Top Answers To Cape May Travel Questions
Hi, I have stayed at some nice "full service" sites like Cape Island , Holly Shores, and the Beachcomber. When the kids were small, we liked those places for the activities. As we aged, all we did was go to the beach so the full service sites were not worth it. We love the peace and tranquility of The Depot. No frills but clean washrooms, quiet hours that are respected, and only 1 mile to the beach. Best of luck Laura.
Answer this1 AnswerAlthough the weather's cooling (average temps in the low to mid 50s) and it's the off-season, Cape May is definitely not shuttered up in November. Events include the Cape May Jazz Festival (November 7-9) and nature walks to catch the tail end of the Atlantic flyway's big fall bird migration.

Answer this1 AnswerHi Peg, To get your beach tags, you buy them the first day you walk on the beach. There are vendors at every entrance. Last year's rates (I believe they are the same this year) were 5$ a day, 10$ for 3 days, 13$ a week (Sat - Sat) and 25$ per season. By the way, children under 12 can go on the beach for free. It is a great spot ... enjoy
Answer this1 AnswerI'd try the bay side beaches in Cape May Point at low tide. There is a lot less beach glass than there used to be but there is some to be found.
