Red Bank Ranked 3rd Among ’20 Best Small Towns’

Red Bank is receiving national recognition, as the Monmouth County town has come in at 3rd on Smithsonian Magazine’s “Best Small Towns In America” list.

The shore town that sits on the banks of the Navesink has transformed itself from a town in decline at one point into well, a town worthy of making such a prestigious list.  They came in behind Great Barrington, MA, and Taos, NM on the list.

Red Bank, with a population of about 12,000, features a beautiful, walkable downtown area lined with restaurants, bars, galleries, shops, and clubs. The town also features a great cultural art scene, with no shortage of plays, musicals, concerts, and local tunes. Famed venue, the Count Basie Theater, must be noted in this part of the discussion.

The most important component to Red Bank’s growth has been its absolutely perfect location. The town is situated with relatively easy access driving or taking the train into Manhattan, along with its extremely close proximity to the top beaches along the Jersey Shore.

It is certainly an honor for a New Jersey town that has completed a remarkable revitalization. And it is certainly a proud day for the beautiful town of Red Bank, as they officially get their due.
