Cape May
This Victorian beach town is roughly 2.5 hours south of New York City, located at the southern tip of New Jersey. It could be a day trip if you don’t mind the driving, but we say grab a room and spend the night — we saw lots of charming listings on Airbnb for less than $100/night. Tourist season starts Memorial Day weekend, and there is definitely something to be said for beating the crowds.

Activities are plentiful and include kayaking, biking, fishing, salt marsh exploring and our personal favorite, whale watching. For food, the Lobster House is a quintessential, bustling, no-frills waterfront seafood restaurant. For something slightly more upscale, Blue Pig Tavern has great breakfast and dinner offerings.
