With the warmer days ahead and everyone eager to get outdoors and experience their community – I thought it would be fun to see what makes you love your town? What are your ultimate favorite things where you live? Whether you are a newcomer or have lived here your entire life – there’s always something new to discover or share with others! I loved everyone’s responses for our first 365CranfordWestfieldNJ Favorite Things poll! Looking forward to the next one! It’s fun to find out why everyone lives, works, and loves their local communities!
