My vacation spot every summer without fail is Ocean City, New Jersey; This south jersey town has been named best beach town for eight years, along with being crowned America's Greatest Family Resort for several years. The 8-mile town of over 11 000 in population has its cute downtown, mom-and-pop shops, and a boardwalk that offers great pizza and ice cream! So it didn't surprise me when I saw that the Hallmark Channel is going to film one of their Christmas movies there! Every holiday season, the whole town turns into a Hallmark movie. It is a great place to do Christmas shopping and enjoy seasonal activities. I love it, but it is 4 hours away.
