Situated on the coast of New Jersey, Cape May is a National Historic District, with almost six hundred preserved Victorian buildings as well as a superb beach. Travelling with a family? You don't have to be cooped up in an expensive hotel. Instead, consider renting self-catering accommodation. You will be able to relax and organise your time to suit your family's needs. After a fun-filled morning, you can go back to your apartment, cook your favourite meal and replenish your energy before heading out for some evening entertainment.
As well as a beautiful beach, Cape May has a promenade that is ideal for cycling, jogging or just strolling along. You can relax and take a trolley tour, or even a spooky ghost tour in the evening. On Sunset Beach, scour the sands for Cape May Diamonds, which are actually polished quartz. Bored of the beach? A spot of wine tasting will help to ring the changes. At Cape May Point State Park don't miss the Cape May Lighthouse; your climb to the top will be rewarded by superb views of the ocean. The park is an area of dunes, forests and marshes that wildlife lovers will not want to miss. There are three trails running through it, one of which is accessible to wheelchair users.
Most children will love the sea and sand, but a visit to the nearby Cape May County Park and Zoo is a must. Open all year round, the zoo houses 550 animals of 250 different species. Take a trip on the Cape May Whale Watcher and try to spot whales and dolphins. Children under the age of six go free, and in summer there are firework cruises as well as lighthouse cruises. The Cape May Bird Observatory is a major migratory location where your children can learn to spot many and varied species of birds such as ducks, swans, hawks and even ospreys.
