Gourmet Getaway

It's August, Do You Know Where Your Kids Are? They're at camp? Off to college? Then no excuses, it's not too late for a romantic rendez-vous at The Virginia Hotel in Cape May. This isn't your typical shore experience-- you'll find attentive service, luxurious bedding, and an elegant in-house restaurant, The Ebbitt Room. After a day soaking up the rays, watch the sun set on the front porch while sipping cocktails and nibbling from the grazing menu.

You get the ocean without the hassle, the hotel is just one-half block from the beach and provides towels, chairs, umbrellas or a cabana, and beachfront dining. Prefer a pool? Guests have privileges at sister resort, Congress Hall.
