So, which two Monmouth County towns are the ones that make the 2020 Zippia list? There are plenty of potential candidates. Here are some that aren't on the list but certainly could have.

Spring Lake. Picturesque, quaint and beautiful, Spring Lake is like a storybook town that has come to life. How could you not be happy in Spring Lake. But it didn't make the list.

Colts Neck. Gorgeous flowing landscapes and everything from amazing mansions to rolling hills and farms. Bring your gear and film a movie, right? But all that beauty didn't put Colts Neck on the 'happiest' list.

Asbury Park. All the great food, the great boardwalk and the awesome nightlife will make you happy, but apparently not happy enough to make this list.

So, which beautiful Monmouth County towns did make the list? Here they are...

#6 Rumson. Have you been to Rumson. You get happy just being there. If you live there you must be thrilled. So Happy, it's the sixth happiest town in the state.


#3 Fair Haven. Another Monmouth County gem. It's apparently the happiest place in all of Monmouth County and it ranks #3 in all of New Jersey.

Feel free to add your 'honorable mention' happy towns in the comment section.
