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.
Step out of the city life by going to Parasailing & Paragliding and The Wetlands Institute. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Historic Cold Spring Village and World War II Lookout Tower. Go for a jaunt from Cape May to Margate City to see Lucy the Elephant about 56 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: get engrossed in the history at Emlen Physick Estate, steep yourself in history at Cape May Carriage Company, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Cape May Brewing Company, and indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink.
