You might think of Cape May as a summer-only destination, but it’s beautiful here year-round. Our off season is quiet, and there isn’t as much to do during the week like there is in the height of August, but if you’re looking for somewhere less crowded to spend Valentine’s Day, keep us on your list. Here’s our guide to what’s happening this year.

Congress Hall kicked off their holiday celebrations with their annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony and Holiday Concert on December 6th. This year’s tree is an impressive 32-foot Blue Spruce, which was donated by the Brinkman family of North Cape May.
The 2013 Easter Fashion Stroll, sponsored by the City of Cape May, the Washington Street Mall Merchants and the Chamber of Commerce of Greater Cape May, prevailed even though light showers threatened to dampen the day mid-way through the judging. But both the judges and the participants braved on. Mayor Edward Mahaney, Jr. presided over the event. Prizes were awarded according to age, gender and Easter attire and all donated by the Mall merchants and surrounding businesses.
