Cape May - New Jersey

Go out of your way to visit this location. Great beach area, very unique homes and tourist section. After seeing so much of North America this location now has become one of our favorites. The very different multi colored homes are quite pleasing to the eye and the small historic downtown area has just enough shopping to spend a few hours before visiting one of the many restaurants in the area. Have returned and this time stayed a night to enjoy one of our favorite places.

Cape May - New Jersey

The Story behind the picture

   Cape May for many is far removed and similarly it took many years before we discovered it. How fortunate for us, as this has now become a favorite. Walking down the main street in the historical area each home takes on a special appearance. For me, it was understanding that homes this size required large families. They were built to reflect the personality of the owner, and all are quite different in shapes and sizes.

John`s Comments
Ferry ride from Lewes, Maryland was short yet memorable. Cape May itself was very impressive, from the very distinctive buildings to the shopping and restaurant venues. Buildings may remind you of scenes in the movies of years ago and many of them are decorated for effect. One noticeable item was that beach traffic was restricted to those willing to pay (at least during the time we were there).

John`s Recollections
One of my favorite locations to stroll thru the streets and view the decorated homes that stand that test of time. Just a very pleasant place where we are able to see our past in a great surrounding.

John`s Personal Views
We will return when possible, as the experiences have always been quite positive. The last time there we did spend an evening in the area as there are many good restaurants to visit. To us it seemed like the biggest drawing card was the historic buildings, yet the beaches, shopping & restaurants came in a close second. Just a pleasant place to spend some time.
