Cape May, NJ {Sunday In My City}

During our vacation we spent a day in the lovely town of Cape May.   In fact, it's one of our country's oldest vacation spot.  I would recommend this gorgeous town as a top place to visit.

Cape May began as a vacation spot for people from Philadelphia in the early 1800's.  In 1878 a huge fire burned down many homes.  The homes were re-built in a victorian style.  Cape May is designated as a National Historic Landmark because of the victorian home.  The details of the homes are stunning.  My husband and I walked around the town and tried to capture the beauty in these homes.

A lot of the homes have been turned into Bed and Breakfast's, but some are still private residences.
Could you envision yourself sitting on this rocker, relaxing during a cool summer day?
I love this hammock!  
 I hope you enjoyed the lovely view of Cape May.

  6. Lots of detailed painting on those homes. They do look great. Have you ever stayed at one of the B&B's. I think B&B's are fun and you usually get to learn more from the locals.

  8. I haven't stayed at a B&B. My in-laws rent a home and that is where we stay for our vacations. Todd and I did stay at a B&B in Gettysburg, PA and one in Ireland. I loved both.
