If you’ve ever been to Cape May, you’ve probably seen quaint red and green trolleys rolling about. What you may not realize is that these trolleys offer a variety of unique tours that immerse visitors in the history and culture of Cape May.
Visitors can tour the major historical sites and landmarks of the region in a trolley vehicle with Cape May Trolley Tour. During the tour, the guide explains the historical and cultural significance of each stop.
The tours are run by a wonderful non-profit organization, the Mid-Atlantic Center For The Arts. Founded in 1970, MAC has done so much for the city over the years. They’ve restored notable landmarks including the Emlen Physick Estate and Cape May Lighthouse, launched the Cape May Music Festival and offer a wide selection of events year-round. Their volunteers are dedicated and knowledgeable, offering top notch trolley tours.
What I love most about the MAC trolley tours is that there’s something for everyone. Options include a Welcome To Cape May tour for first time visitors, Ghosts Of Cape May tour, focused on the city’s supernatural residents and a Mansions By The Sea tour highlighting the Victorian architecture of the area. You’ll also find the Cape Mayhem interactive trolley tour which allows passengers to explore some of the area’s strange superstitions and curious events, historic tour, children’s tour and lighthouse tour. During the holiday season, enchanting Christmas trolley tours are available.
