Cape May

— 1 night

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.
On the 11th (Sat), head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, then enjoy the sea views from Cape May Lighthouse, and then sample the tasty concoctions at Cape May Brewing Company. On your second day here, pause for some photo ops at Lucy the Elephant, then try your luck at Borgata Casino, and then stroll through Cape May City Beaches.

Plan trip to Cape May with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

New York City to Cape May is an approximately 3-hour car ride. You can also take a bus; or do a combination of train, tram, and bus. In September in Cape May, expect temperatures between 77°F during the day and 62°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Sun) early enough to go by car back home.

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.
