Reader's Digest Magazine has published its list of the Best Christmas Towns in America and only one city in New Jersey was chosen.

Only One New Jersey City Was Named a Best Christmas Town in the USA

There's nothing like the old-fashioned Christmas in Cape May and that's one big reason that our own South Jersey gem is back on the Best Christmas Towns in the USA list again this year.

What Did Reader's Digest Say About Cape May?

"This Victorian seaside town gets even more Dickensian with its gaslights and garlands for the season. Even today, the National Historic Landmark city looks like it belongs in vintage photos of Christmases past."

How Does Reader's Digest Choose Its Best Christmas Towns List?

 Whether they have the best Christmas light shows, old-fashioned Victorian decorations, fun Christmas activities, or things for kids to do—or they're your best chance for a white Christmas— the best Christmas towns in the USA all seem to make you feel as if you've stepped into a Hallmark movie.

Some of the Christmas towns on its list are honored for their Old World charm, with German markets, centuries-old traditions, or a focus on the history of Christmas, while others feature huge, kitschy Christmas shops.

Many are located in areas that get a lot of snow—but some southern towns also made the list.

Cape May has turned into an annual winner on the Best Christmas Towns in the USA list.

What Else Does Reader's Digest Have to Say About Cape May?

"Take a trolley ride back in time to see the Christmas lights, hear Ghosts of Christmas Past tales and jaunt along with Mrs. Claus. Candlelight holiday house tours let you see inside Cape May's historic homes and inns, and you can enjoy a decorated "Winter Wonderwalk" at the Physick Estate, a Victorian house museum."

Cape May will be celebrating its Victorian Christmas until the New Year.
