“Educational, Pretty, Quiet Beach”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

We spent a couple of days at this free, quiet, clean beach (unprotected so no swimming). Exhibits were interesting. Bird watching was nice.

“beatiful bird sanctuary”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

We enjoyed seeing the black skimmers this year and got to talk to knowledgeable bird watchers who were identifying a variety of terns. A lovely day!

“Great Scenic Location!”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

The only thing to do here is climb the lighthouse. Everything in the park is free, except the $7 fee to climb the lighthouse. There is beach access, but no lifeguards on duty. There are also nature trails for walking or bird watching. I have never been down these trails because I fear I would become infested with tics and other unruly pests like mosquitos. At one time there was a small reptile house, but I am not sure if it is still there.

“It is lovely at the top- after 199 spiral steps it better be”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Two adults, two toddlers and up we went. The cost is $7.00 per adult and a little less for kids ages 3-12. (coupon for kids to climb free). The boys were ridiculously young to do this so….they were FREE.

There are exactly 217 stairs to the top and 199 of them are spiral! At the top you can see the whole island of Cape May and Cape May Point while you are safely encased in a red cage. The cage goes the full 360 around the lighthouse but it is not wide and you will be competing for space to take pictures with the ocean in the background. Hear more about my family adventures and the rest of our trip to the Cape May Point Light house at Hipster Henry.com "The Parent's Guide to Philadelphia" http://www.hipsterhenry.com/2012/07/cape_may_lighthouse/
