It just dawned on me when my niece called to find out what children's activities there are in the Cape May area that I have never covered that. Here are my favorite places to take my grandchildren:
1. Cape May Point State Park
There are so many activities here that I don't know where to start! From shows and activities for the children to the nature trails that go throughout the park this is a place to spend the day. There are nice clean restrooms and a beach that can't be beat. There is NO swimming allowed due to the lack of lifeguards but sunbathing and walking in the surf is wonderful! Don't forget the lighthouse--I actually walked up all those 199 steps with my grandkids (only once!) and what a view you will get! Don't forget that the state park is a a well-known location for viewing the fall bird migration too. The park is open from dawn to dusk and there is no admission charge.
2. Cape May County ZOO
Yes folks, there is a great zoo right off the parkway in Cape May County and it's FREE! Donations are excepted and well worth it. There is a fun playground, picnic areas, food stands and all the great animals. You will definitely be amazed that such a fabulous zoo is located here. Don't miss it!
3. Miniature Golf for the Family
There are several places in the Cape May area to play miniature golf. There is a nice one right upon Beach Avenue is you are staying the Cape May and can walk, otherwise, parking can be tough in the summer! There is also the Cape May Miniature Golf Club located on Jackson St which has some good ice cream too!
Check out the new miniature golfing down at the end of Sunset Blvd. It's fun and the perfect place to play and then get a cold soda or some lunch/dinner at the food stand overlooking the concrete ship. Great to be there at sundown for the moving flag ceremony too.
