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.
When in Cape May, make a side trip to see Ocean City Boardwalk in Ocean City, approximately 1h 15 min away. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Cape May City Beaches, learn about winemaking at Cape May Winery, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Cape May County Park & Zoo, and take in the waterfront at Wildwood Boardwalk.

Newark to Cape May is an approximately 2.5-hour car ride. Expect a daytime high around 67°F in October, and nighttime lows around 52°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 25th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
