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.
Start off your visit on the 30th (Sun): take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, then steep yourself in history at World War II Lookout Tower, then see the interesting displays at Cape May Lighthouse, and finally stroll through Cape May City Beaches. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate the long history of Emlen Physick Estate, kick back and relax at Wildwood Beach, and then find something for the whole family at Morey's Piers and Beachfront Water Parks.

For other places to visit, photos, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Cape May day trip planning website.

You can drive from Trenton to Cape May in 2 hours. In May, daytime highs in Cape May are 69°F, while nighttime lows are 55°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Mon) so you can 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.
