About New Jersey

Lakefront Living in New Jersey

When someone says New Jersey, lakefront real estate may not be the first thing that pops into your mind. New Jersey is the fourth smallest state, after all. However, this 14,000 square mile state features over 400 publicly accessible lakes and on them are some of the best lakefront homes for sale in the country. Lakehouse.com features nearly 1,000 such properties, and finding the lake house of your dreams has never been easier. Whether you're looking for a beautiful abode to retire in, a summer home for the whole family, or a lively lake community to make your new home, you can find it in New Jersey.

Plant Roots in the Garden State

Benjamin Franklin compared New Jersey to barrel full of good things to eat, tapped at both ends by Pennsylvania and New York. New Jersey gets its Garden State name from being a leading producer of cranberries, blueberries and tomatoes. Moreover, the climate is the mildest in the northeast, thanks to being flanked by the Atlantic Ocean and the beautiful Delaware River. Having a mild climate and being a great culinary destination are just a few of New Jersey's claims to fame. Beyond this, the state is ranked #1 for raising children and #2 for most land dedicated to parks. As the third state to join the union in 1787, it's also jam-packed with arts, culture, and history. If all that weren't enough, it's lakes are some of the best in the United States.

Endless Possibilities

From leafy parks and historical sites to artsy downtowns with breweries and cafes, New Jersey has it all. There may be no state more convenient than New Jersey. New Jersey offers easy access to New York City and Philadelphia, and with that all of the major tourist attractions and professional sports teams. The Philadelphia Eagles and Philadelphia 76ers are just across the bridge, but the New York Giants and New York Jets actually play in New Jersey, at MetLife Stadium. The major cities in New Jersey certainly have their own charm, too. Newark, the largest city in New Jersey, is home to the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, which hosts world-class artists year round, the Thomas Edison National Historical Park, and of course, the world famous Ellis Island, with ferry rides to the Statue of Liberty. Trenton is the capital of New Jersey, a quieter city along the Delaware River, where George Washington famously turned the tide in the Revolutionary War with a suprise attack on a garrison on Hessian mercenaries. Today, the city has a population of about 80,000, and directly borders the Philadelphia metropolitan area.

Fortunately for you, nothing in New Jersey is far from a beautiful lake. Lakefront homes for sale can be found throughout the Garden State, including lakes near New York City, lakes near Philadephia, and lakes near Newark. Some of the best lakes in New Jersey include Lake Hopatcong, the largest freshwater body in New Jersey and great for water sports of all kinds, or Upper Greenwood Lake, a stunning mountain-fed lake just north of Newark that hugs up to the Appalachian Trail. If not, riverfront property for sale in New Jersey is also a great option. Toms River offers gorgeous riverfront property up and down, and is also just between New York and Philadelphia.
