Road Trip: Cape May, the ‘Nation’s Oldest Seashore Resort’

We asked, you voted -- and one of your most popular "Road Trip" spots in New Jersey is Cape May.

“There's a lot more than just the beaches in Cape May,” says John Cooke, manager of Sea Crest Inn. “The sense of community that exists here is almost contagious to the people who come. As soon as you're here, you feel like you're a part of something.”

Washington Street in the downtown is a great place to go shopping and get a bite to eat. The city has beautiful Victorian architecture, and of course, there's the beautiful beach and whale watching tours.

Take a drive five minutes south to Cape May Point, and you can see history, including a concrete ship from World War I.
In the summer, the city comes alive with outdoor celebrations and plenty to do.
The city's motto is the ‘Nation’s Oldest Seashore Resort,’ and even though a lot has changed since the area was first settled in 1611, one thing remains constant – the people.
