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.
Emlen Physick Estate and Cape May Carriage Company are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get in touch with nature at Cape May Point State Park and Cape May City Beaches. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cape May: Parasailing & Paragliding (in Ocean City), Lucy the Elephant (in Margate City) and Atlantic City (New Jersey Korean War Memorial & Atlantic City Boardwalk). Next up on the itinerary: do a tasting at Hawk Haven Vineyard and Winery, indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, stroll through Wildwood Beach, and steep yourself in history at World War II Lookout Tower.
