The Twinkliest Towns In New Jersey Will Make Your Holiday Season Merry And Bright

New Jersey knows how to celebrate Christmas! Every year, charming small towns and cities alike host winter carnivals, holiday events, meet and greets with Santa, and more. Things may be a bit different this year but that doesn’t mean we can’t indulge in some Christmas cheer. You can visit a family-friendly drive-thru Christmas lights display in New Jersey or drive around town if you’re on a budget (or don’t want to be bothered waiting in a line of cars). Another fun option is traveling to one of the Garden State’s twinkliest towns – towns that have organized holiday lights competitions where you can expect to find some of the best and brightest displays in the state.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Other towns in New Jersey with local holiday decorating contests include: Collingswood (homes and businesses), Cape May, (homes & businesses) Gloucester Township (homes), Pompton Lakes (homes), Pennsauken (homes), and Maywood (homes).

Are there any other Christmas contests I’ve missed? Please share with us in the comments or let us know via our nomination form. You can also nominate attractions, small businesses, local restaurants, and more to be featured in future articles.
