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.”
