Cape May

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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Food Tours and World War II Lookout Tower. Step out of Cape May to go to Ocean City and see Ocean City Boardwalk, which is approximately 44 minutes away. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Cape May City Beaches, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Cape May County Park & Zoo, tour the pleasant surroundings at Wildwood Beach, and do a tasting at Hawk Haven Vineyard & Winery.

For other places to visit, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Cape May vacation trip planner.

Traveling by car from Toms River to Cape May takes 1.5 hours. Traveling from Toms River in October, plan for a bit warmer nights in Cape May, with lows around 52°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) so you can go by car back home.
