AROUND TOWN

THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER THERE ARE LOTS OF THINGS HAPPENING AROUND THE WILDWOODS AND CAPE MAY. THERE’S SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE TO DO AND SEE. FESTIVALS, CONCERTS, AND SPECIAL EVENTS HAPPEN EVERY WEEK. THE BEACHES PROVIDE ENTERTAINMENT ALL DAY. IF YOU NEED A BREAK FROM THE SUN YOU CAN TAKE A STROLL IN CAPE MAY ON THE OUTDOOR MALL, VISIT A WINERY OR BREWERY, OR PAMPER YOURSELF AT A SPA. VISIT THE LIGHTHOUSES IN NORTH WILDWOOD AND CAPE MAY, WALK THE GROUNDS, AND TAKE A TOUR. HEAD TO THE CAPE MAY ZOO WHICH IS A BLAST IN THE SUN OR RAIN. AT NIGHT THE BOARDWALK WITH ITS BRIGHT LIGHTS AND RIDES WILL DELIGHT EVERYONE. IF YOU’RE FEELING COMPETITIVE GO FOR A ROUND OF MINI GOLF AT ONE OF THE MANY COURSES AND THEN GET SOME ICE CREAM TO CAP OFF THE DAY!

THE BEACHES

WILDWOOD’S BEACHES ARE TOUGH TO BEAT. MILES OF SOFT WHITE SAND BEACHES LINE THE ISLAND. THERE’S LOTS OF SPACE TO SPREAD OUT WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. WE LOVE TO BOOGIE BOARD AND BODY SURF THE WAVES OR SIT IN A CHAIR AND READ A BOOK, LISTENING TO THE WAVES CRASH GENTLY.

ON THE WATER

THE WILDWOODS ARE ON ONE 5 MILE ISLAND WITH THE ATLANTIC OCEAN ON ONE SIDE AND SUNSET LAKE ON THE OTHER WHICH OPENS UP TO THE CAPE MAY INLET. ENJOY PADDLE BOARDING, JET SKIS, OR KAYAKING. FOR A BIRD’S EYE VIEW GO ON A PARASAILING TRIP. FISHING EXCURSIONS, DOLPHIN WATCHING CRUISES, AND SPEEDBOAT RIDES TAKE OFF EVERYDAY THROUGHOUT THE DAY.

DINING

WE HAVE LOTS OF FAVORITES ON THE ISLANDS THAT ARE MUST STOPS EACH SEASON! START THE MORNING WITH AN APPLE FRITTER FROM BRITTON’S BAKERY. HAVE LUNCH ON THE BEACH AND ORDER A SANDWICH FROM PRIMO HOAGIES (THEY DELIVER!) OR STOP BY THE CREST TAVERN WHICH IS JUST A FEW BLOCKS FROM THE MOTEL FOR A BURGER. THE SURFING PIG IS A FUN OUTDOOR RESTAURANT IN NORTH WILDWOOD WHICH IS ON THE BAY SIDE AND HAS LIVE MUSIC. FOR A NICER MEAL HEAD TO ALFE’S (DON’T BE SCARED OFF BY THE BOWLING ALLEY ABOVE, IT’S DELICIOUS!!) IF YOU WANT TO JUST RELAX AND STAY IN ORDER FROM CRAB CAKE HOTLINE. THE CAKES ARE HUGE AND FULL OF CRAB….WE WANT ONE RIGHT NOW…

CAPE MAY

CAPE MAY IS A SPECIAL TOWN FULL OF GINGERBREAD HOUSES AND LOTS OF CHARM. THE SHOPS ALONG THE WASHINGTON STREET MALL HAVE SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE. COLD SPRING VILLAGE OFFERS A LIVE HISTORY VIEW OF LIFE IN THE EARLY YEARS OF AMERICA. WE HAVE OUR FAVORITE PLACES TO EAT HERE TOO! THE CVIEW IS A LOCAL BAR WITH GREAT WINGS. THE HARBOR VIEW IS FUN FOR LUNCH WITH OUTDOOR SEATING ON A PIER, WE LOVE THE CONCH FRITTERS. SECONDO IS A RESTAURANT ALONG THE WAY TO CAPE MAY THAT HAS A NICE ATMOSPHERE AND A TASTY ITALIAN MENU. FOR A DRINK OUR FAVORITE PLACE IS THE CHALFONTE HOTEL. ENJOY IT ON THE PORCH IN A BIG ROCKING CHAIR.
