My husband and I are currently at McGuire AFB.  It is in the middle of nowhere but within driving distance to a couple major cities.  It is about 45 mins to Philly and 1 hour to NYC.   If you dont feel like driving the train is about 15-20 mins away and goes to the cities also the bus is local and cheap.  Philly is my choice of a night out as NYC is a little too intense on the weekends for me the amount of people are out of control.  Durring the summer the Jersey Shore is only about 30 mins away.  The base has everything you need so being in the middle of nowhere can be annoying but not too bad.  Not my fav base but not the worse base.
