This assignment proves how unique in tradition and rich in history Atlantic and Cape May Counties in New Jersey are.

We have selected 10 municipalities throughout Atlantic and Cape May Counties.

Our team of family members, readers, and friends then reviewed each and selected what each of these communities are most famous for.

As always, we readily confess that this exercise is completely subjective in nature and wide open to be challenged. Which we hope that you will do.

For example, after publishing our report … we realized that Hammonton, New Jersey … which is the Blueberry Capital of the World was omitted.

That’s regrettable, but, also this is a list that we will revisit and add new content in the future.

We hereby, retroactively add Hammonton, New Jersey to this list.

Here is Atlantic County Clerk Joe Giralo (below) with two cases of these Hammonton delicacies:
