- Cape MaySep 14, 2013
From the East Coast to the West Coast - No place matches the warmth and comfort of a historical shore community. We still have the cottages, bed and breakfasts, hotels, friendly neighbors, plus great restaurants and of course wonderful beaches. This is the type of place mom used to take you on vacation. One of the few shore communities you will feel safe and secure on an evening stroll, you wont worry about locking your doors only what to enjoy next. From our Beaches, History - kept alive and well, carriage rides, bed & breakfast's, gas lite streets to our wonderful Light House and Bird Migratory trails, everyone returns, you just can not resist.

The Jersey shore, and especially Cape May, is one of our family's favorite summer getaways. Dotted with beautiful and ornate old Victoria homes and hotels, this seaside town offers wide beaches, great dining and activities for children and adults. It's a lovely place to relax and breathe in the salty sea air.

This Victorian town has long been impervious to any of those—let’s just say, not-so-quaint—stereotypes associated with the Jersey Shore. In its pedestrian-friendly downtown, you can rent bicycles, nibble on fudge and taffy, or shop for all manner of precious items, from antiques to high-end cat toys.
Stay: It’s chockablock with adorable Victorian B&Bs, but Cape May also has a beautifully renovated grande dame hotel. The 1816 Congress Hall—where John Philip Sousa once conducted concerts on the lawn—now offers beach cabanas, yoga classes, and free Wi-Fi.
Eat: Ebbitt Room at the Virginia Hotel may be the epitome of Cape May’s fabulously decadent, high-priced dining options—tuna tartare with fennel and honeycrisp apple, Magret duck breast—but for excellent fare that’s actually economical, don’t miss the gourmet sandwiches and chocolate bread pudding at downtown’s Depot Market Café, next to the old train station.
