Where to stay in Cape May

Choosing where to stay on Cape May remains simple because most accommodations lie steps from Beach Avenue (which, as its name suggests, runs along the cape's stretch of sand). Even choosing your style of accommodation is uncomplicated--inns and bed and breakfasts situated inside Victorian houses encompass nearly the entire range of choices. You can opt for a cottage if you prefer self-service. Budget-wise you'll find the most options in the mid-range and higher end, but a few value-driven choices exist too. Book early if you plan to visit in summer.

  • I just went to the brewery. Very solid. The red was my personal favorite offering. The village/museum looks cool. Maybe next time.
  • Atmosphere was great, service was friendly. We did not love the beer or the soda. But I recommend stopping by on a nice day to check out this unique place and play some of the yard games outside.
  • There is so much to learn here. All of the people that we spoke to in the various buildings were very knowledgeable about the craft that they were demonstrating and the history behind it.
  • Very informative for adults and children. Fun activities and a great brewery on site.
  • Such a fun place! We went on a Sunday afternoon and it wasn't terribly crowded. I loved that the staff interacted with our toddler and made him feel like a "big boy".
