New York City

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Appreciate the collections at 9/11 Memorial and American Museum of Natural History. Times Square and The Museum of Modern Art are good opportunities to explore the local culture. There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, explore the striking landscape of Hamilton Grange National Memorial, contemplate the long history of Ellis Island, and walk around Central Park.

Cape May

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.
Visiting Cape Henlopen State Park and Cape May City Beaches will get you outdoors. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Out of the Past Antiques and Whale's Tale. Venture out of the city with trips to Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (in St. Michaels), Downtown Ocean City (in Ocean City) and Atlantic City (Atlantic City Boardwalk & Borgata Casino). And it doesn't end there: stroll through Wildwood Beach, explore the galleries of Emlen Physick Estate, enjoy the sea views from Cape May Lighthouse, and brush up on your military savvy at Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum.

To see ratings, more things to do, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Cape May trip itinerary planning site .

Traveling by car from New York City to Cape May takes 3 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or do a combination of train, tram, and bus. Expect a daytime high around 11°C in December, and nighttime lows around 1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
