Originally established as “America’s first seaside resort”, Cape May has homes reflecting the style of the 19th century. This peninsula and island offer a plentiful selection of modern homes, as well as historic homes, bungalows and larger scale homes built in the early 1900s. Vacation homes can also be found in area resorts and along the coast, which are widely popular with investors and those looking to be close to the water.
Cape May has a little something for everyone. The dining experiences range from steak and bountiful seafood, to classic Italian, to the Washington Street Mall—an outdoor walking mall with numerous family-owned shops and restaurants that have been there for years. You can enjoy a cocktail on the porch overlooking the ocean or take a tour of Fisherman’s Wharf to see the process of getting the fare from the sea to your table. Every fall, Cape May enjoys their annual Food and Wine Celebration – one of the area’s favorite events. In fact, this area has been aptly named “the restaurant capital of New Jersey” by the New York Times.
Cape May also offers a wealth of historical tours for residents and visitors alike. Ranging from ghost tours, trolley tours, remarkable home showcases, to flower displays and winery tours—Cape May has activities suited for everyone. The lighthouse is located in Cape May Point State Park and is over a century old. The World War II Lookout Tower is the last remaining of its kind. Restored in 2008 and 2009, the tower is now a local veteran memorial. The Carroll Gallery is located in a preserved carriage house and offers features that focus on the rich history of the area.
Children’s and family activities can be found anywhere. Take a boat tour around the island. Participate in a treasure hunt geared towards teaching children about the historical elements of the local architecture. Take a trolley ride for your very own guided tour of the downtown area. Or you and your family could go on a Harbor Safari with a local marine biologist to learn about the areas plants and animals.
