Cherry Hill, New Jersey, is a large suburb close to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In fact, it is a wonderful area to live if a person does not want to live in the hustle and bustle that a city embodies, but still wants the many resources that a city can offer. There are multiple shopping centers in Cherry Hill and many other offerings such as bowling alleys and restaurants. Cherry Hill is about 45 minutes to the New Jersey beaches, or as locals refer to the them, “the shore”. Cherry Hill possesses a responsive and caring local government and a strong police department. It offers everything that a person needs to live contently within a 20-minute drive. One would be very content living in this area.

Someone moving to Cherry Hill should consider the cost of living before moving to this wonderful suburban city. The cost of living is higher than the average American, this being 100. Cherry Hill is about 104.5 based on what I could find. Although Cherry Hill has a higher-than-average cost of living, it is worth paying for the education system and the distance to Philadelphia.

Someone moving to Cherry Hill, New Jersey should know it is a very diverse city with a large Jewish population, and a mix of races. The constant rising population caused new schools, houses, and roads to be built. It is less than 30 minutes from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, one of the biggest cities on the East Coast of the United States, so there are many employment opportunities for a new resident.

I recommend the assortment of grocery stores, convenient stores, drugstores, gas stations and the need for a vehicle to get around due to the roads not being safe to walk on and the lack of public transportation that is quite scarce. In addition to these conveniences, there are also a number of pharmacies.

Cherry Hill may be part of New Jersey on paper, but it should say East Philadelphia. The sports teams, food, and style are all influenced by the nearest big city, that city being Philadelphia. That’s not at all bad, though. Who doesn’t love the Phillies, a nice cheesesteak, and baggy jeans?
