Paulsboro is a community with a strong industrial sector that is located near Interstate 295 and the Delaware River to the north. Mantua Creek lies to the east, Greenwich Township to the west, and East Greenwich forms the eastern border. The borough offers an easy commute to the employment centers in Philadelphia and Wilmington, Delaware. The cosmopolitan attractions and amenities in those metropolitan centers are also accessible, from shopping to the performing arts. Housing options are diverse and homes are more reasonably priced than those in many sections of the Delaware Valley. The selection ranges from well-kept older homes that feature intricate details to more modern construction in a variety of architectural styles. Recreational highlights include an expansive 18-acre park, an active cultural community, and a number of golf courses within 15 miles.
