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.

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.
