There are many wonderful Adult Communities and there is easy access to many of the states major roadways. The South ramp for the GSP is under construction and soon one can go either North or South from Barnegat.
There Historic District has some of the best Antique Shops and is featured on many prominent websites. Pirates Day and Founders Day and the Fourth of July Celebrations are great community events as well as the tour of the homes in the Historic District during the Christmas Season.
I, who was personally a resident of Barnegat for many years, think it is a wonderful place for famililes and for vacationers looking for a safe small town American community.
I highly recommend Barnegat.
