Cape May, New Jersey is actually an island...A natural shallow creek that runs from the harbor to the Delaware Bay dug a canal making it an island. It is part of New Jersey's cape.
 
The entire community was declared as a National Historic Landmark City in 1976 and is the oldest seaside resort in the US. Before World War II it was a naval station and continues to be home to a Coast Guard Training station today.
 
The population has remained the same for many years averaging about 4,700, however on a summer weekend it can be 10 times that amount. Yet, on your visit it will find it continues its small town feel with tree lined streets, Victorian homes and neatly kept downtown neighborhoods.
 
Just to show you how "south" it is in New Jersey it is located at mile maker 0 on the Garden State Parkway.
 




A unique part of this resort town... is that you find no chain stores in the area, but there is plenty of shopping in the small shops.
 




You won't go hungry...while in Cape May, there are plenty of dining options, from fine dining to a great ice cream cone.

And...you won't go thirsty either as in Cape May you will find hand crafted beers at the Cape May Brewing Co. and Tuckahoe Brewing Co. Both offer tastings on Saturdays.

And...if it is a bit of the grape you like, the Cape May area offers plenty of wineries where you can kick back and relax.

If you like the "homeyness"...of a Bed and Breakfast then Cape May is for you. With plenty of beautiful bed and breakfast locations you can find the special one for your beach stay. If you rather have a different experience, many other accommodations available as well.

Cape May offers visitors things to do, wonderful accommodations and restaurants to make the kind of vacation you are looking for...active, relaxing, peaceful or full of fun.
