The YMCA is first class although a bit pricey.

Very family and outdoors oriented. Many young families from all over the U.S., as well as Europe.
If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.
Don't Drink The Water!!!! Hahahaha, seriously I would say expect to live in a safe great town but that this comes with a cost. It's pricey, but there are great schools and it's a wonderful place to be in the summer. If you work in NYC, it's only a 60 minute ride to Grand Central, which in my view is better than New Jersey can offer. One train to your destination.
