Wife and I are looking at houses in Jersey, actually, for this year.
Pretty close; we live just outside of Philadelphia, to the northeast by the Jersey border. (I think my wife would prefer I not be more specific on an open forum). Her family lives near Rowan university; we drive down to that area frequently. (South Jersey really is quite lovely, so much nicer than Jersey's north-Jersey reputation would suggest).
If you don't have a specific location in mind, I really recommend the Glassboro area- Pitman is a wonderfully quaint little town where I stayed for awhile, Glassboro a slightly larger town, and the Aura area is absolutely wonderful for getting away from it all; big farmland acres, plenty of space- no traffic or congestion. So you've kind of got your nice small, medium, and large options around there. (And several other spaces in the region, like Deptford, have their nice features, too).
