Travel Tips from people who've been to Cape May
This is a nice change from the usual beach going travel routine. The beach itself is a different type sand, with many colorful rocks and pebbles that are also used in the cobble stoe streets. The waves are good for floating in, not surfing or boogey boarding. There are a handful of restaurants and stores, but Cape Mary isn't that much of a tourist spot. Mant neighborhoods or regular citizens are scattered right along the edge of the beaches, so you won't find too many tourists there, expecially around sundown. At one part on the beach there is sunken ship (the last time I was there anyway), that you can see from the shore. Over all it was a nice place to visit to escape the chaotic bustle of boardwalks and busy tourist spots.
Cape May is a wonderful getaway spot located in South Jersey. A relaxing vacation spot near the beach. You will not regret this trip. There are many cozy bed and breakfast spots, however I prefer to be right on the beach. Smack in the middle of the town you will find a gazebo which you can find yourself to be entertained with a live band. Highly reccommended my friends!
The town is very historical with filled with Victorian architecture.
