At the very southernmost tip of New Jersey is the beautiful town of Cape May. Filled with Victorian houses, the town is a feast for the eyes.
A fire destroyed much of the town in 1878, resulting in a great flowering of Victorian architecture.
Many of the houses sport very elaborate gingerbread trim and bright, cheerful colors.
The porches are amazing.
Isn't this pink one (above) beautiful?
Some are private homes, but many are businesses or bed & breakfasts.
Even the most unprepossessing has it's share of gingerbread. :)
We didn't have a lot of time to tour the town, and we will definitely be going back to visit again. There are so many great Victorians that I didn't get a chance to photograph. lol
