To most, Somers Point is the quintessential coastal town nestled along the Jersey coastline. It sits right outside of Ocean City. It's close to Margate and Ventnor, as well, so it's the perfect place to make you feel like you're at the beach without actually physically staying in a beach town.

The people that live there are, in a word, diverse. You'll find people from all walks of life that call themselves Somers Point residents. Depending on who you'll ask, you'll get very different opinions about what it's like to live there.

Most would likely say it's a wonderful place to call home all year round. Others have something else to say. No town is perfect, right?

Of course, Charlie's Bar was shouted out as having the best wings in the area. He's not wrong there! 🍗🍗
