The downside for some is that it’s a dry town, meaning no alcohol is served in local restaurants.

There are no bars or nightclubs which many families don’t mind and even if you do like to party now and then it is pretty close to the next neighborhoods where you can get a drink.

Ocean City has a ton to offer for year round residents, and of course if filled with things to do in the summer. The high school is great for sports, clubs, academics and offers a unique setting, nestled right on the beach and Ocean City boardwalk.
