I checked out the list of reasons to live in New Jersey at toptenz.net. To me, some make sense and some don't. I think my favorite reason for living in NJ is summer. I know there's traffic, and it's hard to find parking, but there's something about being around the Jersey shore in the summer that is amazing. Sea gulls, the beach, the boardwalk...to me, there's nothing better.

There are other great reasons, like the people, the pizza, the scenery and let's not forget the reality shows! Or maybe we want to forget the reality shows. Anyway, there are a ton of reasons to love the Garden State!
