We hike here along the beach from town. Always quiet. Wildlife everywhere. Watched a muskrat paddling about for about an hour. Bring water if it is hot, and binoculars if you've got 'em

Have never seen wild swans before and this was a wonderful experience. Took some great pictures and would have benefited from some binoculars and birding info but this was a nice break in the day.

It's great to go out on the ramp and look for birds. The building is air conditioned and good water is nearby. The displays are s o interesting because it shows the natural side of the shore.

The staff at the nature center are all very nice to deal with. There knowledge of the local wildlife is endless. This is a great place to take kids for a hands on learning experiance, They offer guided tours in kayaks at a very good price. I believe this is one of the best ways to see Cape May.

A clean, organized and for the most part free attraction to take in while touring the great South Jersey coastline. They offer programs at various times of the year for a small fee. There is a nice picnic area to use and a great view or two from the "lookout" deck. It's place to visit for adults and older children... More

The Nature Center of Cape May. Is a great place to visit, especially for bird lovers in the fall. They have marches with plenty of overlooks. You can walk along the beach and there are plenty of Nature trails to hike and see many verities of Birds.
