According to Love Exploring, "If landmark buildings, fascinating backstories and historic events are what draw you to a place, then venture to one of these historic neighborhoods – they have all three in spades. From districts packed with Victorian-era architecture to atmospheric main streets in Gold Rush towns, we take a look at the most charming downtowns across the US."

There are so many pieces of history in Cape May. From historic churches to lovely Victorian-Era homes, there is a great deal of history in beautiful Cape May. I always love just walking about and seeing the sights in Downtown Cape May. There are lots of shopping, coffee shops, and restaurants to choose from.

According to Love Exploring, "A stroll along the historic seafront district is a real treat in this charming coastal city. The area is admired for its pristine beaches, but also for its pretty and colorful Victorian mansions. The preservation of these eye-catching homes helped the entire city earn its status as a National Historic Landmark in 1976."
