Welcome to Toms River; the county seat of Ocean County, NJ, and the gateway to the famous "Jersey Shore"! Located just over an hour south of New York City, an hour east of Philadelphia and an hour north of Atlantic City, Toms River is literally the ideal location for living in New Jersey.
Always the subject of debate and opinion, Toms River's favorite neighborhoods are best filtered geographically and demographically.
Geographically, Toms River is basically divided into four separate and unique sections; the Village of Toms River (Downtown), East Dover, North Dover and West Dover*. Toms River is also home to the beach communities of Ortley Beach, Normandy Beach and the Ocean Beaches.
Demographically, you will find each section of Toms River has a variety of neighborhoods with a variety of home styles and "levels"; i.e., "entry level", "move up" and "higher end" homes.
*Toms River Township was formerly known as Dover Township, hence the East Dover, North Dover and West Dover sections.
Also known as "Downtown Toms River" and the "Country Club" section of Toms River, the Village of Toms River basically runs from the Toms River, itself, north up the Garden State Parkway (Route 9), then turns and runs east along Route 37, before heading south back down Washington Street. Some of the more familiar neighborhoods in this section of town include; Cranmoor Manor, Point O'Woods, Hickory Manor and Fair Acres.
Originally home to chicken coops and tree farms, the North Dover section of Toms River now houses some of the finest estates and luxury homes in town. Generally considered to run north from Route 571, between Whitesville Rd (527) and North Bay Ave, this "higher end" section of Toms River includes some of the following neighborhoods; Todd Road Estates, Bey Brook Estates, The Grande Woodlands and Tallymawr Manor.
Perhaps the largest section of Toms River, considering it encompasses pretty much everything east of Hooper Ave. This section of town also includes the Toms River Waterfront Communities; Shelter Cove, Snug Harbor, Breezy Pointe, etc,. A few of the more familiar mainland neighborhoods in the East Dover section of Toms River include; Deer Hollow, Fairview Estates, Eastwind and Woodmere Estates.
Sharing more than just a zip code (08755) with most of North Dover, this section of Toms River lies west of the Garden State Parkway and south of Winding River Park. Often associated with it's proximity to Community Memorial Hospital and/or the now defunct Ciba-Geigy property, some of the more familiar neighborhoods in this section of town include; Oak Ridge, Silver Ridge and Summit East.
Last but certainly not least, are the beach sections of Toms River. These lesser known beaches are no less spectacular than their northern and southern cousins but they are less crowded! They include; Ortley Beach, Normandy Beach and the Ocean Beaches.
