About The Neighborhood Cape-May-Neighborhood


Letter-With beautiful beaches, breathtaking Victorian architecture, and first-rate restaurants, it’s no wonder Cape May is on the list of “1,000 Places You Must Visit Before You Die.” America’s oldest seaside resort was declared a National Historic Landmark City in 1976, because when Cape May City nearly burned to the ground in 1878, the reconstruction that followed left a plethora of Victorian era buildings like no other in America. Indeed, strolling or biking down Cape May’s charming streets and admiring the gingerbread homes, painted in as many as seven colors, is a favorite pastime.

About two and a half hours away from New York City and a little less from Philadelphia, Cape May is at the southernmost tip of New Jersey. It’s the Jersey Shore at its best; forget about what you’ve seen on MTV’s popular show featuring Snookie and crew. Because of the canal, Cape May is separated from the rest of New Jersey, both physically and metaphorically.

It still looks like “small town America” right out of a Norman Rockwell painting, and days are spent sunning and splashing at the shore, browsing at antiques and crafts fairs, shopping in unique boutiques on Washington Street Mall (there are no “chain stores”), wine tasting at local vineyards, exploring nature trails, climbing to the top of lighthouses, whale and dolphin watching, taking Victorian house or ghost tours, golfing (real and miniature), fishing (surf and sea), luxuriating at spas, taking in live theatre and concerts, and enjoying moonlit carriage and trolley rides. What’s more, with customary seaside fare being joined by superior gourmet cuisine, dining in Cape May often exceeds the casual visitor’s expectations.

Summer’s not the only time to visit Cape May. The Christmas season draws guests from all over the world, and the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts sponsors a slew of not-to-be-missed festivals, tours and special events throughout the year, including the Food & Wine Festival, Victorian Week and The Spring Festival. If that’s not enough to keep vacationers content, you can cross over the canal bridge to find amusement parks in Wildwood just 15 minutes away and casinos a 45-minute drive away in Atlantic City.
