Cape May-On The Way To The Lighthouse. Walking along the beach on our way to the Cape May Lighthouse. The lighthouse was completed in 1859. It is located adjacent to Cape May point and 2 miles from the center of Cape May. Cape May is a city at the southern most part of the Cape May peninsula. The Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean meet at this point. Cape May was designated as a Historic District and a National Historic Landmark, in 1976. It is graced with Victorian Homes which have been turned into Bed and Breakfast Inns, restaurants, or private residences. Cape May is also know for its craft and cultural events such as the Cape May Jazz Festival and the Cape May Music festival. We visited Cape May many times throughout the years and I am happy to say it has not changed much over the years like the other Jersey shorepoints have changed. Our kids loved their visits to Cape May, especially when we went searching for "Cape May Diamonds" on Sunset Beach! They would spend hours looking through the stones on the beach searching for that perfect and large "diamond" which were actually pieces of clear quartz that washed down from the banks of the Delaware River, some 200 miles to the shore.
Good food, pristine beaches, shopping, so much to do. If you ever decide to visit Cape May NJ, be sure to bring you binoculars there are plenty of birds, whales, and dolphins to entertain you.
