Cape May

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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Cape May Brewing Company and One Spirit Massage Studio. Venture out of the city with trips to Dogfish Head Craft Brewery (in Milton), Dewey Beach (in Dewey Beach) and Old Pro Golf (in Ocean City). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Emlen Physick Estate, buy something for everyone on your list at Washington Street Mall, paddle through the water with Miss Chris Marina and Kayaks, and enjoy the sand and surf at North Wildwood Beach.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Cape May trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

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.
