Railroad tracks uncovered on beach

A stretch of rusted railroad tracks is visible on Lower Township beaches between Sunset Beach and Higbee. The tracks once led to the Cape May Sand Plant and haven’t been visible since the 1930s. [source]

If you want to see the tracks yourself, our photographer Michelle recommends parking at Sunset Beach and hiking up the beach toward Higbee.

The Fairthorne closes


The Fairthorne Cottage B&B has sold and will not operate for the 2015 season. It joins a handful of other B&Bs that closed their doors this past year. We’ve been told the property at 115 Ocean Street will be used privately.
