If you are looking for some culture and nightlife, all you need to do is use our car to visit New York City (approx. 70 minute drive).
We have shops for staples, bakery, and food all within walking distance. Also, the Pt. Pleasant boardwalk is just a few miles away.
Some links of the area:
We are a family of five. John (father) has worked for UPS for over 20 years. He enjoys golfing and sightseeing. Mom (was an adminitrative assistant for Sony, but is a stay at home mom now (working retail for a friend on weekends). She enjoys sightseeing, reading, parks, and walks. We have three children. Ages 13, 12, and 7. They enjoy parks, walks, sightseeing. They love the outdoors.
We would like to visit England in the summer of 2008. We would prefer a family that will do a car exchange, but are open to ones that will not. We have a VW Bug, that seats five. It's a five speed that is included for anyone who would like to do a home exchange.
We do have one cat who is very sweet. He usually keeps to himself and not a lap cat or one who likes to climb about. I can have someone come to feed him, or if you don't want the interruption, maybe you wouldn't mind giving him a bite to eat each day. Our family loves animals and would be happy to take care of yours in the exchange.
