Less than 20 miles from New Jersey's shore and an even shorter jaunt to mini-business hubs of New Brunswick and Hightstown, Marlboro has become a destination for families. The town is struggling to manage sprawl and recreate a strong town center, and in the summer, there are free outdoor concerts in town. Plus, Marlboro offers a large number of recreation programs, including extensive soccer and basketball leagues. The town's mayor recently kicked off a weight loss challenge for residents - and more than 300 people have signed up. -J.M.
