We checked out the Cape May lighthouse on our way back from a whale watching trip. We did not see any whales,but on the way home we visited this lighthouse. Very cool. Lots of history to explore and climbing to the top, to scope out the views, was amazing!!!! Would highly recommend a visit for both the young and young at heart...

My dad and I devoted 199 steps to climb up and down the lighthouse, and it's such an enchanting place! We even feel the breeze out and up there. Go there and enjoy the excercise! Plus, there were even has lots of pics and exhibit about it's long-time history.

Wait was long, but the service and food were exceptional. Waterfront restaurant with a nautical theme, it was nice to see the boats go by while eating.

Great way to spend a morning, the views are spectacular and the little museum was interesting as well. Don't forget to get a ticket for the World War II lookout tower down the road to learn some real interesting history.

It was hot day, so we sweat a lot to the top. After some exercise, we got great view and nice breeze on the top. Free Museum by the lighthouse was small, but had some interesting creatures and information. You can not swim, but the beach around the lighthouse was not crowded and beautiful. If you look for quiet beach in Cape May, this is the place!
