Avalon

While the features that make the small coastal community of Avalon such a great place to
live may be attractive to almost everyone, a median home price just north of $1 million
means not everyone can live here. Almost 60 percent of the homes in this exclusive
beach town are valued in excess of $900K. And significantly more of those homes
compared to other coastal communities, almost 70 percent, are single-­family detached.
Condominiums for sale begin in the $200s and rise to the $800s, while single­-family
detached homes start in the $200s and can rise to more than $10 million. A year round
population of just over 1,300 people is decidedly upscale with almost 95 percent of
homeowners who work holding down white­-collar jobs, a significant number of them as
telecommuters. About 40 percent of the community’s population is comprised of seniors
age 65 or older. The community also has more than twice the number of college
graduates than the national average.


A vacation destination for those who want a more laid back and relaxed beach
experience, Avalon and the neighboring community of Stone Harbor to the south
comprise what is known as Jersey’s Seven Mile Beach and offer a unique charm not
found elsewhere. There are plenty of water-­related activities to keep residents and visitors
active and entertained including boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, surfing,
sailing and swimming. The community offers a number of newly renovated tennis courts
and is also a great place to explore by bike. For shoppers in the family, Avalon offers the
Dune Drive district of shops and boutiques while Stone Harbor has its well­-known 96th
Street shopping district. For those who prefer eating to shopping, the community offers
more than 30 restaurants from which to select as well as a number of great lounges in
which to relax while enjoying a favorite beverage. Family friendly diversions include
miniature golf and cruises to watch the dolphins swim. Residents and their guests can
take advantage of all the serenity Avalon has to offer but be just 10 miles from the
amusement parks and crowds of The Wildwoods to the south. The neon and casinos of
Atlantic City are about a 40 ­minute drive.
