Cape May, New Jersey

Historic Cape May - The Nation's Oldest Seashore Resort

When you think of Cape May, the first thing that comes to mind are the beautiful and charming Victorian gingerbread houses on tree lined streets. If you have been to Cape May before, you also think of good food. You not only can find regular seafood restaurants there but you can find superior cuisine throughout Cape May.

There are no "chain stores" in Cape May.  Large national franchisers have not located here. Instead there are small shops and antique stores on Washington Street Mall and Beach Avenue where you can find exactly what you want.

Cape May is an extremely popular year round town. They go all out to please tourists throughout every Holiday season and no matter when you visit, you will love it! You can go to the beach or go whale and dolphin watching, take a Victorian house or ghost tour, golf (real and miniature), fish (surf and sea), visit antique shops or art galleries, go to the theater and concerts and even take a carriage ride. My favorite is shopping in this beautiful town!

There is so much to see and do......
