Camden, one of the largest cities in New Jersey, is located directly across the Delaware River from Philadelphia, creating a sprawling urban center on both sides of the waterway. The growing metropolis invites new residents to experience the abundant opportunities, entertainment options and cultural offerings that Camden provides.
Over the past decade, the city has undergone significant development and brought many newcomers to nearby rentals primarily due to its revamped waterfront area. While this area is home to the majority of Camden's attractions, the pleasant neighborhoods throughout the city have helped support a wide range of lifestyles and make Camden one of the most popular areas in Philadelphia, boasting a population of about 77,350 residents.
