Atlantic County is known for many things.  Mention Atlantic County to someone and the first thought they'll conjure up are the casinos, or perhaps the boardwalk or beach in Atlantic City.

Atlantic County has much to offer beyond Atlantic City.  Great entertainment, restaurants to suit all tastes, diverse backgrounds of people and our proximity to Philadelphia and New York make this a great place to call home.

Being the new guy in the area, I did research to find a place to live.  I'm a New Jersey guy, but I've been away for the past few years.  I understand that living in Jersey comes with a high price tag, but I still found the rental market in this area to be a bit shocking.

During my search, I discovered a list published by of the best places to live in Atlantic County in 2022.  Here are the top 3:

3.  Egg Harbor Township:  Egg Harbor Township is a highly ranked place to live in all of our state.  They have great dining options, lots of shopping, and a highly-rated school system.

2.  Margate City:  Most people who live in Margate City own their home.  The median home value of just under a half million dollars is well above the national average.  Margate City has a small-town feel that's close to big-city action.
