Benefits of Living in New Jersey

So you've made the big decision to leave New York for its neighbor to the south. You're not alone; the New York Post reported over 3,200 address changes from New York City to Hoboken or Jersey City between March and October 2020. People cite the desire for a bigger house, more land, and ownership of a car as reasons for moving to New Jersey. In fact, many residents moved to stretch out a bit, but continue to commute to New York for work. You won't be saving much travel time with this move: New Jersey residents spend an average of 31.7 minutes on their morning commute, only barely shorter than New York's 33.3 minutes, which is the longest in the country.

To prepare you for your move to the Garden State, here is a list of ten things to know before you go:

1. New Jersey is

Rich in History

As one of the 13 original American colonies, New Jersey is brimming with history. A key player in the Revolutionary War, there are historical sites all over the state in towns like Monmouth, Princeton, Trenton and Springfield. The Treaty of Versailles was signed in Somerville, New Jersey, and the site still stands as a Burger King! Visit Washington’s Rock for spectacular views of New Brunswick and the distant New York City skyline.

2. You'll love New Jersey's

Proximity to Cities

While New Jersey boasts its own noteworthy cities, like Jersey City, Newark, Hoboken and Atlantic City, residents also benefit from proximity to two of the country’s biggest metropolitan areas: New York City and Philadelphia. Both sit less than an hour from New Jersey’s borders, and both city skylines are impressive to behold.

3. New Jersey is Full of

Family-Friendly Towns

New Jersey townships feature great amenities for families, including safe and attractive parks, successful after-school programs, and popular summer camps. In fact, a recent study named New Jersey the number one state for raising children, based on fifteen factors in three main categories: family conditions, social conditions and education conditions.

4. New Jersey Boasts

Top-Notch Education

U.S. News & World Report ranked New Jersey on top in its ranking of the best states for education. This evaluation considered factors such as preschool enrollment, high school graduation rates, and performance on standardized tests. Higher education in New Jersey was evaluated as well, and ranked 27th in the U.S. The state boasts forty-eight colleges and universities, including Rutgers, Seton Hall, and ivy-league Princeton.

5. New Jersey has Many

Cultural Opportunities

Don’t worry that moving away from New York means sacrificing culture. First of all, New Jersey is still close enough to NYC to partake in all the city has to offer. But New Jersey also has its own prestigious cultural institutions, like the Tony-Award-winning Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, the living history museum at the Miller-Cory House in Westfield, or Madison’s Shanghai Jazz, ranked in the top 100 jazz clubs in the world.

6. Explore

Exciting Activities

The New Jersey landscape is varied across the state, with the Jersey Shore to the south and the Watchung Mountains to the north. As a result, there is no limit to the outdoor activities that await you: boating, hiking, climbing, biking, and skiing are all popular activities. Visit the Pine Barrens in the southern part of the state, and maybe catch a glimpse of the infamous Jersey Devil; search for “diamonds” on the shores of Cape May; or visit the Delaware Water Gap for some truly breathtaking views. For different sorts of thrills, Atlantic City offers a stretch of boardwalk and casinos, and Six Flags Great Adventure welcomes coaster enthusiasts of all ages.

7. New Jersey is

Fantastic for Foodies

There is food to please any palate in New Jersey, from classic diners in nearly every town to a varied collection of over 700 ethnic eateries statewide. Some locals claim that New Jersey does pizza better than New York and cheesesteaks better than Philadelphia. Be sure to try (at least once) the Taylor Ham, or Pork Roll: a Jersey delicacy, this processed meat is traditionally served with egg, cheese, salt, pepper and ketchup on a bagel. New Jersey is also known for its fresh produce, especially berries and tomatoes (they don’t call it the Garden State for nothing!)

8. You'll Find

Lower Taxes and More House

While the income taxes in New Jersey are not considered low compared with most states, they are when compared with New York. Sales taxes are also lower, and your wallet will thank you for that every time you go shopping. You can also afford a lot more house and a yard in New Jersey for the same price you paid for a tiny two-bedroom apartment in NYC.

9. You'll Love the

Full-Service Gas Stations

New Jersey is the only state in the U.S. where it is actually against the law to pump your own gas. Full-service stations are not just a luxury, they are a requirement! Gas in New Jersey is also cheaper than gas in New York, so go ahead – buy a car and take some Sunday drives around the Garden State!

10. Relax on

The Shores

The beaches of South Jersey are world-renowned tourist destinations. Just don’t call them “beaches”: the correct term used by New Jerseyans is “down the shore.” Keep in mind that many of the sandy spots require a “beach tag” for access, at a cost of $5-$10 per day or a discounted rate for weekly or seasonal tags. Cape May is not to be missed, with its 19th-century architecture and 2.5 miles of coastline. The Wildwoods is a resort area with a boardwalk, amusement park rides, and 5 miles of free access beaches.
