Cape May

If the action in Atlantic City is too much to handle, consider traveling down the parkway to Cape May. Cape May is a small shore town that looks as if it hasn’t changed in the past 100 years. The grand Victorian homes that line the beach are purely breath taking. Although there is no large boardwalk with piers and attractions, taking a walk around the town is entertaining enough. The best way to tour the town is by bicycle. Cape May has bike rental shops that will have you cruising in no time; they even have the four-seater bikes that look like little cars (my favorite).

The Cape May County Park and Zoo is another place to checkout. The best part about it is – IT’S FREE. It may be on the tiny side, but the crowds are significantly smaller than in most zoos. You can’t beat the price and you don’t have to fight other people for a chance to look at the monkeys.

Cape May is a Jersey must see, however, I personally wouldn’t spend more than a day there. But if you are looking for solitude and relaxation it is the perfect destination.
