Visited on a beautiful December "summer-like" day and enjoyed the stroll through the well maintained paths. Easy viewing of the water fowl and with access to the beach. Nice to see that this area was returned to a natural setting for us to enjoy,

Hi Mom-Mom23 The Meadows I reviewed is a great bird sanctuary in Cape May. You are looking at a hotel, I think. Sorry. But if in Cape May, definitely go to this sanctuary. Cheers TommyBoy94
