Holiday Lights Trolley Tour

Who can resist the twinkle of Cape May’s beautiful Victorian homes decorated for Christmas? This trolley ride through the historic streets of Cape May is a delight.

Cape May MAC blankets are available for purchase at the Washington Street Mall Information Booth and the Physick Estate. Tour begins and ends at the trolley stop on Ocean Street.

Lights and Love Holiday Kickoff

50th Anniversary Lighting Project – Thanks to combined generosity of merchants and supportive individuals, the Washington Mall is looking festive with new lights ! We’ll be hosting a celebratory event on Black Friday, at the Rotary Clock . “Lights and Love Holiday Kick-off” will feature Victorian Santa, music, and a few words of welcome . We invite all visitors and residents to bring a non-perishable food item to support the Cape May Food Closet, as the Mall is officially illuminated for the season ! The local  Food Closet is in dire need of donations, and we are pleased to collaborate on this project with Cape May City Chamber of Commerce.   The Mall will be decorated with holiday greenery and new banners. Please join us !

All That Glitters Trolley Tour


The year is 1899.  A dear friend of the family has volunteered to help with the final preparations for the very important New Year’s Day Celebration.  She wants to consolidate a shopping trip for the necessities to avoid making numerous trips.  Join her as we travel through town making plans for this important endeavor, and then we will go to the Physick Estate to meet the family as they prepare the house for the holidays.

Tours start at 11:45, 1:00 or 2:15
