Cape May Turns 175 Years Old This March

Cape May, New Jersey, has been named a summer, winter and spring destination by many travel and tourism magazines and social travel blogs and websites.  Last week, it was named in "Travel & Leisure's 20 Most Beautiful Small Towns in U.S." It is truly and fittingly New Jersey’s “Crown Jewel.” Cape May has the impressive honor of being named one of the top 20 pristine beaches in the United States and is the only municipality in the nation that is entirely within a National Historic Landmark District.  Only San Franciso has more Victorian architecture!  


On March 8, 1848, the New Jersey Legislature deemed what is now known as Cape May as Cape Island, 175 years ago. The territory now known as Cape May was discovered by the Kechemeche people and first encountered by the colonists in 1600. True to form, Cape May was named for Dutch Captain Cornelius Jackobsen Mey who discovered and charted the territory.
