Cape May

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.
Get some historical perspective at Cape May Lighthouse and Historic Cold Spring Village. Venture out of the city with trips to Ocean City (Ocean City Boardwalk & Ocean City Beach) and Atlantic City Boardwalk (in Atlantic City). There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Cape May City Beaches, get great views at World War II Lookout Tower, get to know the resident critters at Cape May County Park & Zoo, and get a taste of local nightlife at Cape May Trolley Tours.

To find reviews, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, read our Cape May road trip site .

In September, daily temperatures in Cape May can reach 77°F, while at night they dip to 62°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
