See if the magazine considers your town to be crap. Click here.

SEASIDE HEIGHTS - Town officials welcome tourists, who are happy to plunk down $5 for a small cup of ice cream. They are not as happy to host "The Make America Great Again" rally this Saturday on the boardwalk. Mayor Anthony Vaz, a Republican, originally denied the pro-Trump rally because of concerns it could get out of hand. But it was ultimately approved because of that damn First Amendment, with that inconvenient right of people to peacefully assemble. Vaz told NJ.com that he was concerned about violence, damage to property and all the expense that goes into extra police protection. But, under the law, is there really a choice?
