New York City

— 5 nights

Big Apple

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Head to Fifth Avenue and DM Weil Galleryfor some retail therapy. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like 9/11 Memorial and Square House Museum. Step out of New York City with an excursion to Minnewaska State Park Preserve in Kerhonkson--about 1h 50 min away. And it doesn't end there: explore the galleries of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, admire the masterpieces at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, stroll around Central Park, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral.

Cape May

— 3 nights

The Nation's Oldest Seashore Resort

Cape May represents the other Jersey Shore--the one you don't see on TV--the one with a rich history and a refined, relaxed atmosphere.
Escape the urban bustle at Cape May Bird Observatory and Cape May City Beaches. Let the collections at Cape May Lighthouse and Emlen Physick Estate capture your imagination. Change things up with these side-trips from Cape May: Atlantic City (Atlantic City Boardwalk & Borgata Casino). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at South Cape May Meadows, do a tasting at Hawk Haven Vineyard and Winery, and see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour.

To find reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Cape May trip maker website.
