Cape May represents the other Jersey Shore--the one you don't see on TV--the one with a rich history and a refined, relaxed atmosphere.
On the 21st (Sun), contemplate the long history of World War II Lookout Tower, then identify plant and animal life at Cape May Bird Observatory, then examine the collection at Air Mobility Command Museum, and finally examine the collection at Cape May Fire Department Museum. On the next day, enjoy the sand and surf at Sunset Beach, then steep yourself in history at Emlen Physick Estate, then learn about all things military at Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum, and finally learn about all things military at Forgotten Warriors.
