Living in Deptford, NJ
Getting to know the area around where you're moving to can help you feel more at home.

Living at apartments in Deptford, NJ, can be the perfect place to settle down if you're looking for a wonderful suburban community.

The town was formed in 1695, known at the time as Bethlehem. The township is the country's third most populated municipality, but it still keeps its suburban feel while having so many residents. Many will notice that the town logo is a hot air balloon, due to the fact that Deptford is the site of the first hot air balloon landing in 1793, after having taken off from Philadelphia. Pictures of hot air balloons can be seen all over the town, including municipal signs, water towers, and township stationery.

Deptford has a population of just over 30,000 residents, most of whom have lived there for almost all of their life. Around 70% of the population owns their homes as opposed to renting, and the median household income is about $68,000 a year. Deptford sees less violent crimes a year than the national average, and the public schools in the township are rated highly. The township is less than 30 minutes from Philadephia; many residents think that this makes it the perfect place to live, as it's close enough to the convenience of the city but far enough to give daily life a wonderful suburban tempo.

There are several beautiful parks and playgrounds in the Deptford area, including Tall Pines State Preserve, Fasola Park, Cooper River Park, and Timber Creek Park and Dog Park. Due to the rich history of the area, there are also some interesting historical places to visit, such as the Museum of American History, Gloucester County Historical Society, and Candor Hall, one of the oldest buildings in New Jersey and previous home to a surveyor that helped William Penn plan the city of Philadelphia. For a day of family fun, visitors will find Launch Trampoline Park to be a great place to blow off some energy. Traveling outside Deptford, you can explore the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, the Garden State Discovery Museum in Cherry Hill, or the several wonderful and educational museums throughout Philadelphia.
