Cape May NJ Promenade BoardwalkThe Promenade

Cape May's promenade runs parallel to Beach Avenue and stretches for nearly two miles, taking you on a scenic walk or run past Cape May's spectacular beaches. Though it's referred to as the "Boardwalk," our promenade is actually paved (the last wooden boardwalk was destroyed in the 1962 nor'easter).

The promenade is your gateway to the beach and unparalleled views of the ocean. There are a handful of businesses along the way, including candy stores, arcades, and ice cream.

The end of the promenade (or the beginning, we suppose, depending on your point of view) is a covered pavilion that overlooks the Cove beach and is a popular location for weddings.
