Cape May, NJ

Cape May is a quaint Victorian town.

Image

There are also some hotels along the main road along the beach.

Image

And a promenade (sidewalk) along the beach with shopping and bath houses.

Image

Image

And of course, the beach.

Image

Image

And the lighthouse.

Image

The area they call the mall is several blocks of stores. This is the fountain in the center of that area.

Image

The campground we stayed at was about 1 mile from the beach. The Depot Travel Park. The bathhouses were sparkling clean and it was a very quiet campground. No other amenities, and the camp "store" had only ice and wood. This is my friends campsite. We were right next to her, but I didn't take a picture of my spot. Behind the fence behind us was a field.

Thanks for the tour. It's what I picture the Jersey (eastern) shores to look like.

Excellent idea. It's not a very large (sq mi) area so you should be fine. Enjoy.

The only thing I found curious about cape may, was the fact that you have to pay to get on the beach? I guess it helps them to be able to maintain the beach, but it's just odd!
