Cape May : Michelin's recommendations
This lovely seaside town is a popular tourist mecca thanks to its fine Victorian architecture, broad sandy beaches and full calendar of festivals and events. Cape May drew vacationers as a 19C bathing resort thanks to its choice location at the southern tip of New Jersey bordered by the Atlantc Ocean and Delaware Bay. Its streets and waterfront areas feature beautifully preserved Victorian buildings dating from the turn of the century; stop at the Wecome Center near Washington Street Mall for a walking-tour map to guide you in your explorations.
