Interlaken New Jersey is a part of Monmouth County. It was originally named after a Swiss peninsula by a farmer who once owned a significant amount of land in the area.
Interlaken is surrounded in many places by Deal Lake. The waterway and surrounding land are carefully managed by the Deal Lake Commission, which also has an influence on the surrounding communities. All these things make Interlaken an appealing place to live, as a quiet borough that is still close to a lot of opportunities for arts, culture, and recreation.
