Exit Zero Escape: Cape May NJ

Living in New York City, summer means looking for places to recharge. One place I’ve come to love is Cape May, New Jersey.

Cape May is a picturesque seaside resort town on the southern tip – the last exit on the Garden State Parkway – of New Jersey that comes alive in the summer, swelling ten fold to about 40,000 residents.

Friends talked glowingly of the Victorian houses, the beach, the restaurants. They kept saying it was a place I’d like. It took me a while but when I finally visited, I fell in love.

With stunning Victorian homes, some converted to Bed and Breakfasts, and vistas such as this, it isn’t difficult to see why this little New Jersey destination is such a draw.

Our visit coincided with the weekend of the Classic Car show.
