Love Cape May Weekend


One of the most common questions we receive during the off-season is “What is there to do in Cape May right now?” There’s a funny misconception that winter means we close our doors–all of them. I’ve been asked, more times than I can count, if Cape May is open in the winter months.

That’s one of the reasons we began compiling this holiday weekend guide for the Valentine’s Day/Presidents’ Day Weekend, to let people know that, indeed, we’re open. And we’d love for you to come down.

This year, enjoy special lodging packages at Cape May accommodations, including the Virginia, Grand Hotel, Mission Inn, The Harrison, John Wesley Inn, and the Carroll Villa. Romantic fixed-price menus are available at a selection of your favorite restaurants: the Ebbitt Room, Mad Batter, Washington Inn, Blue Pig Tavern, Blue Rose Inn, Elaine’s, and Willow Creek Winery. We’re also compiling a list of shop hours, and events and leisure activities happening that holiday weekend.

Winter Storm Jonas hits Cape May

Outside, it’s soggy, with temperatures above freezing, partially melting the snow that fell yesterday. The sky is solid gray. Winter Storm Jonas is blowing through New Jersey, flooding nearby barrier islands, and its wind gusts have knocked out power in parts of Cape May County.

Cape May experienced some flooding this morning during high tide, around 7:30am, but our three staff members who live on the island haven’t been forced to leave home (in fact, they have plans to meet at the C-View). There will likely be more flooding tonight at high tide. Bernie ventured out into the wind and took these photographs along Beach Avenue this afternoon.
