I've been going to Cape May most of my life and I try to get to Washington Street Mall every time. There are so many unique shops, great restaurants and cafés with outdoor seating, art galleries, a beautiful church, fountains, and it's right in the center of town close to everything. It's a short walk from the beach and the... More

Whatever you need can be found here and it's just a pleasant place to be. We mostly eat ice cream, have fresh lemonade, eat lunch or dinner and visit the kitchen, bath and clothing stores.

It was a nice set of shops. Better experienced in the sun, not the rain like we had. However, the shops we visited had great merchandise.

Washington Square is a cute place to walk around and shop, either for gifts to take home or for yourself! We visited all kinds of little shops and found fresh ground coffee, salt water taffy, a Swedish themed gift shop and more. Even if shopping isn't your thing, it's a very pretty area to take a walk through.

A four block mall area in the center of the city with lots of small shops and places to enjoy lunch and dinner. Need a break? There are lots of benches in the sun and shade to sit and people watch. "Comfort Stations" easy to find.

My book club was just in Cape May for a weekend getaway (our second time to this location) and going to the Washington Street Mall was one of our ‘must do’ activities. There are so many different shops of all varieties along the mall that anyone can find a shop or two to browse. The mall is brick covered and... More

Lots of shops and places to eat. Had some pizza, bought a scarf at the Oriental Imports, benches to sit on if you want, metered parking took credit cards.

Really ... there is something for everyone in the Washington Street Mall area of Cape May. Early September, it was still a little tough to find parking ... we did find a church you could park at for a donation ... I can't imagine parking during the height of tourist season. BUT ... it is a great little area ...... More
