This is the perfect time to drive all the way to Exit Zero on the Garden State Parkway come for a romantic weekend getaway or maybe a girl’s weekend.

 

 

Day one – Friday

One of the best places for brunch in Cape May is The Mad Batter.  The Mad Batter sits on historic Jackson Street, The Mad Batter has been the recipient of many critically acclaimed awards. You should try their amazing Grilled Chicken and Avocado Pita, served with a unique apple cranberry almond coleslaw.

 

 

After your bellies are happy and full, take a stroll along the Washington Street Mall. It’s a 3-block pedestrian strip with clothing stores, toy stores, candy, ice-cream and souvenir shops.  The Mall starts on Perry street and ends at Ocean street. For more shops, you should also check out the Carpenter Lane.

Day Two – Saturday

 

Start your day with one of the best breakfasts in town served at George’s Place, 301 Beach Avenue.  Reservations are not accepted for breakfast or lunch, but this time of the year you shouldn’t have a problem getting a table. This place is so famous that during the summer, the waiting line is LONG and the waiting time is about 1 hour or more. Their Banana French Toast is exceptional and is our favorite, but no matter what you order, you will not be disappointed.  Also keep in mind they are cash only.

 

 

A must see is the Cape May lighthouse built in 1859. The tower is the third documented lighthouse and has been an aid-to-navigation for mariners and attraction for visitors for centuries. It’s been open to the public since 1988 and has greeted millions of tourists. If you choose to climb, there are only 199 steps to the top and the view is totally worth the effort. The view extends to Cape May City, Wildwood to the North, Cape May Point, on a clear day Cape Henlopen, Delaware to the west.  If you choose not to climb, the old oil House on the grounds contains a Visitors Orientation Center and a Museum shop. There are several trails around that lead to ponds, dunes and marshes where you can spot birds and other wildlife.

 

 

After doing your steps for the day by climbing to the top of the lighthouses refuel and rest at the famous Lobster House. If you are a seafood lover, this is a must stop. They are open year-round and their dining rooms have a fun nautical atmosphere. Their commercial fishing fleet offloads and ships millions of pounds of seafood yearly and much of the fresh seafood is served in their restaurant. They have indoor and outdoor seating with its own individual menu.

 

 

For dinner head over to Blue Big Tavern in Congress Hall. It’s a fun rustic dining room in a 200+ years old hotel. They are also farm to table so the produce is picked up daily from the Beach Plum Farm. To end the night, you can go at the Brown Room or Boiler Room, both of them are located in the same hotel and are serving amazing drinks and they also have live music.

 

 

 

Day three – Sunday

A few hours left in this beautiful Victorian town but still so much to see and do.

The sunrise in Cape May is one of the best, and if you haven’t seen it already, we would recommend wake up bright and early, grab a blanket and head over to the beach.

 

After sunrise, grab breakfast at another popular spot in Cape May, Uncle Bill’s Pancake House. They serve over 15 different types of pancakes, waffles, French toast, and omelets.  They have so many options and the serving size is big!
