Editors agree with Travel+ Leisure, which had this to say about Cape May, "et on the southernmost edge of New Jersey, Cape May is a perfect destination for beach lovers with a penchant for history and architecture. The town is filled to the brim with textbook Victorians — cottages, hotels, summer homes — and the vibe is appropriately vintage."

Whether your hanging out with your significant other or friends, Cape May is a great place to spend your day or night. It's also a great place to take out-of-town family and friends.

StudyFinds notes some of the great places to visit in Cape May including the Washington Street Mall, the Cape May Lighthouse, the beach, and the wonderful, old Congress Hall.
