If you love victorian homes this is the place to be. Plus the beaches are nicer and less crowded than further up the coast.

Iam sorry but Cape May is priceing there selves out-of-business,There a greedy town with all the time dipping in the locals pockets and the people who visit here.They rape you in the summer time.Over priced beach tags,parking meters,you have to pay for beach tags,and the Life Guards are not covering all the beachs until the end of June,then by end of Auguest most of them are going back the school,then the unguarded again,but then they still charge for the beach tags.and then its parking meter rip-offs.Overpriced food,how can any working family pay this,?Then they cry all winter long in the local Herald Newspaper there in trouble.They pick on the B+Bs all the time and make it hard for them to run there business.then 90% of then are closed in the Winter.The local Washington Street Mall is so overpriced,and then the store owners cry there not buying.Thats my story and Iam sticking to it> Evil or Very Mad

Yes, there is no doubt that Cape May is expensive. But the fact that prices in the area have held up in spite of this recession, which is definitely NOT the case in most second home areas, speaks well for how well liked Cape May is. Here is what one of my friends said about Cape May: "If you retire here it is because you have owned a summer home for many years. Most of us have grown up spending our summers at the Jersey Shore. It's a strong attachment."

I have lived on the Jersey Shore since 1969. I now live here year round. The City of Cape may is very expensive as well as Cape May Point, Ocean City, Sea Isle City, Avalon, Stone Harbor and parts of the Wildwoods. These are the coastal towns. Lower Twp and Middle Twp are along the bay and offer housing for your 2b/2b under $300k. It is a great place in the summer and Cape May offers great restaurants and theaters about 8 months a year. After the holidays the seniors go to Florida. The census just list Cape May County the poorest in NJ. About 60% on the homes are summer homes owned by those in the Phila area. The 65+ group is about 20% of the population and has been decreasing over the last 10 years.

Keep in mind that NJ is one of the most expensive places to live in the U.S. because of taxation. Another negative is the unbearable humidity and mosquitos.
