Of the thousands of beach towns considered, the publication noted beachgoers “can’t go wrong” with any of the city’s 24 beach-access points and especially highlighted local and nearby attractions including Congress Hall, the Washington Street Mall, Sunset Beach, the Nature Center of Cape May, Cape May Lighthouse and the Cape May County Park Zoo.
