Cape May is Blooming….

The sounds, sights and smells of Spring are all around town… Longer days, fragrant flowers fill the air, trees beginning to bloom, birds chirping and seagulls squealing with excitement of the beach picnics to come. Dolphins and “whales” have been sighted dancing in the bay. The cold winds are receding and are being replaced with the gentle breezes of Spring.

 

 

The upcoming season will be here before you know it. Before you have your bathing suits on, your toes in the sand and all over the house, now is the time that you can enjoy Cape May’s pre-season events.

 

 

It’s also the last chance to rent a beautiful Cape May vacation home for a partial week. What’s better than enjoying a few days in town before the crowds arrive for the Summer season? Come on down; relax, unwind and enjoy Cape May at it’s fullest!

So many things to see and do during Cape May’s Spring Celebration, now through May 19. There’s something for everyone to experience and enjoy in Spring 2019.

 

If Bingo is your game, there’s the Brunch and Bingo at the Beach. Or, if you enjoy our wonderful New Jersey wines, hop on the Cape May Wine Trail.  And for those chocolate lover’s, you must make a reservation for the Chocolate Lover’s Feast at the Washington Inn on May 11th – an event you can’t miss.

 

 

Take that special woman in your life to brunch on Mother’s Day.  So many choices … enjoy a beachfront brunch at Aleathea’s at the Inn, or on the farm at Beach Plum Farm, and for jazz lovers, the Emlin Physick Estate offers a Jazz brunch.  Click here for more suggestions of places to celebrate Mom. 

 

 

On Saturday, May 11th, enjoy the Sip Into Spring Festival at the Emlin Physick Estate.  Come and celebrate spring’s rebirth with exciting outdoor gardening demonstrations, food, wine and music.  Enjoy demonstrations and crafts.  You can even make your own personal succulent tea cup!  Great local vendors will be there serving their finest fares.

 

 

Both dolphins and whales have been sighted playing in the waters off the coast, in both the ocean and bay this blooming spring. Be sure to book a trip while visiting Cape May. Trips are daily: Dolphin and Whale Watching.
