Explore the City of Cape May

With a permanent population of 3,800 residents, Cape May plays host to 45,000 vacationers during the summer weekends without compromising its tranquil, slow-paced, and relaxing atmosphere.  In addition, based upon seasonally warm weather in the spring and fall, the City has evolved into a town for all seasons with a presentation of a comprehensive selection of themed festivals and diversified events reflecting the embracing of the arts, culture, and history into our fabric. 

As a walkable and cycling-friendly community with tree-lined streets, visitors can leisurely enjoy the vast inventory of architecturally resplendent and historical structures which are tastefully adorned with beautifully maintained gardens and landscaping.  Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Delaware Bay, and Cape May Harbor and Canal, Cape May is still a committed steward of its priceless and pristine environmental assets which enable year round beach activities, commercial and recreational fishing, exploration of natural resources, sailing and boating, and appreciation of highly sensitive wetlands, wildlife, and indigenous vegetative species.
