20 Best Beaches In The US You *Need* To Vacation On
Cape May, New Jersey
New Jersey is more than the butt of a few bad jokes and the homeland of America’s most obnoxious reality television stars. The seaside city of Cape May and its beaches are a slice of heaven complete with colorful Victorians, the Cape May Lighthouse with views across Delaware Day, and the cute pedestrianized Washington Street shopping area. There are B&B and luxury resorts aplenty, converted Victorian homes that have become lovely restaurants and inns, and a soft sand beach perfect for families. Take a trolley tour to learn about the small city’s large history as a National Historic Landmark. There are 204 kilometers of coast to enjoy as you take in the candy-colored homes and spooky ghost tours in between sunbathing sessions.
