We took a walk along this pedestrian mall and found the shops and ambience very charming. We stop for a juice/coffee and confirmed our Trolley Tour time at the little kiosk building by the Christmas store on Ocean Street. Great people watching too. Only a block from the information center and ferry shuttle drop off.

Washington Street Mall is a vibrant pedestrian area a few blocks long, and the central shopping area for tourists when they're off the beach in Cape May. There are numerous specialty shops and restaurants dotted throughout the Mall, and the people- and dog-watching is excellent.

We didn't end up buying anything here but we did go out to lunch while we were here. The shops are so cute and even just walking around and window shopping and going into the stores to look at things was fun.

Ever since my wife and I came to this place a few years ago, we make it a habit to go there a few times every year. The stores are always fun to visit! This place has more to offer to adults but still enough for whole families to visit. I just wish some of the places to eat were... More

Small, but some nice shops and restaurants. I love A Place on Earth and Good Scents. We always spend some time going into shops and just walking around when we visit Cape May.

It's all about shopping- if you want it, then go here. If not, then there's not going to be much to hold your interest (such as, if you're with a bunch of antsy, hyperactive kids). At least there is something for just about every kind of shopper- art, books, kitchen gadgets, toys, clothing, jewelry, taffy, fudge... the list goes on... More

Our family walked around the Mall for a few hours during the day. Lots of eating and shopping options. Beautiful spot to spend a day or evening.

Washington Street Mall is a fun outdoor mall. There are some unique stores to visit along with very good places to eat. A must see!

I have been here both during the day and at night. During the day is great. It's exactly what these small tourist towns should off. Cute little shops and restaurants. But at night. We came here at night just to walk off our dinner. I was so surprise how alive it was. Tons of people everywhere. Really fun. Really nice.... More

I've been visiting this spot for years - miss some of the old venues, but there always are new ones to take their place! Something here for everyone - food, pubs, ice cream, fudge, books, clothes, nick-nacks, souvenirs - you name it. All in a compact 3 block area. This is a great family destination - highly recommended!
