From the sandy beaches of the Atlantic Ocean to the natural strands along Delaware Bay, north to south and east to west, the Jersey Cape has what you are looking for in a vacation destination! Cape May County encompasses 267 square miles and is home to nearly 95,000 year-round residents, with that number swelling to a seasonal population of over 820,000 during the summer months. Part of the county's charm is its history that spans more than 300 years. A number of local museums and arts centers help preserve this history that goes back to the late 1600s.
