What Is The ‘Cutest Town’ In New Jersey?
Anytime a website puts together the rankings of a state or the whole country, it's obviously incredibly subjective. Just the term "cute" could mean different things to different people, so when PureWow put together the list of the Cutest Towns In America, it's bound to spark a debate.
When I think of cute, my mind jumps to Ocean Grove. It's less than one square mile, the houses are beautiful, it's just a cute little beach town. I love Asbury and Belmar, but they're not "cute" in my eyes. Manasquan is mostly cute, Point Pleasant is cute-ish. Cape May is more chic than cute.
You'll notice my list is all shore towns, so I guess I'm biased - PureWow headed away from the ocean and chose:
CRANBURY in Middlesex County.
There’s a lot to love in this charming Middlesex County town: no parking meters; an adorable, tree-lined main village; and some of the quaintest Colonial homes on the East Coast. Best of all, though, is Porch Fest—a neighborhood tradition in which residents take turns throwing open house parties for the whole community.
I mean...there are other towns that don't have metered parking...there are other tree-lined main squares...there are plenty of Colonial homes everywhere. There are even PorchFests all over the state. What makes Cranbury so special, I'm not sure.
What do you think is the "cutest" town in NJ?
