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.

Came here for a site visit for the beach replenishment. I ignored my business portion and just took in the beauty and splendour. Soon it will be restored to its former glory but for the time being just come here and breath.

Visited in September of 2016. Didn't have enough time to go into the lighthouse for a tour but it was nice from the outside. They have a very small gift shop next to the lighthouse. Plenty of free parking next to the beach. Nice place...More
