Visiting New Jersey

Atlantic City, United States



While not first in many people's minds' as a vacation, or 'to visit' destination, New Jersey's $32 billion tourism industry is one of the best in the nation. In part driven by it's approximately 130 Miles of pristine shoreline, renowned internationally as the Jersey Shore, New Jersey has a rich diversity of things to do and places to visit. From the sea- side gambling Mecca of Atlantic City, to the Travel Channel's pick of the best family vacation town in the nation three years running, Ocean City, New Jersey constantly surprises vacationers and business travelers alike as a place like no other.

New Jersey's a geographically diverse state unlike any other. It's one of the few states where some of the nation's best beaches are just a couple hours drive away from award winning winter ski resorts. Sunset Beach in Cape May is one of only a handful in the country where sunrises can be seen in the morning on the eastern beach, and sunsets seen at night on the western beach. New Jersey's home not only to the HBO hit show the Sopranos, but did you know it's also the home of the nation's first beach resort (Cape May), half of all the revolutionary war battles, the first college football game ever (Rutgers beat Princeton) and the statue of Liberty?

If you're planning a vacation, business trip, or just a week-end getaway, consider New Jersey for its 13 casinos, wild wolf preserve, 130 Miles of gorgeous beaches, both winter and summer skiing, nation-wide largest collection of Victorian Era B&Bs, historical landmarks ranging from the Statue of Liberty to the museums of George Washington and Thomas Edison, and world's greatest collection of beach boardwalks, just for starters.

Cape May, New Jersey

Cape May, United States


Sometimes referred to as America's first beach town, Cape May is the oldest seaside resort in the United States. With its keen focus on beauty and history the entire town was designated an historical landmark in 1976. Founded in the 1700's many of the buildings in Cape May are actually originals maintained in emaculate condition. With many being converted into pristine bed and breakfasts, of all shapes and sizes, Cape May is home to the largest collection of Victorian Era B&Bs in the country. Time and again voted in regional and national publications as the most romantic town in America, Cape May is a must-see.

With its numerous nature preserves, Cape May is world famous as one of the best bird watching spots in all of North America. With whale watching, dolphin watching, sport fishing and evening boat tours, Cape May is a seafarers paradise. For the land lubber who would rather dine on seafood than watch it, at Cape May's main dock spectators can watch local fishermen clean and sell the day's catch to the local restaurateur. The tuna, seabass, salmon, crabs, clams, oysters, and more, caught and harvested on Monday often become Tuesday's specials at Cape May's dinning options which range from sandwhich shops to 5 star restaurants.

Walk Cape May's numerous cobblestone streets, or instead take an antique trolley or horse drawn carriage ride around town. Go on Cape May's lighthouse tour, or visit during the holidays and take one of the several decorated B&B tours. Explore your nerves on a ghost and haunted house tour, or laugh out loud while dinning on surf and turf at one of Cape May's dinner theaters. Wonder on your own and see an early 18th century mansion on your left only to turn a corner and find a nearly hidden meticulously maintained French garden like you've never seen. Come visit, and stay, in Cape May for a trip you'll never forget.
