This past weekend while I was visiting friends in Jersey one of the things we did was drive down to Cape May. Cape May is as far south as you can get in New Jersey without cruising straight into the Atlantic!
This seashore town oozes curb appeal with its gorgeous homes and gingerbread cottages! While there are many private residences, most of the big homes near the water are B&Bs. The restaurants are all very unique and offer a completely different selection compared to what this Midwesterner can get at home!
One of my favorite places was the Cape May Peanut Butter Co.
Not only was there grinding stations for all different kinds of nut butters (almond, cashew, and hazelnut to name a few!), they had packaged and baked goodies to take with you or enjoy as you walked around town. Hands down the coolest part was the custom PB&J's made to order! It took everything I had to not get the s'more inspired sandwich!!
Another awesome shop that we found was Sea Bags. All of the bags are made in Maine from recycled boat sails! Pretty neat stuff!
If you're still undecided on where you're headed for summer vacation, give Cape May some serious thought! We only spent the day down there, but I know you could spend several days enjoying the beaches, shops, restaurants and wineries!
