What to do in Cape May

Cape May Lighthouse



Lighthouse Avenue
Cape May Point
(609) 884-8656

The present tower, which is the third documented lighthouse at the southern tip of New Jersey, has always been an attention-getting landmark as well as an aid-to-navigation for mariners. It was built in 1859. Because it is adjacent to the community of Cape May Point and just two miles from the city of Cape May, NJ, it has drawn visitors throughout its history.
