    Nice pleasant little nature center. It's free and good for some quick and educational activities for your kids when you need a break from the main beach. They have a nice lookout post that allows you to see the whole conservatory. They even provide binoculars.

    A wonderful place to learn more about the environment and history of the Cape May area. Their mission is to provide environmental education using hands-on and interactive activities for all ages. Admission is free to the center. They keep a calendar of events with a wide range of topics.

Where to stay in Cape May

Choosing where to stay on Cape May remains simple because most accommodations lie steps from Beach Avenue (which, as its name suggests, runs along the cape's stretch of sand). Even choosing your style of accommodation is uncomplicated--inns and bed and breakfasts situated inside Victorian houses encompass nearly the entire range of choices. You can opt for a cottage if you prefer self-service. Budget-wise you'll find the most options in the mid-range and higher end, but a few value-driven choices exist too. Book early if you plan to visit in summer.
