Visit Historic Cape May

There are plenty of ways to enjoy the town of Cape May. While the experience may be a bit different this year, it can be just as magical.

Take a Walking Tour of the Victorian Homes

One of the best things about Cape May is its beautiful architecture. The town gained popularity in the Victorian period, sparking the construction of ornate Victorian homes. Luckily, many of these homes have been preserved for the present day.

A great way to enjoy the homes is simply to walk through the neighborhoods. This gives you plenty of time outside, while still seeing the stately architecture. Plus, you can pop by the beach afterward and enjoy the Jersey Shore.

Even more outdoor open space can be found at Cape May Point State Park. Anchoring the park is the 157-foot-high lighthouse. The monument is more than 150 years old and stands as a proud icon of the coastal town.

The park’s natural area is also a great place for hiking. Several blazed trails run through coastal dunes, marshes, and forests, and are easy in intensity. Along with the foliage and sea, you’ll spot plenty of birds. In fact, this natural area is considered one of the best birding destinations in North America!

Along with the natural amenities, Cape May Point has multiple picnic areas along the Jersey Shore. These range from covered shelters to basic tables. Pack picnic lunches for the family and enjoy some time in the open air.
