FOR ALL SEASONS...
Cape May City is so much more than a beach town, though the lovely beaches and harbor certainly enhance the atmosphere and add
to the opportunities for enjoyment.
This campaign promotes patronage at local Bed & Breakfasts, Inns, Hotels, Restaurants, Taverns, Clothing and Gift Boutiques, Art Galleries,
Jewelry Stores, Toy Stores, Book Stores, Surf Shops, and Candy Shops. Buying local doesn't have to even involve buying, just participating
in the wonderful variety of events and festivals happening throughout the year as you can see further down on the page.
Cape May Geocaching
In addition to the many shopping and dining opportunities mentioned above and the plethora of events summarized below, there is a wonderful way to get to know Cape May any time of year with the help of your GPS. The hunt is on with Cache the Cape, a geocaching game created by a local student. GEOCACHING, according to geocaching.com is a real-world outdoor treasure hunting game. Players try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using GPS-enabled devices and then share their experiences online.
IN THE FALL...
the foliage of the City´s many and magnificent trees explode with color. Events not to be missed include Victorian Weekend, Oktoberfest, Halloween festivities, The Food and Wine Festival, The Harvest Festival, Sherlock Holmes Weekend and a number of arts and crafts shows, to name a few.
IN THE WINTER...
Cape May glistens in the light of the holidays with tree lighting events at Cape May landmarks and lovely
decor that brightens the homes, inns, shops, and restaurants. Of course Cape May is not all about seeing, but about doing.
Throughout the holiday season there are craft shows, candlelight tours, Christmas parades, and the specialty shops that just may hold
that gift that will be treasured.
WHEN SPRING HAS SPRUNG...
there are festivals about flowers and gardens, festivals celebrating the culture of Cape May, festivals for crafts and antiques, and the Cape May Music Festival. Events for enthusiasts of the natural side of Cape May include the Boat Show, the World Series of Birding, the Great Cape Footrace, the Strawberry Festival and, of course, Harborfest.
the beach and bay beckon, the streets fill up with people, the sky lights up with fireworks and the activities are endless. Some special events include lifeguard competitions, a volleyball tournament, Captain Kidd Treasure Hunt, art shows, auto shows, craft shows, the Baby Parade, a sand sculpture contest, the Peach Festival, and fishing tournaments. These are only a few of the opportunities to step away from the norm and appreciate all that Cape May has to offer.
