  • A NEAT PIECE OF HISTORY IN OUR OWN NJ. A MUST SEE IF IN CAPE MAY
  • This was a cool tower that you can climb up in and look at all of the surroundings. There was a WWII veteran in the top to explain about the history of the towers. He had lots of information and answered all of our questions. A good place to visit if you like WWII history.
  • This is really a fun way to learn about the history of Cape May as well as how America used to protect its shores. Easy to climb and always full of friendly staff, it is worth it just for the views of the point.
  • I look into the past during war times, neat little feature.
  • Very interesting place, well preserved and great people working there! Wonderful experience!

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.
