    Breakfast in Cape May

    Breakfast in Cape May is a wonderful thing! There’s literally so many options that it can make your head spin. I covered bakeries and coffee shops in two prior posts, so I’ll stick to sit-down breakfast for this one. Where to begin??? I know a lot of people are somewhat passionate about breakfast, as am I. There are some really strong opinions about favorites, and it can be quite a debate. I’ll do my best to cover the breakfast scene (feel free to silently insert the word brunch if that resonated more with you) in Cape May. Warning—this will be a long post. Note each link takes you directly to…

    e-Beach Wagons-the Ultimate Beach Cart

    I hesitated when I was first approached about writing a blog post about e-Beach Wagon in Cape May. As you may know, as part of my goal of giving back a little, I write complimentary posts for small businesses and new authors/artists. Just a few examples are: Bayshore Design Studio, Cape May Beach Reads (featuring author Laura Quinn) and  Tale of Two Oysters. Helping the local community is part of the reason I do this. All of these are things my family enjoys and appreciates. e-Beach Wagon is quite simply an electric motorized beach cart capable of traveling over uneven terrain and carrying over 300 lbs of gear. My hesitation…

    The Amazing Craft Beers of Cape May

    Once again, I have asked my amazing husband to do a guest post on a topic that is near and dear to his heart…beer! It’s a topic that he knows in depth and thoroughly enjoys! This little tour of Cape May craft beers in and around Cape May is sure to make you want to grab a cold one! When I think of things that just go together, a few examples are obvious: peanut butter and jelly, Adam and Eve, fish and chips, beach and beer, and my favorite local Cape May oysters and beer! Almost nothing beats a cold beer on a hot Summer’s day. Luckily for me, there…

    Fun Food in Cape May – Savory

    Fun Food in Cape May—I’m sure that means different things to different people. So let me begin by saying that this is my take on it (yours may be very different). Personally, one of the things I love about Cape May is the variety of food and restaurants. It really does run the gamut. We love to eat at fine dining places all over Cape May, but so many times when we think of that quintessential meal—it’s fun food! Breaking this out into categories was tough, so it’s a bit of a mind dump of savory offerings. I plan to follow up with a sweet one soon!  I covered bakeries…

    Planning a Pub Crawl in Cape May

    One subject that I have been asked about many times is planning a pub crawl in Cape May. I personally think Cape May is an ideal location for a pub crawl for two very important reasons. 1. There are so many great bars in Cape May with very different vibes and character. 2. Cape May is incredibly walkable. That being said, planning is absolutely essential. My family likes to poke fun at me about my pre-crawl planning, but I believe is it key to a successful experience. My definition of a successful pub crawl is one where you don’t underestimate your ability to cover ground, have fun at each stop…

    Birding in Cape May

    I must be honest; this is a post I have started and stopped a few times. Birding in Cape May is a HUGE deal! I touched upon it in my Fall is Fun in Cape May post. However, I found covering it in a meaningful way daunting. So, I called in reinforcements and asked my friend Claire (an avid Cape May birder) to lend me a hand. She has a level of knowledge and expertise that is required to hit all the right points. When to Visit Cape May is known as one of the ultimate destinations for birding in North America. National Geographic considers Cape May to be one…

    Cape May Beach Reads

    I love grabbing a great book and heading to the beach to read with the ocean breezes blowing. What better to take then Cape May beach reads. I mean books that are written about or set in Cape May. There’re actually several—some have been around for a while, and one is brand new. There are pieces of fiction, historical books and even quite a few ghost stories. Fiction The most recent work of fiction set in Cape May, is “Thicker Than Water” by my friend Laura Quinn. It is the first in a series of three. This historically accurate book begins in 1916 during World War I and tells the…
