There are plenty of stores and restaurants so there is bound to be something for everyone! I definitely recommend stoping by here... More

We like strolling along the mall and checking out the new and older stores and restaurants. Well taken care of and a nice small town feel. I'd say a must see if visiting.

Washington Street Mall has a wide variety of shops. Seems to be much more than just beach tees. Art galleries, ice cream, restaurants...you name it....very interesting shops!!!

My wife and I walk the shops every time we visit Cape May. The do have a little bit of something for everyone. I like to people watch and what I noticed about this area is that most people are walking around with bags, meaning they are buying in the stores, a good sign.

You can wander through various stores and venues for 1-2 hours, perhaps have lunch in one of the many places to eat. The entire street is closed off to vehicles. Make this a definite stop. Try to get there right in the morning between 10-11 to get a parking spot.

We visiting Cape May primarily for the shopping. The entire Washington Street Mall can be walked through in about an hour or so, given that many of the shops were filled with low quality tourist souvenirs. We were disappointed and expected more.

Always a treat to hit the mall. Very little every changes, which means the shops we like are going to be there. Parking is cheap, if you can get a spot. $3.00 for 5 or 6 hrs. Always some good treats available and beverages. Ugly Mug is a must and the bakery and coffee shop. Don't miss the peanut butter... More

We visited this shopping area several times during our stay and thoroughly enjoyed walking around and going in and out of such interesting shops. Yes, parking is a real problem and we commented several times that if it's bad in October, imagine the summer months!. Take lots of quarters for the meters if you're lucky enough to find a parking...

Many restaurants and shops make this stop in Cape May a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. There is a great deal of variety of food from ice cream to seafood. There are craft shops, souvenir shops, clothing stores, and home goods. The street is closed to cars, so you can stroll at your leisure. A great place to stop... More

This is always a must visit on our annual Cape May vacation. Lots of quaint, local shops and unique finds. Nice to shop somewhere other than the boardwalk where virtually every shop offers the same items. People watching is fun and there are lots of benches to do so.
