The real estate site Movato has named the top 10 most exciting places in NJ!It started with 50 of the most populated areas in the state. The results and ranking were based on:

  • Bars and clubs
  • Live music venues
  • Parks and outdoor activities
  • Arts and entertainment venues
  • Restaurants
  • Percentage of young residents
  • Population density

Here's the top 10:

  1. Hoboken
  2. Palisades Park
  3. Long Branch
  4. Atlantic City
  5. Trenton (?!)
  6. New Brunswick
  7. Hackensack
  8. Clifton
  9. Union City
  10. Jersey City

I pretty much agree with the rundown with the exception of Trenton. Trenton? Our capitol belongs on a lot of lists (not all bad) but definitely not "most exciting in NJ!"
