The Jersey Cape –
A Million Miles Away from Life’s Worries
Find out why people from all over the world come to the Jersey Cape. Imagine a place where you can visit world-class eco-attractions, wineries, and miles of beachfront all in one vacation destination. A place where you can tour a National Historic Landmark resort complete with the nation’s largest stock of Victorian structures, enjoy miles of Boardwalks with spinning, zipping, reeling rides that border the ocean and savor a farm to table gourmet meal complete with freshly caught seafood.
Nestled at the southern tip of New Jersey, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Delaware Bay, the Jersey Cape boasts more than 30 miles of pristine white sand that connects the resorts of Ocean City, Sea Isle City, Avalon, Stone Harbor, the Wildwoods, and Cape May.
Perhaps the most noteworthy attractions next to the beaches are miles of wooden walkways in Ocean City and the Wildwoods complete with roller coasters, bumper cars, Ferris wheels and waterparks.
It’s a place where you can “go outside” and enjoy boating, biking, and camp underneath the stars. Considered one of the most desirable places in the world for bird watching, local centers managed by the NJ Audubon are ready with educational programs and special events for birders from the novice to the professional. After all, Cape May is considered one the top three birding hotspots in North America.
From deep sea fishing to back bay crabbing, paddling a kayak to riding a wave runner, there’s something about the water that attracts visitors here.
In America’s first seaside resort, Cape May, you will notice the Queen Victoria and the Duke of Windsor are the names of Victorian-style B&Bs as you tour the historic landmark city by trolley.
Anxious to see the wild animals of Africa? Stop by the Cape May County Zoo and stroll the African savannah where giraffes and zebras roam freely.
From vine to wine, the Jersey Cape has earned bragging rights, winning awards, and often compared to the Bordeaux region of France. The region’s wineries offer something at every vineyard including wine tasting rooms, events, tours and more. Check out the breweries and distilleries that make up the Wine, Brew and Spirits Trail located throughout the Jersey Cape for tours and tastings.
What’s a glass of wine, beer, or spirits without food? Of course, there are Italian restaurants, plus Irish pubs, Asian, Mexican, and other ethnic dining favorites. Culinary tourism is catching on at the Jersey Cape where diners can enjoy a meal focused on the bounty from local farms and fishing fleets. Scallops right off the boat, fresh flounder and Cape May Salts harvested from the Delaware Bay. Peaches, strawberries, corn, and tomatoes show up on menus from breakfast to gourmet dinners. Even beverages – the adult kind – are sourced locally from wineries, breweries, and distilleries.
