Where can you find great schools, fun recreational opportunities, a family-oriented community and lakefront property for under $1 million? Wayne, that's where. Four lakes and several high-end subdivisions provide plenty of luxury home prospects, but prices aren't nearly as high as they'd be in nearby areas, so why not throw in a heated pool with waterfalls and a koi pond?

Or you can visit the 15,000-square-foot James Roe Pool, which offers a flume ride, drop slide, and geysers. Residents like it so much that every year the township celebrates Wayne Day, complete with petting zoo, dunk tank and rock climbing walls.
