Great question, tall order. I would suggest that you first prioiritze what is most important to you (i.e., good school system is generic - r u looking for a school with soley academics or good academics AND a good athletic dept; nice place to live - what do you consider "nice"). For me, what first comes to mind is the community to my place of business.
Good luck in your search and please do not hesitate to contact me direct if you have any further questions; I live and do business in Ocean County.

Really depends on how far you want to be from your job/family (if there are any local.)
You can check out the demographics for any of the towns at my website, below. Or feel free to search the entire Ocean County MLS from my website, as well. All the information is up to date, as it is directly connected to the Monmouth and Ocean County MLS.
I cover Ocean County and some towns that come to mind close to 08701 are Jackson, Brick, Toms River, Manchester and Bayville. Feel free to contact me to discuss what you are looking for in a home and price range and I can further narrow down your search.

I serve Southern Ocean county -best bet is to take the time to visit these towns. Barnegat -Manahawkin- Little Egg - Tuckerton - Lacey - Bayville.
It takes time but most folks settle near their work. Are you working in the area?
How much of a drive do you want?
IF you are a first time home buyer - do it soon.
Good house hunting, it is worth the effort.
PS My web site gives community and school info plus all homes listed in certain areas through out Ocean and Monmouth County's. You pick your needs and plug in the zip code - it will find homes for sale and those that SOLD.
The town has approx. 12 parks and for the summer barnegat bay, beaches, 3 lakes and cedar creek. The town has really built up nicely with convient shopping and restaurants. Only minutes on the parkway north or south. Lots of great people here...what else would you like to know? I used to live in 08701 too...
I'm happy to discuss anytime.
