Well, it is another Memorial Day Weekend here at Holly Shores Camping Resort in Cape May. On this blog I am going to keep you abreast of everything going on both here and elsewhere in the area which I hope you will find interesting and helpful.
Hot off the press from the Cape May Star and Wave- Cape May Island is declared a Community Wildlife Habitat! The entire Island of Cape May has been recognized by the National Wildlife Federation. This includes Cape May City, West Cape May, Cape May Point, and Lower Township! According to the President of the New Jersey Audubon we are in the middle of the “mega highway of migration” for birds in North America. Our area provides the habitat necessary to feed, nest, and raise the young for many species of birds, and mammals. Hurray for Cape Island!!
Here at Holly Shores we have owls, red tail hawks, and nesting night Herons! Just start looking up and you will begin to see their nests!! Check out the Nature Trail that leads to the New Jersey State Fishery
area adjacent to the Camping Resort. You will surely find many more feathered friends and you can even catch a fish or two—just toss them back in please!

For the two legged species that visits and habitats in the area we have just received national attention for the efforts Cape May is making to offer safe beaches for our families and visitors. The U.S. Life Saving Association only recognized 5 other beach communities in the United States for the efforts the local communities have taken to safe guard the enjoyment of the beach.
Memorial Day at the Shore is replete with countless venues to enjoy. At Holly Shores we have many activities planned including a cook out by the pool, a high heel race for the guys to raise money for the fight against cancer, flag ceremony, pie eating contest, wet and wild hay ride and much more!
Cape May offers a wonderful Web Site: www.discovercapemaynj.com. You will find a listing of all the planned activities in Cape May for the next two years! If you get this soon enough you can go and see the Atlantic Brass Band at the Rotary Bandstand tomorrow night at 7PM. On Monday there will be a Memorial Day Moment at the Convention Center at 11 A.M. And last, but not least, Cape May Restaurant Week beginning on June 4-11. Get a wonderful meal at a famous Cape May restaurant during this once a year event.
