holds the distinction of being the Oldest Sea Shore Resort in the United States?
Jutting out between the Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean is one of the nation's oldest vacation spots, Cape May. A National Historic Landmark and one of the original resorts in the country, Cape May's wicker and lace keep the enchanting Victorian-era alive year round. Take a trolley tour through the gas-lit street, join a walking tour of some of the Cape May's 600 authentically restored Victorian homes, including the Emelen Physick Estate, a magnificent 18 room Stick Style mansion. Catch a bird's eye view of the Cape May seascape when you conquer the 199 steps of the historic Cape may lighthouse built in 1859.
Also don't forget to search for your Cape May diamonds found on the beach or look at the concrete ship beached at the shore.
