We took the historic Cape May tour. The guide was funny and knowledgeable. They really show you many of the historic landmarks in Cape May and give you a history lesson to boot. Even found some places we wanted to go back to during the tour.

The website had given limited times for tours, but the kiosk on Washington St. Mall had more choices, which was good. So you board the trolley... More
