I love the unique shops and open-air, no traffic of the Washington Street Mall. There is something for everyone. Purchases I made were books, jewelry, Christmas ornaments, bath bombs, hat and scarf, fudge and salt water taffey.

Unique shops with affordably priced, but quality, merchandise. Nice selections for young and old, as well as several grab n go food choices.

Centrally located to shops, bed and breakfasts, the beach, and most hotels, the Washington Street Mall is a perfect place to dine, view art galleries, and shop for summer clothes and souvenirs. While this is a very popular place for the summer, the mall is also a hit during the weekend of the Cape May Christmas Parade in December!

I visited in July 2016 while on family vacation. We came here numerous nights after spending the day on the beach. It's nice to be able to stroll around and shop a little and grab some ice cream! 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.

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
