Local Attractions & Things To Do

What is there to do in the local area for a group of “Empty Nester” campers?  Here’s a list to get you started:

 

  • Cold Springs Village: A replica 1700’s Village that offers a wonderful place to stroll, eat, drink, and step back in time:  10 minutes south on route 9
  • Cape May County Bike and Walking Path: Just across the street from the Campground it goes south for 3 miles and north for 8.  North bound will take you to the Cape May County Zoo and Park.
  • Cape May County Zoo and Park: Free Entry with donations appreciated.  Located north on the parkway just 10 miles.  Or ride a bike up the bike path to the zoo.  One of the top 15 facilities of its kind in the nation.  Take a lunch or eat at a number of concessions in the zoo.
  • Whale Watching: The Cape May Whale Watcher runs every day rain or shine.  It offers two and three hour cruises and even a dinner cruise replete with Prime Rib made by one of Cape May’s best restaurants, Lucky Bones.
  • Eco Tours: Right next to the Cape May Whale Watcher at Miss Chris Marina you can find a cool pontoon boat that will take you back into the marshes to enjoy the flora and fauna not seen elsewhere.  Run by Cape Water Tours and Taxi…5 star according to Trip Advisor.
  • Fishing: Go surf fishing at Cape May Point or join a group on the Miss Chris Fishing Vessel.  Leaves every morning from Miss Chris Marina at 8:00 sharp.  Stop at the Sandwich Witch to get great a great breakfast or a sandwich to take on board.
  • Shop until you drop on Cape May’s Famous Pedestrian Mall. Walk around the neighborhood of the mall and marvel at the famous Victorian Architecture all over Cape May.
  • Horse and Carriage Rides: Right across from the Star of the Seas Catholic Church.  A lovely steed will trot along the streets and byways of Cape May.  Your driver will give you an entertaining historical history of Cape May.
  • Trolley Rides: Available at the mall entrance.  Takes you all around the city with explanations of the homes and history.
  • Theaters: Frank’s Movies are just north of the campground on route 9.  Cape May offers three live stage companies:  Elaine’s Dinner Theater, Cape May Stage, and The East Lyme Theater.  All offer first class entertainment.
  • Vineyards: Our favorites are Cape May Winery, Natali’s, and Willow Creek.  Check them out on the web site.  Willow Creek is in West Cape May—definitely our favorite.  Many evenings they have entertainment and very good food.
  • Watch the Sunset on Sunset Beach: Just 20 minutes from the Campground and right near Willow Creek Winery is Sunset Beach.  If you catch a clear day the sunset is just out of this world.
  • Exhausted yet? Go to Wildwood and stroll on the Boards.  People Watching at its’ best and lots of things to do and places to eat.

 

Home at Last:  get a campfire going with your friends and relax with a cup of java or glass of wine before you collapse in bed.
