Cape May is my all time favorite place to visit in all of New Jersey. From the fresh smell of the salty sea to the unique boutiques and rustic shopping center, Cape May just makes you feel like you're home.
Visiting Cape May has been a tradition in my family for as long as I can remember. Since I'm from North Jersey, it is definitely a hike to get all the way down there, as it's exit 0 on the Garden State Parkway. If you are not familiar with New Jersey, its typically a 3-4 hour car ride for me, depending on summer shore traffic.
With that said, we decided to spend the week of July 4th down there since we all had some time off from work. Being the type of person I am, I decided to really focus on self care and relaxation; and Cape May just so happened to be the best place for this. Don't get me wrong, I definitely had my fun too, but I did try to focus on finding things to do that would benefit my mental and physical health.
Before jumping into this blog post, I just wanted to mention that we rented out a 2 bedroom apartment right on the beach as opposed to staying in a hotel. This was great because it was in a very convenient location, we all had our own space/rooms, and a full kitchen to cook meals, rather than eating out everyday for a week straight. The place we stayed at was called 'Morning Star Villa'.
