Spend Spring Break in Cape May

Spring Break is just around the corner, and that means the students’ much-anticipated week off of school is too! If you’re trying to find a fun and family-friendly destination to spend spring break with your kids, then we have just the place.

Cape May has plenty of fun spring break activities that you and your family can enjoy during your time here. Below is our list of some of the best things to do for Spring Break in Cape May.

The Beach

The beaches of Cape May are undoubtedly the area’s most popular attraction, and going to the beach is something almost all kids enjoy. Temperature permitting, a beach town is the best place to spend spring break.

Spring break in Cape May can be hit-or-miss though in terms of temperature. You may see some days in the 70s, and you may see some days in the 40s. When the weather is nice, the beach is certainly something you’ll want to get out and enjoy. And if it’s too chilly for a typical beach day, you can always bundle up and get out there to beachcomb, fly kites, or just walk on the beach.

Cape May County Zoo

The Cape May County Zoo is a favorite not only among students, but among Cape May visitors of all ages. TripAdvisor even ranked the Cape May County Zoo the third best zoo in the nation.

The zoo houses over 550 animals, including tigers, giraffes, elephants, and much more. They also offer guided tours, interactive exhibits for kids, and live animal shows, so guests can observe the animals up close and even interact with some of them through hands-on exhibits. Cape May County Zoo is an excellent spring break activity for kids and their families.

Cape May Museums

Cape May has no shortage of history, and with that, no shortage of museums. Museums offer kids and teens an opportunity to learn and explore different topics, from history and science to art and culture.

There’s museum options in Cape May for spring breakers with all different types of interests. A few popular museums include the Cape May Lighthouse, the Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum, Cape May County Museum, and the Cape May Fire Department Museum. These museums are both an entertaining and educational activity for spring breakers and their families.


If you want a memorable spring break experience, this is it. Railbiking with Revolution Rail Co. is one of the most unique attractions Cape May has to offer.

Ride around and experience Cape May on your own pedaled railbike. Follow along the tracks during the 1.5 hour ride and see Cape May from a perspective you never expected to. It’ll definitely be something interesting to tell peers and teachers when they ask the usual “What did you do over spring break?” question.

Escape Room Cape May

It’s no surprise that escape rooms have become so popular in recent years. Being able to solve riddles and put your problem solving skills to the test while racing against the clock in a real-life scenario is such a fun and unique concept.
