Located in Ocean County, Manchester Township is best known for being the location of Lakehurst Naval Air Station. In addition, Manchester also boasts a small-town charm and beautiful forest scenery.
Located just minutes from the Jersey Shore, Manchester offers an easy commute to New York, Philadelphia, and Atlantic City. Even though it’s so close to so many city areas, it has its own privacy nestled into the New Jersey Pinelands.
The Pinelands are home to beautiful parks and lakes, top-notch municipal services, and plenty of outdoor activities. These are all reasons Manchester was voted as one of the best places to retire in New Jersey. But it’s not just the older community that loves the area. There is plenty to do for families and children as well. Pine Lake Park has a large man-made lake. It is a popular summer spot for water activities and fun gatherings.
Another great feature of Manchester Township is that it has a high-ranking school district with plenty of educational opportunities for students of all ages. The district serves just under 3,000 students from pre-k to Grade 12 and is a close-knit family of kids and caring staff. The township is focused on the success of its students and provides them with individualized support and growth opportunities. Plenty of extracurricular activities and sports are provided, as well as programs to cater to those looking to expand their education.
As for shopping and dining, Manchester has plenty to choose from. Of course, you’re within a short drive to New York City, but you can stay in town and have access to all you need there. Downtown Manchester is known for its charm and unique boutiques and cafes, as well as it’s family-friendly atmosphere.
