About this area:
Toms River was founded in 1712, became the county seat in 1850 and has been growing ever since! The popularity of Toms River is easy to understand. With its proximity to beaches and access to rivers and the bays, Toms River became known for its wonderful recreational opportunities. As people who originally summered in the community eventually wanted to enjoy the lifestyle afforded by Toms River year round, the community grew. The Garden State Parkway brought access, the needs of the community were filled by new hospitals, a college, a shopping mall, restaurants, movie theaters and much more. Toms River embodies all of the reasons that Ocean County has become one of the most desireable retirement locations in the country.
