Cape May, New Jersey
A far cry from the recent reality TV portrayal of the Jersey Shore, Cape May is a genteel stretch of shoreline off the busier path. Among its attractions is Congress Hall, a beautifully restored, Victorian-era beach resort. The historic seaside inn, nestled on the Garden State's southernmost tip, evokes a time when a rocking chair, a good book and a room with a view were the only things a traveler craved. Built in 1816 as a boarding house, the plantation-like estate, brimming with antiques and vintage décor, is a must for history buffs and anyone else who wants to simply relax.
