Cape May CoupleIf a weekend visit with your significant other to Cape May doesn’t help you regain that lovin’ feeling, you need to check for a romantic pulse. ..

The city with the second most Victorian buildings in the country (after San Francisco) is chockablock with charming, impeccably maintained Victorian homes and B&Bs, gingerbread-like confections with names such as the King’s Cottage and Puffin Suites.

The Victorian Motel, curiously enough, may be the least Victorian building in the city, a three-story brick seaside motel.

No matter; a hand-in-hand stroll through the city on a warm summer night may be just the kickstarter for love and romance.

Cape May is built for walking. There are scores of shops (the best named: Miss Demeanor, a women’s boutique), restaurants and food stops. Many are congregated at the pedestrian-only Washington Street Mall.

It’s not very romantic, but a stop at Hot Dog Tommy’s, a hole-in-the-wall hot dog stand on Jackson Street, is a must. The guy behind the counter with the goofy hot dog hat is Tommy Snyder, who dispenses a sizeable order of shtick with his hot dogs.

Trolley tours run by the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities are a great way to see and learn about the famed seaside resort.

The Shore’s best ice cream, as far as I’m concerned, can be found at the Vanilla Bean Creamery, a purple-shuttered house just past milepost 0 on the Garden State Parkway. It’s actually in Lower Township, not Cape May — but don’t go looking for a website or Facebook page, because there are none.
