Absecon is a small city in every sense including population, area, and city government. But, it is not insignificant in terms of geography. Situated on the Absecon Bay just 10 miles from Atlantic City, it is a great place to live if you want access to the glittering lights of Jersey’s “Las Vegas of the East,” but do not want glittering lights shining into their bedroom window. Absecon offers small-town perks with big-town access. Some call that the best of both worlds.
