Stretching from the banks of the Delaware River to the Great Bay on the Atlantic Ocean, ours is not only the largest county in New Jersey, but certainly unique in terms of what it has to offer both casual visitors and residents.
From the quaint downtowns in our riverfront communities to our major retail and office centers to our pinelands forests, Burlington County offers a variety of opportunities and experiences for everyone.
Let this Resource and Relocation Guide lead you to the best of everything!
Here, we offer a wealth of information on our 40 municipalities. Our schools and libraries, transportation, recreation, healthcare and more are all intended to acquaint new residents with the things they need to know most.
You should know that Burlington County is growing economically, attracting more and more businesses and creating more job opportunities.
You should also know that Burlington County has an incredible pre-revolutionary historic past. The Prison Museum in Mount Holly was designed by the same architect who designed the Washington Monument. Smithville Park on Rancocas Creek was a bustling manufacturing center that rode the wave of the Industrial Revolution at the turn of the century.
Finally, you should know that Burlington County is home to the New Jersey Pine Barrens, a one-million acre natural refuge that attracts visitors and scientists from around the world.
The Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders is pleased to partner with the Burlington County Chamber of Commerce to produce this handy publication. And, again, we hope it tells you what you need to know and more!
