What is there to do in Cape May when it's raining?
Rainy days are often more crowded in Cape May due to an influx of people from nearby shore communities that have less to do when the sun is hidden. Hit the shops along the Washington Street Mall or duck into a restaurant to wait out the rain. If lightning is spotted, lifeguards will close the beaches.
