When in Cape May during the summer, it make sense to go on the Historic Cold Spring Village website, and choose a special event weekend--this way you can be assured to see not only the historic houses on the site, but also antiques or crafts, etc. We particularly like going in to the buildings that are manned by costumed interpreters that create goods for a general store on the property. The printmaker is always a favorite (ask for a sample to use as a bookmark), and the last time we were there, a very knowledgeable young lady was making blank journals/books, complete with marbleized end papers that were quite spectacular. There is an ice cream shop in the village that is always well stocked, along with a bakery complete with snickerdoodles. Every year the "restaurant" on premises changes, so call before you go to see what is available.
