DENNISVILLE – Dennis Township ranks fifth in the state in a list of the top places to live, according to a survey published in New Jersey Monthly magazine.
Six of the county’s 16 towns ranked in the first 100 out of 566 in 21 counties statewide.

They looked at eight quality of life categories: property taxes, home values, population growth, land development, employment, crime rate, school performance and proximity to services.
After Dennis, Cape May City placed 18th, Upper Township 23rd, West Wildwood 34th, Lower Township 71st and Stone Harbor 100th, according to the magazine.
County towns ranked between 101 and 250 in the survey were:
_ West Cape May, 109.
_ Ocean City, 141.
_ Cape May Point, 151.
_ Woodbine,189.
_ Wildwood Crest, 205.
_ North Wildwood, 232.
_ Avalon, 242.
