Indulge us as we take a look back at some of our best Daily Escape beach pics. What better way to prepare for Memorial Day weekend, and the official start of summer, than by visiting the beaches of America?
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.
