Cherry Hill, New Jersey is a beautiful suburban community with a strong local feel located just across the river from Center City Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Many residents enjoy easy access to the City of Brotherly Love for work and entertainment, while others stay closer to home with short commutes thanks to several major North American companies based in Cherry Hill.
In spring, flowering cherry trees turn the city pink, hence the reason residents successfully petitioned to rename the city in 1961. The Garden State Discovery Museum is a big draw for local families while local restaurants and hip shops, boutiques, theaters and more entertain residents of all ages. Plus, nature is never far away here, with abundant outdoor activities for active residents.
Cherry Hill is an affluent city, regarded as the economic center for South New Jersey. It includes a large number of luxury homes and numerous condominium communities. Several of the local schools have been recognized as "Star Schools" by the New Jersey Department of Education making Cherry Hill an attractive area for families working in Philadelphia.
