We know that there are a lot of stories of people moving out of the Garden State, mostly due to the high cost of just about everything around us, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t great places to move into here in New Jersey.

As a matter of fact, I think there are a lot of great towns in New Jersey that should get more positive feedback than they get, so I’m thrilled this one is getting some love on this level.
