    The Mooring on Stockton Ave is another great place to stay! A block from the beach and a short stroll into town through the beautiful architecture in the city. It’s a smaller b&b, but very intimate and one of the hosts, Vince Casale, is a Cape May native and will happily provide information on any aspect of Cape May you could imagine. Plus, onsite parking!
