Somers Point

Snuggly tucked away just in from the Atlantic on the north shore of Great Egg Harbor
Bay, Somers Point can trace its history back to a plantation settlement of the same name
that began in 1693. Incorporated in the late 1800s, the city is now home to about 11,000
residents and offers a wide variety of housing options and prices. While the community
offers some of the region’s more affordable prices on older homes in established
neighborhoods, it also offers some of the region’s newest construction with some single­
family homes on the harbor selling for $2 million or more. Asking prices for some luxury
waterfront condos can also occasionally exceed $1 million. Primarily residential in nature,
the community is home to a number of top marinas and is a hub for boating and fishing.
Just across the bay, the Tuckahoe-­Corbin City Fish and Wildlife Management Area offers
the ideal place for boaters and naturalists to explore with more than 35,000­acres of
protected habitat. Included in the native wildlife found there is a rich diversity of birds that
include bald eagles, peregrine falcons, owls, ospreys, herons and egrets. Other nearby
wildlife conservation areas and state forests offer protected beach areas, lighthouses and
more.


Just four miles from the Atlantic and the sandy beaches of Ocean City, Somers Point is
just 10 miles southwest of Atlantic City, making it ideal for business commuters or anyone
just wanting the bright lights and entertainment options of a larger city. Philadelphia is 60
miles away. While the community is not over commercialized, it does offer a full range of
professional and health services, including the 380­bed Shore Memorial Hospital. There’s
also no shortage of retail stores and some of the region’s top restaurants are in Somers
Point. A family-­oriented community, the city government offers numerous athletic and
recreational facilities that include basketball and tennis courts, bicycle paths, boat ramps,
a swimming beach, eight baseball fields, a football fields, and more. For more than 20
years, the city has hosted the annual Somers Point Beach Concert Series with rock, jazz
and blues on an outdoor stage at William Morrow Municipal Beach Park. Each April, the
city is home to the Somers Point Bayfest with entertainment, arts, crafts and food along
historic Bay Avenue.
