Cape May's rich and storied history, beautiful Victorian mansions (many of which are now bed-and-breakfasts) and adorable town center with shops and restaurants make it a popular destination for families. Kids will love the beaches, mini-golf and arcades, while mom and dad will appreciate the antique shops, terrific restaurants and local farmer's market.

The beaches in Cape May are wide with white sand and generally gentle waves. Thankfully, much of the beach and town were not harmed by the hurricane. Cape May is a bike town. Try to stay in a hotel that offers bikes on loan or for rent -- it's the best way to get around.
