Cape May — 2 nights

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.
Explore Cape May's surroundings by going to Atlantic City (Caesars Atlantic City Casino & Borgata Casino) and Lucy the Elephant (in Margate City). There's much more to do: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, sample the tasty concoctions at Cape May Brewing Company, kick back and relax at Cape May City Beaches, and enjoy the sea views from Cape May Lighthouse.

For ratings, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Cape May trip itinerary maker site.

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.
