  • Area Information

    Sharing Cape Island with West Cape May and Cape May Point, charming Cape May NJ is not only the oldest seashore resort in the country but also one of New Jersey Shore's most treasured towns.

    Much more than a summer beach town, replete with those standards like mini-golf and arcades, taffy shops and custard stands, Cape May hosts an array of cultural events all year long. Events in Cape May include: Cape May Stage, the Cape May Jazz Festival and the New Jersey State Film Festival. More than just events in Cape May, visitors get lost in stunning sunsets amid one of the most breathtaking natural seascapes and birding locations along the eastern seaboard. World-class restaurants have lent Cape May the moniker as the restaurant capital of Southern New Jersey. With friendly neighbors and small town warmth, Cape May gives you access to everything (a diverse selection of shops, antiques, galleries, pubs and nightspots) with nothing more than a short bicycle ride away.

    With all this, it is easy to forget that Cape May is surrounded by water. The quaint harbor, with its marinas and fishing boats, is home to the country's most sought after sport fishing tournament; the ocean and beachfront are impeccably clean and wide with beautiful breakers and a gentle slope; and the bay front, with its wildlife refuge and horseshoe crabs, lays claim as the summer home to hundreds of dolphins.

    ***If you haven't discovered Cape May, you should pay a visit. You won't be disappointed.***
