Winter Activities

Where to eat, play & warm up in Cape May

Winter may bring a quiet beauty, but that doesn't mean the town falls asleep. Cape May is different from most East Coast resort spots in the sense that that things don't wind down after the summer — in fact, quite the opposite! Restaurants bustle, fireplaces roar, bars burst with live music and boutiques stock up on cold-weather fashion. Discover all there is to do on a winter retreat in Cape May.

HISTORY TOURS

at Congress Hall

Did you know that Congress Hall is the oldest seaside hotel in America? Or that four sitting presidents have stayed there? And that one of those presidents set up office in the hotel’s ground floor, establishing the first Summer White House? On a Congress Hall History Tour, you'll be guided through the grand hotel's storied past. Led by "Annie Knight" who owned the hotel from 1904-1931, our 60-minute History Tours are an interactive and engaging way to learn all about the Big House by the Sea.

It’s a phenomenon. Twice a year, every Spring and Fall, sensory experiences go on overload in Cape May when the Exit Zero Jazz Festival stages its world-class music fest. Music can be heard everywhere in Cape May—on the streets in the form of New Orleans style second line parades, in the clubs and restaurants bursting at the seams with music and energy and on the concert stages where international touring artists throw down at what has become known as one of the most respected and creative jazz festivals in the country.
