Cape May has been a booming summer tourist destination for nearly two centuries and is the oldest seashore resort in the United States. The town has the largest collection of Victorian architecture in the nation and has been a National Historic Landmark since 1976. The main attraction of Cape May is the Victorian town itself with quaint houses and interesting shops, a charming pedestrian mall and seaside vistas from the boardwalk, not to mention dozens of eager-to-please restaurants. Cape May is also known for many fine bed and breakfast inns.
Should you choose to go to the beach be aware that in season you must have a beach tag to use Cape May’s beaches. Tags are required between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., from Memorial Day weekend in May through Labor Day in September. Beach tags can be purchased at any beach entrance.
