The editors agree with Travel + Leisure, which had this to say about Cape May, “and at the southernmost tip of New Jersey, Cape May is a perfect destination for beach lovers with a penchant for the “history and architecture. The town is filled to the brim with Victorian textbooks – cottages, hotels, summer homes – and the vibe is suitably vintage.”

Whether you’re hanging out with your partner or friends, Cape May is a great place to spend the day or night. It’s also a great place to bring family and friends from out of town.

StudyFinds rates some of the best places to visit in Cape May, including the Washington Street Mall, the Cape May Lighthouse, the beach, and the beautiful Old Convention Center.
