The downtown area of Cape May, New Jersey is charming. It is a very busy beach resort town, and the beach is great – but so are strolling around, eating and shopping! To get to Cape May, you get off at Exit 0 on the Garden State Parkway!

You can take bike around town, take trolley rides, and also take a horse-and-carriage ride.

Cape May had a long history as a whaling town:

I was thrilled see the Dala Horse sign indicating a shop filled with lovely Swedish items. My mother was born in Sweden, and I grew up with beautiful Swedish items in my home.

After a hard day of shopping, take time to go to the beach! Make sure you take a Cape May umbrella!
