When the canal that separates Cape May from the mainland was dug Cold Spring was split up into two parts. One section is now located north of the Canal and one section is located south of the canal.
The section located north of the canal has Cold Spring Village which is an early American open- air living history museum which seeks to show visitors what life would have been like for South Jersey residents who were living in the time of "home spun." Cold Spring village has everything from a basket weaver to an old-fashioned candy store and is a great day trip for kids and adults alike. Also located on the North side is one of oldest graveyards in the United States and it contains the remains of more mayflower descendants than anywhere else outside of Massachusetts and tours of the graveyard are offered to curious visitors.
The south section of Cold Spring encompasses the famous Cape May lighthouse, which is more commonly known as being a part of the Point, and the beautiful skyline of the island greets those who decide to climb to the top. South Cold Spring also contains Sunset Beach with its mini golf course and gift shops. While Sunset beach is known as a prime spot for watching sunsets it's also a great spot for searching for the famous Cape May Diamonds and unique seashells to take home as souvenirs. If either of the Cold Springs sounds like your idea of the perfect vacation spot Wilsey Realty is happy to help you explore your options!
