Cape May
Historic Cape May sits at the southern end of New Jersey, where the Delaware Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean. Travelers from around the world visit this seaside resort to enjoy its pristine beaches and restored Victorian mansions — many of which are bed-and-breakfast inns. You can also climb to the top of the Cape May lighthouse to take in a panoramic view of the area or visit the town's bird observatory to catch migrating songbirds, redheaded woodpeckers and ospreys.
