This Bergen County commuter town offers the sort of peaceful living with proximity to everything that people often wish for as they look to become suburbanites. Known as the "garden spot" of the Pascack Valley, River Vale is full of tree-lined streets and 8,000 acres of parkland and open space, part of it bordering the Lake Tappan Reservoir. The town is vigilant about keeping things clean and environmentally friendly. The town has a rich history - it was the site of the famous Baylor Dragoon Massacre in the Revolutionary War. The charm and serenity comes at a price: Most single family homes in River Vale top the $600,000 mark. -J.M.
