All of us here in Cape May are just overwhelmed (in a good way) with the number of visitors who are coming here this summer.  We’re sure this is one of the best seasons that anyone has seen in years. double rainbowWhy, you ask?  Well, Cape May seems to have reached new levels of exposure to what we think is the whole world! Look through our past blogs to see the “Best Of” lists that Cape May has been honored to receive mention! Luckily, we’ve been ready for our close-up for a long time! In fact, just the other day, right around dusk, Facebook exploded with tons of gorgeous photos of a gorgeous double rainbow. Spectacular!

Just remember that at this time of year, there are a lot of visitors who are new to town and not yet comfy with traffic patterns, so be sure to give bikers and walkers a little wider berth!
