    Cape May is one of the eight most adorable beach towns in the United States, according to a hotel rating company.

    The historic community, known for its 19th century Late Victorian style homes and bed and breakfast establishments, joins quaint towns in Rhode Island, California, Florida, Maine, South Carolina, and Oregon.

    From the Oyster.com article via Good Morning America: 

    Different from the “Jersey Shore” image that MTV portrays, Cape May is an adorable beach town almost as far south as Washington, D.C. It has loads of Victorian B&Bs and quaint shops selling saltwater taffy, frozen custard, and antiques. The family-friendly town is very walkable and activities range from parasailing and paddleboarding to brewery or lighthouse tours.

    Other communities on the list include Newport, Rhode Island, Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, and Cannon Beach, Oregon.
