Travel & Leisure is showing the Garden State some love in their newest list of the most beautiful small towns in the United States. The travel site noted that “most beautiful” is subjective but all towns selected in the list have a population under 20,000 and are a mix of towns that have historic architecture, natural scenery, or breathtaking coasts.

The New Jersey town that was chosen for this list is Cape May.

“When you get there, you are struck by the beauty of Victoriana,” said Diane Wieland, director for Cape May County Tourism per Travel & Leisure. “All the different colored painted houses…the gas lights. Then, there’s a beautiful expansive beach.”

Wieland added, “This is the experience you’re going to get. And this is what we live every day.”
