Cape May

— 1 night

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 3rd (Fri): sample the tasty concoctions at Cape May Brewing Company, then do a tasting at Hawk Haven Vineyard and Winery, then do a tasting at Turdo Vineyards & Winery, and finally settle in for a delightful tour with Cape May Carriage. Here are some ideas for day two: look for gifts at Kona Surf Co., visit a coastal fixture at Hereford Inlet Lighthouse, then steep yourself in history at Historic Cold Spring Village, and finally enjoy the sand and surf at Cape May Point State Park.

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.
