Recently Travel Writer featured the popular Best Beaches in the World for 2011.  Included in the list was Cape May, NJ - but why, you make ask?  Let's take a closer look....

Nestled between Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, Cape May County is made up of several beach communities in southern New Jersey.  Cape May is actually the 'oldest seaside resort' in the U.S. so you know it's got to be good.

A National Historic Landmark, Cape May offers over 600 examples of perfectly preserved Victorian architecture in all it's glory.  Visitors can stroll along the quaint shops, visiting the Cape May County Zoo, or searching for those famous Cape May diamonds.  

There's a wealth of activities for outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy in Cape May like swimming, sailing, boating, kite flying, fishing and, of course, that gorgeous picture perfect stretch of white sand beach.  

Visitors to Cape May will find accommodations to fit any budget (including Victorian B&Bs), restaurants serving delicious fresh seafood, along with a generous dose of sightseeing to local attractions like the Cape May Lighthouse, Emlen Physick Estate, and the Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum. 

Cape May is home to a number of annual events like their Spring Tulip Festival, Victorian Week each fall, and Christmas in Cape May in November/December.
