Cape May's beaches have been one of the city's main visitor attractions for over 200 years. No matter the season, Cape May is a destination that always captures the romance. Many of the restored Victorian homes and cottages in the city have been turned into charming bed and breakfasts and hotels.

Half block from the beach is the Victorian Angel of the Sea bed breakfast; all reservations include a full gourmet breakfast, afternoon tea and sweets, and evening wine and cheese. The Chalfonte is a member of Historic Hotels of America and its elegant Magnolia Room restaurant serves up traditional Southern fare, open to the public. The Grand Hotel is featuring a special "Valentines Sweetheart Getaway" package with breakfast, a four-course dinner and dance entertainment.

Enjoying seafood in Cape May is a must while visiting. The family-owned Lobster House on the Fisherman's Wharf has been preparing fresh seafood from its own commercial fishing fleet for over four generations. Another great place to try is Black Duck on Sunset Restaurant, known for its slow roasted honey glazed duck and homemade sorbets and ice creams.

Take a class to learn all about the Italian red wines from the Cape May Wine School at the Washington Inn Restaurant. Or stroll along the Washington Street Mall and find other cafes, restaurants and shops. Don't forget to stop by one of the three Cape May Wineries to experience some distinguishing wines, such as Willow Creek Winery, Cape May Winery Vineyard and Turdo Vineyard Winery.

Close by in Cape May Courthouse and open daily are Jessie Creek Winery and Natali Vineyard. Cape May has so much to offer from its charming Victorian style, spectacular ocean views, mouth watering restaurants and plenty of shops. Making plans for a romantic getaway in Cape May will guarantee to make the heart grow founder.
