If you are ready for beach season, then you should know that one major publication says you don't even have to leave the state to visit one of the best beaches in the country.

No one has to tell us that we have some of the best beaches around right here in the Garden State, but it's nice to have it verified by a major publication.

There was a recent article at Conde Nast Traveler that came up with a relatively short list of the best beaches in our whole country, and one New Jersey beach made the list.

Only One New Jersey Beach Made The List?

Now, I know exactly what you're thinking if you're a true Jersey Shore lover. Do we have only one beach on the list?

Since there are only 24 beaches on the list, that is some pretty elite company, so we probably shouldn't get selfish on this one.

And sitting right there on the list alongside South Beach in Miami, Florida, and Honokalani Beach in Maui, Hawaii is our gorgeous beach in Cape May.

What About The Other Great New Jersey Beaches?

There is no doubt that the legendary and historic beach in Cape May certainly belongs on this list. It is stunning and a favorite of people all over the world.

But how could we write an article about great beaches in the Garden State without mentioning some of the other famous ones?

So we're going to shout out great New Jersey beaches like Point Pleasant, Seaside Heights, Asbury Park, Sandy Hook, and Belmar. These and so many others would have been great additions to this awesome list.
