A Tour of Cape May County with The Jersey Girls

The Jersey Girl series is set in my home town and the characters stop to visit a lot of my favorite places. From nature trails to the hottest bar in the Wildwoods (in my opinion), you can read about what the locals like to do at the Jersey Shore. Listed below are just a few of the places in Cape May County where the girls will stop to visit.

Wildwood Boardwalk
Wildwood boasts one of the best boardwalks in the USA and Lainey is ready to show it off in Falling Star. She coerces Drew unto a few rides, despite his fear of heights, including a Sling Shot, whose name speaks for itself.  They also make pit stops at the giant Ferris wheel and the roller coaster.

Lainey’s Condo
This building is the inspiration for the condo where Lainey resides. It’s right on the beach in Wildwood and just down the street from where I grew up.

Woody’s is a bar in North Wildwood owned by my friend Trevor. We went to high school together and later reconnected when I dated a musician who played there. Woody’s is the main hangout for the Jersey girls in every book, but will play an especially large role in In Perfect Harmony when Ravi and Erin meet there.

The Hot Spot
The Hot Spot has been a trusted Wildwood tradition for more than fifty years.  Today it’s run by my friend and former schoolmate, Haroula.  A visit to the Wildwood boardwalk wouldn’t be complete without a gyro from the Hot Spot!

The Concrete Ship
The concrete ship was formally an experimental war vessel. In 1926, it ran aground after a big storm and has been a tourist attraction ever since. 

Cape May Point State Park
This is one of my favorite spots in all of Cape May County, especially in the off season when there are no tourists around. I can spend hours wandering the trails of wetlands that lead right out to the ocean. It also boasts a pretty impressive lighthouse and has a little museum. 

To learn more about what Cape May County has to offer and see what life at the shore is really like, check out the Jersey Girl series today.

Drew DiPalma feels like he’s living a lie. He’s had it with his Hollywood persona, the high-maintenance women, and his sleazy agent.  To escape the madness, he flees to a tourist town he’d often visited as a child. He never expected to find love on that little island. Then he stumbles upon Lainey alone on the swing set of a deserted beach.
After a dozen internet dating disasters, Lainey Riccardo has given up on romance—until she meets a West Coast hunk who has no trouble winning her heart.  But Lainey only knows him as Drew, not the Oscar-nominated actor who’s constantly scandalized in the tabloids. When she learns the truth, will the small town Jersey girl be able to accept Drew’s fast-paced life? Or will the truth drive her away forever?
