It's an especially magical place during the holiday season, so much so that it was recently named HGTV's favorite Christmas town in America!

That's a big deal, HGTV could have picked any town from any state in the country and yet it selected one of Jeresy's most beloved towns.

According to APP, there are a few reasons Cape May was selected as the TV network's favorite spot during Christmas.

The quaint gas-lit downtown was one reason, the perfect and gorgeous Victorian houses decorated for Christmas were another reason, and of course, they had to mention the candle-lit house tour the town offers at Christmas.

In addition, APP reports that HGTV loves the fact that the town has holiday-themed trolley rides which are a blast, Congress Hall opens a festive little shopping area for people, and there's a Winter Wonderland Breakfast with Santa for the kids.
