Great view of the Atlantic Ocean, Delaware Bay, and Cape May. It's a lot of stairs to climb, but well worth it.
This was a birthday gift, what a surprise. I have been to Cape May many, many times. I have always stayed at a traditional B&B which were very lovely and nice. I have walked by the Carroll Villa many times. Thought oh that seems to busy and not your normal B&B. Wow was I wrong. This is a beautiful place... More
If you enjoy getting a little physical exercise along with your vacation (as we do) you may want to consider renting a bicycle and taking a nice excursion out to the lighthouse from Cape May proper. The shortest route, is on Sunset Boulevard's designated wide bike lane, then taking a left at Seagrove Ave. down to the next left, on... More
The Cape May Lighthouse is a very nice lighthouse, but somehow I just don't see it as an attraction worth too much reviewing, unless you're really a connoisseur of lighthouses.

At each resting point, there's a window where you can lookout and educational pictures and maps about the lighthouse. Each window... More
We visited in February when there were limited events happening. The lighthouse was a great outing - the staff was friendly and informative. Plus, you can't beat the view!
It was a workout to get to the top but really worth it for the view! We enjoyed reading about the history of the lighthouses and looking at the pictures as we worked our way to the top. Nice little gift shop as well.
We make it a point to visit the Cape May Lighthouse each time we are in Cape May. The climb is fun (my wife sometimes skips the climb due to being Claustrophobic) and worth it when you get to the top. My advice is to save the climb for a very clear day without haze or limited visibility. It is... More
