Destination Guide - Fun In Cape May
Park FREE and ride the trolley!Trolley Map
Cape May is a seaside town with white sand bathing beaches offering views of glorious sunrises and sunsets. The boardwalk, otherwise known as the Promenade, is active with walkers, bikers, and the young at heart enjoying arcade games.
Visitors love exploring the Victorian architecture and local history. Walking along gas lit tree lined streets and watching horse drawn carriages clip clop by grand old homes, one can not escape the charm of days gone by, when life moved at a slower pace in a more graceful era. A great way to see the town is to rent a bike for the week or by the hour, whether you choose a beach cruiser or surrey bike for 6 people.
For the adventurous spirit water sports such as jet skis, parasail and kayaks are available. Surfers of all levels ride the swells at designated beaches and boogie boarders can be seen on all beaches. The avid boater can find deep sea fishing excursions or enjoy an outing just off shore. The rock piles are busy with fishermen trying their luck without leaving the shore and surf fishing off Poverty Beach as well.
Just a few miles outside the city limits Cape May National Golf Course is waiting with a challenging course built around a private bird sanctuary. Travel a few more miles and treat the family to an 18 hole course at Cape May Par 3 & Driving Range. The nature lover will delight in the region with world class bird watching (download the Cape May Bird & Butterfly Map here) and guided eco tours of the delicate coastal environment. The discerning guest can appreciate the arts visiting galleries and attending local theatre productions.
