This Charming New Jersey Destination Is Perfect For A Weekend Getaway

With Memorial Day Weekend rapidly approaching and the summer not far behind, now is the perfect time to start planning your warm weather getaways. We’re a bit spoiled in New Jersey, having so many beautiful beach destinations to choose from, but there’s one island you absolutely can’t miss. Of course I love LBI, and you can’t deny the vibrancy of Absecon Island, home to Atlantic City, but there is no other town in the world quite like Cape May.

Cape May has been honored with many accolades over the years including being named one of America’s Top 10 Beach Destinations by the Travel Channel, the Third Most Popular Wedding Destination in the US by the Philadelphia Inquirer and one of the 10 Coolest Small Towns In America by Budget Travel. Cape May is a truly charming town filled to the brim with gorgeous Victorian architecture. For the purposes of this article, Cape May will refer to the collection of small towns on Cape Island including Cape May, Cape May Point and West Cape May.

Where do you stay in Cape May? What are your favorite attractions and restaurants? Most importantly, are you as in love with this island as I am?
