Ahhh, how I love Cape May!! It is a wonderful city, the southern most of New Jersey. Cape May is a Victorian town with hold victorian homes lining the streets. They do not allow chain restaurants (historical)so you will not find a Taco Bell or MacDonalads anywhere. It is a historic city so they wanted to keep it as original as possible. It is full of B&B's, little cafe's and shops!

It is small enough to be quaint and romantic but large enough to have enough to keep you busy.

Some History:
Picturesque Cape May holds the distinction of being the oldest seashore resort in the United States and one of the most unique. Stretching 20 miles out to sea, this oasis of ambiance is a refuge from the hectic 20th century American lifestyle. It is a place to relax, to enjoy the Atlantic Ocean, the city's charming Mall, and most of all, to view the largest collection of authentic Victorian structures in the nation.
Cape May is rich in history. Among its famous visitors have been Maestro John Philip Sousa; circus impresario P.T. Barnum; Civil War Generals Robert E. Lee and William Sherman; Abe Lincoln before becoming president; Presidents James Buchanan, Franklin Pierce, Ulysses S. Grant and Benjamin Harrison.
