Cape May[edit]

Cape May, New Jersey is affectionately known as "America's Oldest Seashore Resort" and has a rich history dating back to the early 1600s. Cape May was not officially an island until World War II when the Army Corp of Engineers constructed the Cape May Canal to help protect the American waterways from German "U"Boats, primarily the entrance to the prominent city of Philadelphia by way of the Delaware Bay/River.
