Everyone has their beloved beach town. There are so many to choose from, especially in New Jersey alone. Between Wildwood, Sea Isle, Ocean City and Avalon, to name a few, each town is special for many reasons. Out of all of these wonderful destinations, I believe Cape May is the best. Cape May is unique. It is not like your average beach town. It is "America's oldest seaside resort," of course! Here are just a few reasons why Cape May is the best!
