America’s oldest seaside resort, Cape May, is a haven of Victorian charm, family-friendly fun and cultural goings-on. The town’s picture-perfect streets and shoreline are populated with original Victorian architecture in the form of brightly colored houses known as painted ladies. Thanks to Cape May’s dedicated preservation of its extensive history, the whole town was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1976. Alongside its eclectic dining scene and boutique stores, Cape May is also home to a lively cultural scene and boasts two theater companies and a number of annual festivals, including the famous Cape May Music Festival, which is over 30 years old. All you need to do is step out the front door of this five-person home, cross the road and you’re at the beach. Not only is the location the most sought after in town, the building itself is a beautiful baronet mansion built in 1870.
