cape may in December after Sandy


I wanted to go to Cape May during off season (never been there before). After Sandy would it be ok to go for a day or two in a week or two? I would be going with my sister. We could drive there Friday morning or evening and leave Saturday pm (coming from Lancaster county). Should we spend more or less time while at Cape May? We would like to walk on the beach, maybe do a little hiking, walk around the town, shop and maybe spend a couple hours at the spa. Is it a reasonable plan? Is there anything else we could do?

Thnka you

I suggest to try to include the zoo in your visit. It's free, and donations are gladly accepted

I am not sure whether or not you have been to Cape May before or just haven't been there off season. Prior to Christmas, there are tours of homes that are beautifully decorated. Of course, weather could alter any plans.
