A top retirement state (6 pages)
this page...Ocean County
New Jersey retirement communities are the choice of those who have family living in the area, want an easy commute to New York City or Philadelphia culture, the ocean beaches, enjoy a four-season climate, or may still be working and commute to New York City until they retire.
New Jersey is probably the top retirement state on the East Coast outside of Florida.
The density of the over 55 communities in Ocean County rivals Florida.
