Summer Pictorial

Summer is in full swing. Cape May’s streets are crowded with bicyclists, surreys, and horse-drawn carriages, and some sights of summer bring a smile to your face no matter how old you are. Walking the Washington Street Mall, it is almost impossible to pass by the Original Fudge Kitchen and not partake of a “free sample.” Kids love simple pleasures like playing in the water fountains and  getting an ice cream cone. Visitors and locals alike can be seen sitting on the Mall benches or dining outside – watching the people go by.

During the day there are so many things to do and so little time when you are on vacation. Standing in line along Jackson Street for Hot Dog Tommy hot dog is a the top of the Must-Do lists. Walking down to the Cove Beach at sunset, with the lighthouse in the distance, watching the sun set is right up there as well.

And for those who life a more active time – paddleboarding, surfing and boogie boarding are the tops. And at night, a walk along the Promenade often leads to an evening at the Arcade or a concert in our brand spanking new Convention Hall.

Those who vacation with their pets need not feel left out either. More and more accommodations and restaurants are pet friendly. Just this summer The Blue Pig Restaurant’s outdoor venue at Congress Hall and the Rusty Nail on Beach Avenue have opened up to pet friendly dining. Zoe’s across from Convention Hall on Beach Avenue has always been pet friendly.

There’s something for everyone in Cape May. From all of us to all of you, we hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and your stay here in Cape May.
