South Jersey Town Named The Most Boring City in New Jersey
A large real estate website has named a town in South Jersey as the most boring city in New Jersey. Do you agree?
Movoto.com has named Pleasantville as the most boring city in the entire state of New Jersey. They assembled this list based on nightlife options (comedy clubs, bars. etc.), live music venues, outdoor activities, restaurants, and other factors. All combined, the website says:
This is one of the smaller spots we looked at, and in this case, small town relaxation meant bigtime boredom. Pleasantville had terrible scores in non-fast food restaurants, population density, and even arts. The scores in active life options, music venues, and nightlife also ranked very poorly.
Sure, this place is pleasant, as the name suggests. It’s quiet, peaceful, and friendly. But if you’re looking to go out at night, indulge in some culture, or get active, you’ve definitely got to go to more exciting places nearby.
Now, let’s be fair. Pleasantville is in the shadow of the glitz of Atlantic City — Atlantic City attracts world-class musical acts in 5,000-seat arenas, has some of the best restaurants on the East Coast, clubs that rival those found in big cities, and that weird art thing in the middle of the city. Any major brands, clubs, or restaurants are naturally going to want to be associated with the big-name casinos in Atlantic City where thousands of people already are. Is Pleasantville the most boring place in the state? No way.
And in case you are wondering, Toms River was ranked the fifth most boring city in the state, Vineland is #11, Millville is #13, Camden is #26, and Atlantic City is ranked 47th. And let me make this observation: the number of boring towns in North Jersey is much, much higher than the number of boring South Jersey towns on this list.
