28. Cape May, NJGet More Info
Why go: Cape May is New Jersey’s southernmost point. The little beach town is full of gingerbread-esque Victorian homes, and the beaches themselves are a far cry from the Jersey Shore. It’s also accessible to many—three hours by car from New York, less than two from Philadelphia, and a quick ferry ride from Delaware.
Where to stay: The historic Congress Hall, steps from the ocean and the city’s historic district, has been housing visitors since 1816 (four sitting Presidents have stayed there throughout its storied past). Relax by the Atlantic in a signature yellow-and-white striped beach tent or lounge by the pool. Then, refuel at The Blue Pig Tavern, which features farm-to-table menu items from the 62-acre farm located a mile from the hotel.
