Cape May

(8,500+ reviews from top 30 attractions)
Historic Sites Beaches Museums

The Nation's Oldest Seashore Resort

Cape May represents the other Jersey Shore--the one you don't see on TV--the one with a rich history and a refined, relaxed atmosphere. This town lays claim to being the U.S.'s first seaside resort, and you can witness this tradition in the Victorian-era houses that characterize the town's architecture. Whalers and fishermen originally settled Cape May during America's colonial period, and fishing remains the town's other big industry besides tourism. The cape is small enough that, if you arrive by car, you can just park and make your way around on foot or bike. Whether you only want to go to Cape May, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly United States trip itinerary maker.

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.
