Cape May was named as one of the five best beach communities in the country by Parents Magazine today.

The publication rated Cape May as fifth on its Top Ten Beach Town released Monday.

The publication listed Hilton Head Island, S.C., Coronado, Calif., St. Pete Beach, Fla. and Falmouth, Mass., as the towns ahead of Cape May.

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.
