"Very Victorian Cape May" Cape May by richiecdisc

Cape May Travel Guide: 291 reviews and 535 photos

Cape May holds a charm that perhaps no other shore town in the United States does. As the oldest seaside resort in the country, with the largest collection of Victorian buildings, this quaint enclave of culture and historical significance attracts visitors for its old world feel, fine dining, and lovely nature settings surrounding it. Where else in the US can you do some world class birding early in the morning, hit the beach in the afternoon, enjoy a gourmet meal for dinner and then stroll through romantic narrow streets resplendent in tastefully lit, antique laden century old houses? Located at the most southern point in New Jersey, this throwback to a bygone era will entice you with its considerable charms, and once bitten, you’ll come back often to discover more of this diamond they call Cape May.

    What a coincidence! Having postponed Ecuador & Galapagos till Jan/Feb, we've just rented a condo in Cape May for a week in Sept. If I'd read your page we might have decided to do that sooner ;)

    Some very fine looking old buildings here, sort of reminds me of Fredericton!! I have to agree with you Richie, September is one of the best times to explore - after the hordes have departed!

    Ah... the memories! I spent a summer in Cape May around 20 years ago. Glad to see it's still as beautiful as I remember it.
