Christmas has come to New Jersey, and it feels like the whole state is full of wonderful activities to celebrate the season. One of the best places to enjoy the festivities is Clinton, which transforms every year into the best Christmas town in New Jersey. The historic Red Mill museum, which is always a fascinating attraction, gets one of the best makeovers in the state and plays host to a stunning collection of Christmas trees. Then there’s the annual Clinton Christmas Parade, which brings a wildly inventive collection of floats down the town’s streets. Spending Christmas in Clinton often feels like stepping into a Normal Rockwell painting, frozen in town and covered in color and joy.
