Cape May

— 6 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.
Explore Cape May's surroundings by going to Ocean City (Stainton's, Ocean City Boardwalk, &more) and Atlantic City (Harrah's Atlantic City Casino, Borgata Casino, &more). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Cape May City Beaches, cool off at Morey's Piers and Beachfront Water Parks, browse for treasures at Out of the Past Antiques, and stroll through Wildwood Beach.

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.
