Trip Report 25th Anniversary in Cape May

Jump to last reply

My DH and I stayed in Cape May for our 25th Wedding Anniversary between July 17-19, 2009. I really wish we could have stayed longer, as we had a wonderful time!

We stayed at the Sea Crest Inn, which is right across the street from the beach. Please see my review on TripAdvisor regarding the Sea Crest Inn. I highly recommended it for those traveling without little children!

Our room was not ready when we arrive at the Sea Crest, as we were early. We took a stroll to the Rusty Nail and enjoyed a fabulous Strawberry Daiquiri while we sat outside in their beautiful gardens.

From there walked to the kiosk outside the beach and bought our beach tags ($10 each for 3 days) and then took a leisurely walk on the beach. Although it isn't the white sandy beaches and crystal blue waters of the Caribbean or even Southern Florida, it was very nice for the Jersey Shore. Children were happily playing in the sand or boogie boarding. It is a nice family atmosphere.

Later that evening, we were recommended "Happy Hour" at Bloody Mary's restaurant. (www.bloodymarysbarandgrill.com ) It was a blast! Billy Jack is very talented! And it was great fun when he had the audience help out with the percussions. And the kitchen help would come out and sing. He even had the audience help sing "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" in honor of our 25th! It was fun. The food was very good and reasonably priced.

Saturday morning and afternoon was spent on the beach and walking to the Washington Street Mall. There, we enjoyed lunch sitting outside The Ugly Mug while being serenaded to by the Cape Shore Chorus of the Sweet Adeline's. Once again, the food was very good and very abundant! It was a good thing I had a refrigerator at the Sea Crest Inn!

Saturday evening/night was spent at Wildwood Crest, as it was the 21st Annual Christmas in July Boat Parade. That was very enjoyable and very family oriented. They did a very nice laser show, but I wish they had done the laser show on a larger sail of a boat. The laser's were cool to see from the street. It was fun. Afterwards, we had dinner at the Duffy's on the Lake. Another fine meal.

Sunday we enjoyed a few more early morning hours at the beach before we headed home.

My only regret is that we did not have more time to enjoy all that Cape May has to offer. We never got a chance to see any of the Victorian Homes or Nature Tours. Oh well, I guess I'll have to plan another vacation for next year!
