Moorestown is a township in Burlington County, New Jersey, United States and an eastern suburb of Philadelphia. The township is located in southwest Burlington County and borders Maple Shade Township to the south, Cinnaminson Township and Delran Township to the west, Willingboro Township on the north and Mount Laurel Township to the east.
In 2005 Moorestown was ranked number one in Money magazine’s list of the 100 best places to live in America. The magazine screened over a thousand small towns and created a list of the top 100 for its August 2005 issue, in which Moorestown earned the top spot because of its community feeling, in addition to plentiful jobs within the commuting area, excellent schools, low crime rate, and affordable housing. Another attribute is its proximity to Philadelphia, a center of jobs and cultural and urban amenities.
