Cape May, is a city at the southern tip of Cape May Peninsula in New Jersey, where the Delaware Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean. Although it only has a population of 4,034 permanent residents, it swells to approximately 100,000 visitors in the summer. The town's history dates back to its founding in 1620 by a Dutch captain named Cornelius Jacobsen Mey.

Cape May is a seaside resort that draws visitors from Philadelphia, New York City and other surrounding areas. It claims to be the oldest seaside resort in the United States and first became popular in the 18th century and was considered one of the finest resorts in America by the 19th century. It is noted for its large number of well-maintained Victorian houses - the second largest collection of Victorian-era homes in the nation after San Francisco. In 1976, it was officially designated a National Historic Landmark city.

The Cape May area is also a world-famous location for the observation of migrating birds in autumn. Cape May Bird Observatory is based nearby at Cape May Point.
