Cape May is no stranger to national recognitions. In the past few years alone, it has made various national and regional Best Of lists and is the only municipality in the country to be entirely within a National Historic Landmark District. (Search Cape May and Cape May County Homes Here!)
But this honorific comes from overseas: the United Kingdom version of Travel Advisor just released their Top 25 U.S. Beaches List and coming in at #11 are the beaches of Cape May!
Here's what TravelAdvisor.co.uk had to say:
Nestled in New Jersey’s southernmost point, Cape May is one of America’s oldest seaside resorts and a popular summer getaway. Its beach, running parallel to Beach Avenue, draws travelers for its unobstructed Atlantic Ocean views, lined with ornate Victorian mansions, and bustling shops and eateries.
During peak season from Memorial Day through summer, you will need a beach tag to enter, which can be purchased at the beach entrance or City Hall. You can get a daily tag or a seasonal tag, and they serve as great souvenirs for your visit, too. Explore the rest of Cape May on a guided trolley tour and learn more about the backstories of this historic area.
