Cape May

Cape May is the southern most beach on the Jersey Shore, but also one of the best. It is very unique in a sense that it is both very historical and very commercial. It is considered a National Historic Landmark due to its plethora of Victorian-style houses, as well as it’s involvement during World War II.

Cape May is primarily run by the coastguard, however the tourism is the main source of income for the town. Check out Highbee Beach & Poverty beach (voted 2nd best beach in the US in 2011), as well as the various museums, shopping centers, and aquatic activities that the Cape has to offer.

Ocean Grove

Ocean Grove, New Jersey is directly south of Asbury Park, and is located in Neptune Township, NJ. Ocean Grove was founded as a Christian camp meeting community due to its proximity to New York City and Philadelphia. It is the first site for a tabernacle, an open-air wooden shelter. As popularity of the area increased, the town eventually built the Great Auditorium which is still used today for performances and speakers. Ocean Grove was visited by numerous presidents and was a popular religious getaway and summer town, similar to today! Ocean Grove is a State and National Historic District and is a must-see location if you’re visiting the Shore!

The Great Auditorium has been the hub of entertainment in Ocean Grove since the late 1800s. Today, it is used for musical performers, evangelists, and other popular events…a Jersey Shore must-see!!!!!

If you are not a fan of historic sites, the beach is just as beautiful as the Victorian townhouses. There are numerous Bed & Breakfast hotels, which is a perfect way to start off your morning in Ocean Grove. To make the experience more comfortable, bring your own robe and slippers!
