    Default Advice for an Airman

    Hi folks, I realize a lot of these questions come up but I am hoping to gain some advice from NJ residents.
    I am doing "footwork" for my youngest brother who is an airman currently in transit from North Dakota to Virginia. he will be stationed at Ft Dix so I was going to take him up to look for townships around the base he may be able to find housing in.
    I was looking for areas within an hour of Ft Dix & preferable closer to the shore as he likes to fish etc. Also, he has two dogs one of which is a pitbull mix so I'm not sure if that is an issue. Currently one of the towns I was looking at for him was Lakewood.
    I appreciate any advice offered & thanks in advance.

    Welcome Malleus.

    Lakewood is a good town, although it had fallen on hard times. It's registered as an UEZ town, which means that the sales tax is only half (3.5%) of what it is in non-uez towns in New Jersey (7%). I am not sure about the school systems or anything like that.

    Other towns you may be interested in checking out are - Toms River, Brick and maybe even Beachwood. These are areas I'm more familiar with. Toms River and brick are routinely rated as the safest towns/cities in America.
    New Jersey is the only state honored by two resorts at Walt Disney World. The Beach Club Resort, modeled after Historic Cape May and The Boardwalk Resort, after Atlantic City. If the Jersey Shore is good enough for Walt Disney to recreate, isn't the REAL Jersey Shore even better for you and your family?

    What about the other side of NJ - towns like Riverton Riverside or Delanco? They are on the water but not the beach. As for the pit bull most towns in NJ do have leash laws. There are some dog parks but in open areas the dog will have to be leashed and under control - check with each individual town for license laws.
