This Southern NJ Town Named One of America’s Most Beautiful

A national travel publication has bestowed the highest honors on a South Jersey town, naming it one of the most beautiful in the entire country.

The editors of Conde Nast Traveler recently released their list of America’s 26 Most Beautiful Cities, which examines locations from coast to coast, border to border.

Of their general classification, they say,

America has some great cities, sure, but America’s most beautiful cities offer something of their own. Whether they have exaggerated American charm or proximity to some of the most beautiful landscapes on the planet, these idylls are worth at least a stopover. And don’t worry, you won’t run out of things to do: these little towns are home to local shops, tons of outdoor activities, and restaurant-to-people ratios that tip in your favor.

And among those 26 towns is one of the brightest gems in the entire state of New Jersey – of course, we’re talking about Cape May.

The town has dozens of bed and breakfasts, a bandstand right in the middle of town that often features live music, colorful streets, charming restaurants, countless shops offering everything under the sun, gorgeous beaches and a lighthouse that has stood for 163 years. .
