Walk around Cape May

Cape May Promenade

Cape May truly became the nation's oldest seaside resort when the Cape May boardwalk was built. The first of its kind in New Jersey, this wooden structure was eventually done in by decades of coastal storms and a nor'easter that also damaged several town properties in 1962. Fortunately, a silver lining was made from the havoc when the boardwalk was replaced by a seawall, topped with a concrete walkway.

This is the Cape May promenade, a gateway to miles of beach that's also well worth a visit in itself! Start just outside the Inns at the intersection of Jefferson & Beach Ave, then head left towards Howard St. to find Pete Smith's Surf Shop, the Original Fudge Kitchen and many other classic boardwalk attractions. Two arcades are also located in this area, featuring family-friendly games and activities like skee ball!

The promenade measures about two miles from end to end. There are no intersections or crosswalks along the way, which makes it a natural choice for a session of wildlife watching or jogging. Get up early to enjoy a walk as the sun rises over the ocean, or go for a ride along the path--bikes are permitted until 10am each morning.

No matter what brings you to the promenade, you're sure to find a special dash of Cape May's history and spirit. Be sure to stop by while staying with Stockton Inns!
