Uncategorized - admin - February 13, 2019

What to Pack Congratulations! You’ve made the decision to get away from the stress of life and treat yourself to a beautiful beach vacation in Cape May! But, before you set out on your travels, you need to make sure you have some “beach essentials” that will allow you to enjoy your vacation to the fullest. We’re giving you the inside scoop on beach fashion, making sure you don’t weigh down your suitcase with things you don’t need!

The following attire is basically acceptable anywhere you go on the beach, including restaurants, bars, shops, etc. Here are a few things we suggest:

Ladies should pack: Bathing suits (If you have 2, bring both so you’ll always have one that’s dry. Also, you will most likely be leaving with a tan! So, be mindful of styles that may give you funny looking tan lines.) Bathing suit cover up Sundresses Tank tops or short sleeved, lightweight shirts Comfortable shorts or skirts One lightweight, long sleeved shirt (if you’ve been swimming & sunning all day, sometimes the air conditioning inside can feel chilly) Flip flops that can get wet or water shoes Flip flops or sandals for going out in the evening.

Men should pack: Hawaiian or lightweight, breezy shirts T-Shirts or Polos Swim trunks Lightweight shorts or khakis, (some men wear jeans in the bars at night, but shorts are always more comfortable) One lightweight, long sleeved shirt Flip flops that can get wet or water shoes Flip flops or deck shoes for going out in the evening Everyone Should Bring: Sunglasses Sunscreen Lip Balm Spending Cash (the beach shopping is great!)

Pet Friendly Rentals in Cape May

Uncategorized - admin - January 14, 2019

Travelers love to take their pets on vacation. Sometimes out of necessity and other times just love having the dog along. Cape May is a dog town. Walk down any street and your bound to see someone chatting with a dog owner walking their dog. We happen to have a breed that is not well known, a shipperkke or skipper-key as many folks call him. Funny thing about Cape May most people know what breed our dog is. That is why I find Cape May to be a dog town.

One of the great things about our town is that many rentals are now pet friendly. Owners of rentals realize that they can fill their calendars when offering pet friendly rentals. Many rentals have restrictions on pets including size and sometimes even breed. Check with the owner on any restrictions that may be in place.

All dogs need a little exercise and some rentals have fenced in yards. Also there is a great dog park located on Lafayette Street up the road a bit from the Acme.

Cape May has some great places to walk your dog. During the off season dogs are allowed on the beach and promenade. Dogs are allowed on Higbee Beach year round. Cape May requires that your dog must be leashed at all times.

So bring the pet to Cape May and maybe I will see you walking the streets. It’s always great to meet new friends while out walking the dog.

The Washington Street Mall in Cape May

Uncategorized - admin - January 14, 2019

The Washington Street Mall in Cape May is a wonderful outdoor mall with fantastic shops and restaurants. Many visitors take a slow walk through the outdoor mall along the brick lined street and enjoy all types of places to shop and eat. No bikes are allowed, only foot traffic which makes it very safe and enjoyable. Located about a block to the beach, this favorite shoppers location is open throughout the year. Visitors can browse candy stores, jewelry shops, clothing stores, and boutiques that stock unique souvenirs. Be aware that some shops do close during the off-season. Usually January thru Valentines Day or even March.

Another great feature about the mall ate the park benches that line the mall. Relax with an ice cream cone and people watch or sit beside the fountains that offer a misty breeze during the summer months. There are many restaurants offering American fare, fresh seafood and so much more.

Located right off of the mall area is the town park. During the summer months there are live concerts featuring local musicians.

Located at the beginning of the mall where Washington Street ends is the ticket booth for trolley rides. Make sure you book your rides early as the trolleys fill quickly for the day and night rides. Accross the street travelers can take a Cape May Carriage ride with beautiful horses.

When visiting Cape May, The Washington Street Mall is a must do. A stroll down the mall is a great way to spend an evening or take a break from the beach.
