Cape May Destination Overview


Situated at the southern tip of the Cape May Peninsula is Cape May, one of the United States oldest vacation destinations. Because of the remarkable number of Victorian buildings located in Cape May, the entire city has been designated the Cape May Historic District and is a National Historic Landmark.

A visit to Cape May promises award-winning beaches where you can soak up the sun, explore Victorian architecture, enjoy top notch bird watching and small town charm. You can walk or bike anywhere and days can be filled with delicious fresh seafood from local restaurants, strolls through the sand and stunning water views.

As for the beaches, in 2008, the Travel Channel recognized Cape May as one of America’s top 10 beaches ranking No. five on the list.

Whether you’re looking for seaside activities or a day at the shops, Cape May delivers a feeling only small cities can provide. Local boutiques and antique stores lines the streets for you to wander through and peruse the merchandise. Maybe you’ve taken a holiday to relax on the water. Cape May is a great spot to slow down and take a break.

Rental options in Cape May

Consider a vacation rental when making your plans for your Cape May holiday. With apartments, cottages, homes, condos and other living accommodations available, there’s room enough for a single person to a whole group of people.

Being in Cape May, staying near the beach near the ocean makes sense. Renting a house near the water ensures you can wake up and fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing against the rocks. In the morning, enjoy breakfast with the windows open while the salty sea air drifts through then head right out to the beach for a day of sun, surf and relaxation.

If you want to be right in the heart of all the action, you can rent a place in downtown. Restaurants, shops and other cultural activities will be right outside your door so there's no need to travel far and cut time out of your fun-filled day.

Renting a cottage can ensure you’re staying right near a golf course, if that’s your favorite vacation activity. Spend the whole day putting on the green since you’ll be so close and it will make stopping back at the rental easy for meals or a change of clothes.

Cape May rental features

Vacation rentals are available at a variety of prices as well so no matter if you’re looking to splurge or save, there’s something in everyone’s price range.

Many vacation rentals on Cape May are also pet friendly so don’t worry about whether or not to bring along your four-legged friend- they are welcome, too!

In addition, vacation rentals provide the comforts of home while you travel. Whether it’s a washer and dryer so you don’t have to leave with dirty clothes, a full kitchen to whip up homemade meals or central air conditioning to keep cool during hot weather. You can live like a local and be completely comfortable for your whole stay.
