With all these things to do in New Jersey, we know you’re ready to start planning your spring vacation. There are several Select Registry New Jersey Inns in the area we believe you should consider.

The Peter Shields Inn and Restaurant offers a sanctuary of peace and tranquility with nine guest rooms and a breathtaking shoreline view.

• In the heart of Cape May’s historic district, you’ll find The Humphrey Hughes House. It’s one of the most spacious and gracious inns in Cape May.

The Fairthorne, a historic whaling captain’s home, is another excellent option in Cape May. It features a gracious wraparound veranda where sumptuous breakfasts are served.

• Also in Cape May, the Queen Victoria is a premier bed and breakfast. It has all the comforts of home and none of the demands.

• And last but not least, be sure to check out the Mainstay Inn. Originally known as “The Clubhouse,” it’s a 19th-century pleasure palace. The twelve spacious guest rooms are all furnished with splendid antiques!
