Winter in New Jersey can be tricky to predict – as anyone surprised by a sudden blizzard can tell you! Some winters it seems like you’re getting hit by a snowstorm every other day, and other winters it’s 55 and sunny as you walk the Jersey Shore! But for die-hard snow-lovers, you might want to head north to the town of Newton, located far from any major cities in Sussex County. The town has a population of over eight thousand people who are well-acquainted with snow – the town gets the highest average snowfall in New Jersey every year, a whopping 37 inches! That means they have a unique way of celebrating the winter around these parts, and Newton makes a charming winter getaway in New Jersey for anyone who loves it cold and snowy.
