Cape May

— 2 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.
Get outdoors at Wildwood Beach and Miss Chris Marina and Kayaks. Visit North Wildwood Beach and Poverty Beach for some beach relaxation. Next up on the itinerary: find something for the whole family at Morey's Piers and Beachfront Water Parks, look for gifts at The Fudge Factory, enjoy the sand and surf at Sunset Beach, and contemplate the long history of Sunset Beach Gifts.

For more things to do and tourist information, refer to the Cape May trip planner.

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. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from New York City in August since evenings lows in Cape May dip to 66°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Wed) to allow enough time to drive back home.

For All Seasons
The crown jewel of the state of New Jersey, the Jersey Shore is famous for its many boardwalks and amusement parks offering hundreds of rides and attractions. For many New Jersey natives, going "down the shore" is a weekly habit, though this 200 km (120 mi) stretch of coastline attracts more than just locals. The region is a growing favorite with foreign visitors on vacation, drawn by its rich assortment of places to visit, including beaches, shops, and restaurants. The shore's many oceanfront communities, each with a different character and flavor, range from vibrant resorts entirely dedicated to gambling and clubbing, to small towns known primarily for quieter, family-oriented activities.
