What is Hamilton like?

Hamilton, NJ is a township near the coast, next to cities such as Freehold and Long Branch. With a population of 92,000 people, this area makes a nice place to live—not too big, not too small. There are 64 parks in the region, so residents can enjoy plenty of green space. Veterans Park and Sayen Gardens are two fine examples. Popular annual events here include the Azalea Festival, September Fest community day and Winter Wonderland. This is a charming community, and there is always plenty to do in town.

The location here is good too. Close to a network of roadways running in every direction, Hamilton is well connected to the other states nearby. The New Jersey Turnpike and Interstate Highways 195 and 295 are just a few of the roads here. New York City is only an hour away, so all the big city amenities are within a short drive. Some of the attractions in town include Grounds for Sculpture, a sculpture park that fills 35 acres, and the Hamilton Township Civil War and Native American Museum.
