Cape May New Jersey Activities

Cape May, New Jersey Activities

Cape May is the New Jersey shore town with something for everyone, every season of the year.

Our beaches are clean and inviting. For those who enjoy an early morning run, you can watch the sun rise over the ocean, then head back to Bayberry Inn for a sumptuous three-course breakfast.

Speaking of food, Cape May is home to some of the best fine dining in New Jersey. Many of those restaurants are within walking distance of the Bayberry Inn!

Spend the day relaxing on the beach or taking a walk along the waves to the Cape May Lighthouse. (You can climb to the top!) Watch spectacular sunsets every evening over the water.

For a taste of Cape May's history, take any of several different tours being offered by the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts, such as the Ghosts of Cape May Trolley Tour or the Delaware Bay Lighthouse Adventure.

Nature lovers can take off for a day of birding or nature walks. Cape May is recognized as an international bird migration spot.

Horse and carriage rides are always a treat (and very romantic with that someone special!)

Cape May Outdoor Shopping Mall

In early winter, Christmas in Cape May is a must do. See the town ablaze in lights.

Anyone who loves professional quality theater is sure to enjoy an evening at Cape May Stage or East Lynne Theater Company.

Our spring Music Festival every May and June features performances by a variety of musicians.

The Food and Wine Festival in September, Victorian Week in October and Sherlock Holmes Weekend and the Cape May NJ State Film Festival in November keep things busy during the fall.
