You may wonder: Why Cape May? Cape May is one of the country’s oldest vacation resort destinations and it’s a National Historic Landmark due to its concentration of Victorian architecture. The Travel Channel (among other organizations and media outlets) recognized Cape May as one of America’s top 10 beaches. The peninsula has welcomed vacationers to her shores since the mid-18th century, and continues to enjoy the distinction as one of our nation’s premier year-round vacation destinations.
Cape May has many special features for you and your family to experience and explore. For instance, have you heard of Cape May Diamonds? They are little quartz pebbles, washed down from the Delaware River and you can find your very own on Sunset Beach and other beaches in the area. Grab your little ones and start a family scavenger hunt… for Diamonds!
