Which New Jersey Towns Made the List of 50 Best in the U.S.?

With the summer months ahead of us, many are itching for a vacation getaway. While many seem to be starting to travel again, others may just not be comfortable getting on a plane just yet.

With that in mind, Big Events Travel, a travel website, sought out to find which towns fit the bill for a close and relaxing sojourn, and we are happy to report that two New Jersey towns made the list, with Asbury Park coming in at #40 and Cape May CRUSHING it at #4.

“Famous for its countless murals across Sunset Pavillion, Asbury is equal party coastal vibes and art haven,” Big Events Travel reports. “As one of the most lively beaches in New Jersey, it’s earned the nickname Brooklyn on the Beach and is loaded with things to do along its shores from vintage arcades to beer gardens.”

Cape May, with its distinction of being “the nations oldest seaside resort and the largest collection of preserved Victorian buildings outside San Fran”, has everything one needs for a family vacation, the website writes.

“You can’t go wrong with a stay in Cape May. The romantic seaside town is so incredible in fact, that the entirety of Cape May is designated a National Historic Landmark,” the website reports. “Walk the old streets to find the painted ladies or pop into any of the countless small-biz eateries that show why it’s considered the Culinary Capital of New Jersey. And all this isn’t even counting the beaches which are the best in the state.”

While Ocean City, Maryland , Jekyll Island, Georgia, Key West, Florida and Mystic, Connecticut also make the list, Carmel by the Sea in Calfornia comes in at #1.
