We walked the boardwalk and trail through the marshes, woods, and dunes of the state park. Saw many shore birds. The various trees were identified. If you wish, you can also climb to the top of the Cape May lighthouse.

We always stop at the museum to see the displays and read about the shells and creatures from the beach. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly.
