Cape May

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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ocean City Boardwalk and Emlen Physick Estate. And it doesn't end there: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Cape May County Park & Zoo, take some stellar pictures from World War II Lookout Tower, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and stroll through Sunset Beach.

The Garden State
Often overshadowed by its legendary neighbor, New York, New Jersey holds its own as a land of thriving industrial cities, sprawling farmland, and lively coastal towns. Called the Garden State, New Jersey is a hub of entertainment and cultural attractions for the east coast, from the famous sandy beaches and carnival-like atmosphere of the Jersey Shore to alluring Atlantic City, the Las Vegas of the east. New Jersey also boasts a wealth of historical places to visit, including battle sites and memorials, such as George Washington's Revolutionary War headquarters.
