    Casual Nature

    Cape May is a place where you can be yourself. It's not overrun by tourists or filled with pretentious people. It's chill, laid back, and you'll love that vibe. You can wear your flip-flops and sundress (or board shorts and a tank top, no judgment here) as you sip your favorite brew at the local pub.
