The Golden Inn Hotel sits on the sands of the Jersey Shore in Avalon near some of the area’s top attractions. There’s something for everyone to enjoy, from the Cape May County Zoo to a faithfully restored 19th-century farm at the Historic Cold Spring Village to a lively downtown lined with clothing boutiques, surf shops, and funky beach bars. There are dining and recreation options at the hotel, too, including a waterfront restaurant and tour services.
Seafood specialties are on the menu at Seaglass Restaurant, including pan-seared scallops, Little Neck clams, and grilled mahi mahi.
Hit the beach: The inn is just steps from a long sandy beach.
Private balconies can be found in every room, along with new flatscreen TVs, refrigerators, and pillow-top beds.
The nearby Wetlands Institute features exhibits on local marine life and activities such as kayaking, dune walks, and renowned bird-watching.
Cape May, New Jersey: Seaside Resort Town with Victorian Architecture
The hotel is just 20 miles outside of Cape May, which sits at New Jersey's southernmost tip. The setting is so idyllic that Travel Channel named the town’s coastline one of the top 10 beaches in the country. Aside from beachcombing, popular pastimes here include fishing, whale watching, and bird watching. In fact, the New York Times called Cape May "one of North America's hottest birding spots"—you might see bald eagles, herons, and woodcocks. In the spring, keep your eyes peeled for the latter’s intricate mating dance.
After a fire ravaged most of Cape May in 1878, residents re-built the city in the contemporary style of that time. Dozens of their stately Victorian homes remain standing today. Consequently, the Cape May Historic District has earned the distinction of being a National Historic Landmark. Horses and carriages clip-clop through the colorful, cottage-lined streets, which have been deemed off-limits to chain stores in order to preserve the classic small-town atmosphere. Along Delaware Bay stands the 1859 Cape May Lighthouse. Those who climb the tower’s 199 stairs are rewarded at the top with an unbeatable view of the Atlantic Ocean.
