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. This town lays claim to being the U.S.'s first seaside resort, and you can witness this tradition in the Victorian-era houses that characterize the town's architecture. Whalers and fishermen originally settled Cape May during America's colonial period, and fishing remains the town's other big industry besides tourism. The cape is small enough that, if you arrive by car, you can just park and make your way around on foot or bike. Use our United States trip planner to arrange the details of your trip to Cape May and other destinations.
