There are a lot of great small towns to visit in New Jersey that are gorgeous in the summer and fall, but there's something special about these little towns in the wintertime.

Walking down a quaint main street in your coziest hat, scarf, and jacket with a cup of coffee just hits differently this time of year.

But of course, there has to be one town that ranks higher than the rest when it comes to New Jersey's best winter town to visit in the state.

Now, when you think of small New Jersey towns that could be worthy of this praise, a few may come to mind, right?

I always think of Allentown New Jersey, I've visited a couple of times and absolutely love it. Point Pleasant comes to mind and so do Clinton and Lambertville.

Even Cape May is regularly recognized as one of the best small towns in the state.

But none of those towns were voted New Jersey's best town to visit in the winter!
