The Jersey Cape is where recreational, educational and economical opportunities abound. Whether it’s the free beaches in The Wildwoods, an exploration of the county’s bayside or a visit to the Cape May County Park Zoo, visitors to the Jersey Cape don’t need to spend a lot of money to have a whole lot of fun. What’s more, children have the opportunity to find their own diamonds – of the Cape May variety.
“Cape May County is truly the best vacation spot for any family – whether they’re on a budget or not – because we’re easily accessible from so many places on the East Coast, we have high-quality accommodations and businesses, the number of special events and attractions we have is enormous and of course, because we are the seashore,” said Diane Wieland, director of tourism for Cape May County.
While it’s true that most visitors to the Jersey Cape pick the area for its natural beauty, situated on New Jersey’s peninsula at the south, there’s much more to Cape May County than lazy days on the beach. Some vacationers prefer to spend their entire visit on the beach by day and in the area’s fine restaurants and nightclubs by night. There are many, however, who come away from a vacation on the Jersey Cape with more than they bargained for. From Cape May Point to Ocean City, the Jersey Cape is filled with free, or nearly free, activities and attractions to satisfy any interest and any budget..
Filled with hundreds of animals from all over the world, the zoo is surrounded by a park, which has picnic areas, a playground, trails and biking paths. For a nominal fee, the littlest ones can even ride on a train or a carousel as part of the Zoo’s newest attractions. Visitors can spend an entire day at the county’s zoo, which is free and open everyday from 10 a.m. until 4:45 p.m. and Wednesday night until 7:45 p.m.
Cape May is THE location for observing birds in North America, favored by such celebrated naturalists as John Audubon, Tory Peterson and others. More than 400 different species have been seen on the peninsula during the fall migration and the area is known for spectacular flights of peregrines, merlins, ospreys, and sharp-shinned hawks. Cape May Point is one the premier places with marked, easy-to-follow trails to help even the novice birder spot ducks, swans, osprey, and other shore birds and wildlife along the way.
The Wetlands Institute, at the entrance to Stone Harbor, is an educational – but fun – treasure that entire families can enjoy. The Institute, which admits children free with paying adults, is dedicated to education and preservation of the Jersey Cape’s environment. World-renown researchers make the Wetlands Institute their home in the summer. Families can view exhibits, take ecological tours or participate in a long list of special events offered at the Wetlands Institute.
Free movies under the stars are part of the summer event line-up in Sea Isle City. Bring your favorite blanket or beach chair to JFK Blvd. & Pleasure Avenue at Dusk and enjoy the latest screen favorites. If one free movie per week isn’t enough, take Ocean Drive to the historic landmark City of Cape May where the family can relax with a pail full of popcorn instead of sand and watch movies under the stars at the beach at Stockton Street every Thursday in July and August.
At the southern tip of the Cape is Sunset Beach, where the area’s only stone-bearing beach is located. The stones at Sunset Beach have been polished during their travels that took them hundreds of years until they met their resting place on Sunset Beach. There are all sizes, colors and varieties, but the most famous are the beautiful quartz stones, better known as Cape May Diamonds. Once professionally cleaned and polished, Cape May Diamonds look like genuine diamonds and children and adults alike have enjoyed collecting them for generations.
A free day enjoying the sun, sand, and ocean can be found at the largest beach on the east coast in Wildwood. Whether it’s swimming, surfing, boogie boarding, or fishing, there is plenty of room for everyone. Strathmere also offers free admission to its big beaches and is located between Ocean City and Sea Isle City. It’s a quiet hamlet on a very slender slice of the barrier island offering visitors a glimpse of what life was like at the shore before summer visitors arrived by the thousands.
Surprisingly, the Atlantic Ocean does not hold exclusive claim to beaches in South Jersey. Beautiful, less traveled beaches also abound on the bay side of the peninsula, cooled by the waters of the Delaware Bay. Unlike the ocean beaches, the bay side beaches are primarily unprotected, so swimming should be done so with caution. These bay side beaches, which stretch from Sunset Beach into Lower Township, are perhaps the most breathtaking because they are used primarily for fishing and walking, rather than swimming and sunbathing. Untouched by beach-cleaning vehicles and much less traveled by visitors, these beaches are less restrictive and provide great spots for wind surfing, jet skiing or skipping along in a colorful Hobie Cat.
While there is a charge for rides on boardwalk amusement piers and water parks, the Cape’s boardwalks in Ocean City and The Wildwoods offer amusements at costs lower than comparable facilities. Strolling the “boards” in Ocean City and the Wildwoods to absorb the sights and sounds of the seashore at its best is free, and on family nights, the entertainment is free too! Free entertainment in the Wildwoods happens every Wednesday from 7 to 9 p.m. at Cedar Avenue. Every Thursday through Labor Day, visitors can enjoy free entertainment, including live bands, magicians, karaoke, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. in Ocean City. The Wildwoods summer Fireworks extravaganza is a real crowd pleaser and takes place every Friday night at 10:30 a.m. at Pine Avenue and the Boardwalk.
The Jersey Cape invites the littlest to the biggest ones in the family to rock around the clock from Monday through Saturday all summer long in free concerts and dance parties hosted by Sea Isle City and Avalon.
Sea Isle City hosts two free family fun events billed as “Summer Concerts Under the Stars” on Monday and Wednesday nights from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. at the Promenade and JFK Boulevard. On Thursday nights all summer long, everyone in the family can shake their groove thing at the Family Night Dance Parties from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. at the Promenade and JFK Boulevard.
On Friday and Saturday in the summer, the Borough of Avalon shows visitors why it is cooler by a mile as the town invites visitors to get sand in their dance shoes and enjoy a free concert at 30th Street on the Beach from Noon to 3 p.m.
Whether it is on the Beach or Boardwalk or in a special venue like the Ocean City Music Pier or the Wildwoods Convention Center, everyone in the family can find fun to be extremely affordable or free simply by checking the special events calendar at
Nearly every seashore town at the Jersey Cape has a historical society or historical museum that vacationers may visit to learn a little more about the local history. The Cape May County Historical Museum, along Route 9 in Cape May Court House, has no admission fee and has a large collection of documents and artifacts that trace the county’s history to before the Revolutionary War.
Historic Cold Spring Village in Lower Township, just north of Cape May, offers visitors a glimpse of a 19th-century village with working trades and craftspeople. There is a small admission fee to the village, but it’s well worth the cost to have children sit in a class at a one-room schoolhouse; watch a blacksmith create shoes for one of the village’s horses or pet the farm animals on the village grounds.
The historic town of Greenwich, located in Cumberland County, looks much the same as it did 300 years ago when sailing ships crowded the Cohansey River and the British flag fluttered in the breeze. A group of defiant patriots even staged their own protest in Greenwich burning a consignment of the King¹s tea destined for Philadelphia. There is a monument to the Greenwich tea party, a testament to the bravery of those early colonists, in the old marketplace on Ye Greate Street, a street unchanged from 1684 when it was first laid out.
Well-known for its bed and breakfast inns and large quantity of historic architecture, the City of Cape May is one of the few municipalities that, as a whole, is considered a national historic landmark. Visitors are free to roam the streets of Cape May on their own to gaze at the exquisite buildings, but the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts, housed in the Physick Estate near the entrance to the city, has a variety of walking and trolley tours for a nominal price.
Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon no longer play Beach Blanket Bingo but the motels with the pink and aqua color schemes, colorful neon signs and swaying plastic palm trees are still here, with memories of a '57 Chevy, saddle shoes and golden age of endless summers in the Wildwoods. More than 200 Doo Wop style-buildings are clustered in the Wildwoods, a resort town famous for its boardwalk and beaches. Motels with names like the Starlux recall the Space Age and architectural features that seem to defy gravity are winning national recognition for the 1950s, a time like no other in America's history.
Enjoy a trip to the city of Bridgeton, around since the American Revolution, full of Victorian architecture. Settled in 1686, experience the largest Historic District in the state of New Jersey. The National Register Historic District includes over 2,000 historic structures comprising nearly one third of the City's housing stock.
The Jersey Cape is still one of the best values for family vacationing as you don’t need a lot of money to have a whole lot of fun.

Movie Theaters Near Cape May NJ

Where to go to the Movies in Cape May County

Visit the Frank Theater Rio Grand NJ for current films. Or take a ride from Cape May NJ to Stone Harbor to enjoy the newly renovated Harbor Square Theater. You can enjoy a glass of wine or visit the burger bar at the Harbor Square Theater.
Frank Theaters – Rio Stadium 12 Longtime movie theater chain screening current films & offering standard concessions. View the current movie listing here
Located in: Rio Mall
Address3801 U.S. 9 #1, Rio Grande, NJ 08242

Harbor Square Theatre is South Jersey’s premier movie theatre experience

STONE HARBOR — After months of renovation, Harbor Square Theatre opened its doors Friday, July 22 for the first time since Clinton Bunting and his partners acquired the property in January.
Ever dream of enjoying a full meal plus drinks at the movie theater? Introducing Harbor Burger Bar and its accompanying concession stand. Located within the same building as Harbor Square Theatre, it’s the best place to consume some food while simultaneously consuming a film.
What to expect
Enjoy a glass of wine with your movie at Harbor Burger Bar, or a filling meal. In addition to the full-scale restaurant that occupies the front of the building — complete with signage reminiscent of a vintage marquee — there’s a concession area at the theater with restaurant offerings right next to the candy and popcorn.
The new guy in town, Harbor Burger Bar is poised to become a mainstay, offering the complete “dinner and a movie” package. Customers can bring their food and drinks into the movie itself, but it’s worth hanging out at the bar or restaurant for a while, either before or after a show, or even if you’re not going to a show at all.

Food and drink
There’s an impressive tap list at Harbor Burger Bar — think Cape May IPA, Jack-O Traveler Pumpkin Ale, Goose Island IPA and seasonal Sam Adams — ranging from $5.50 to $7, with additional options available at the concession area for a 16- or 24-ounce draft (for $7 and $10).
The specialty cocktails, however, are worth indulging in, if only for their Hollywood-inspired names. From the Shirley Temple Black (Goslings Black Seal rum and Goslings ginger beer, topped with Maraschino liqueur for $10) and the Silver Screen Margarita (Patron Silver, Cointreau and fresh orange and lime juice with a touch of sour for $13), to the Saturday at the Movies Martini (Skyy cherry vodka, Triple Sec, fresh lemon and cranberry juice for $10), the cocktails offer a fun way to pay homage to classic Hollywood.
And while we love our movie theater popcorn, there’s no reason to limit yourself to the ordinary when you’re hitting the movies at Harbor Square Theatre. Check out the buffalo chicken eggrolls, fried pickles or mozzarella wedges for some small bites, or go for a burger. It’s not called a burger bar for nothing, offering at least eight options from the Bleu-Rugula to the Cali burger.
Coming up
On Thursday, Sept. 8, the following movies are being screened: “Sully,” “Don’t Breathe,” “War Dogs,” “Suicide Squad,” “Bad Moms,” “The Secret Life of Pets,” and “Finding Dory,” with new movies coming over the weekend.
Harbor Burger Bar is also looking forward to tapping into all areas of the performing arts in the future, from stand up comedy to film festivals. Stay tuned!

Cape May Bird's Eye Aerial View from Above with Unique Drone Footage

Take a Bird's Eye View of Cape May with this Unique Perspective Take a flight over Congress Hall in Cape May and view the Beaches from a Seagulls view with this unique aerial drone footage from above.

  Congress Hall is a historic hotel in Cape May, Cape May County, New Jersey, United States, occupying a city block bordered on the south by Beach Avenue and on the east by Washington Street Mall. It is a

contributing building in the Cape May National Historic District.[1] Congress Hall was first constructed in 1816 as a wooden boarding house for guests to the new seaside resort of Cape May; and the proprietor, Thomas H. Hughes, called it "The Big House." Locals, thinking it too big to be successful, called it "Tommy's Folly."[2] In 1828, when Hughes was elected to the House of Representatives, he changed the name of the hotel to Congress Hall. It burned to the ground in Cape May's Great Fire of 1878, but within a year, its owners had rebuilt the hotel in brick Cap May NJ Press Release

Cape May, NJ (January 18, 2017) – The 4th Spring Edition of the Exit Zero Jazz Festival is set to kick off in Cape May, NJ, April 21-23, 2017. Festival Producer Michael Kline announces the headliners and first round of club artists for the 2017 Spring Festival. Friday, April 21st, on the MusicConnects Stage in Schmidtchen Theater, Exit Zero Jazz presents The Ultimate Tribute to Ray Charles featuring legendary funk saxophonist Maceo Parker with the Ray Charles Orchestra and the Raelettes. The Ultimate Tribute to Ray Charles premiered at the Hollywood Bowl in the summer of 2016, followed by a performance at the Monterey Jazz Festival. The performance at the Exit Zero Jazz Festival is the premier of the project on the east coast. Kline remarks about the coup of presenting this spectacular program, “We are thrilled to present Maceo Parker with the Ray Charles Orchestra on the opening night of Exit Zero Jazz. This continues our tradition of hosting world-class artists on the Festival stages. Our audiences recognize and have a deep appreciation for this music and we are thrilled for Maceo and the Orchestra to celebrate the music of American icon, Ray Charles.”
Headlining the Schmidtchen Theater MusicConnects Stage on Saturday, April 22nd, is the Grammy-winning Robert Glasper Experiment. The most prominent artist blurring the musical lines between acoustic jazz, hip-hop, and contemporary R&B, pianist Robert Glasper became a crossover star with his electro-acoustic Experiment band following the game-changing 2012 release Black Radio, winning the GRAMMY for Best R&B Album. Since then, Glasper’s profile has exploded, with the pianist composing the soundtrack for director/star Don Cheadle’s Miles Davis biopic Miles Ahead and performing at the White House with rapper Common.
The Exit Zero Jazz Festival is a multi-venue festival with three full days of performances staged in the 1,177 seat Schmidtchen Theater, the 800 seat Cape May Convention Hall and in the clubs of Cape May. A wide array of jazz and other genres of music are presented throughout the weekend. Featured artists performing on the Cape May Convention Hall / It’s a Breeze Stage include NeTTWork Trio with Charnette Moffett/Stanley Jordan/Jeff “Tain” Watts, NEA Jazz Master Kenny Barron, Christian Scott Atunde Adjuah, and 2017 MusicConnects Artist in Residence Michael Pedicin. The New Orleans Swamp Donkeys, PhillyBloco, Brian Betz/Denis DiBlasio Quartet, the Freddie Hendrix 4tet and gypsy jazz violinist Daisy Castro will perform on the Cape May Brewing Company Hops Pass Club Series, with more club artists to be announced February 1.
Exit Zero Jazz Festival is produced by Spy Boy Productions. Helmed by Michael Kline, who also produces the Rootstock Summer Concert Series at Hawk Haven Winery and the Cape May Convention Hall Summer Series, Kline celebrated many summers in Cape May and returned in 2005 from New Orleans. He shares his thoughts about presenting the Festival in Cape May: “We want to offer a world-class cultural experience in Cape May that rivals those of other iconic festivals and trumpets the vibrant, thriving community in Cape May beyond the incredible beaches and Victorian architecture. Through music, we celebrate the spirit and creative energy in Cape May. It’s always a great party, and we’re thrilled that people keep coming back for more.”
Named for the exit to Cape May off the Garden State Parkway, the festival attracts a loyal, diverse audience of thousands from the major metropolitan regions surrounding Cape May including New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., all within a four or five- hour drive of Cape May. The Festival features Grammy Award-winners, living legends, NEA Jazz Masters, emerging jazz stars, international musicians and home-grown talent too. The Festival is supported through the efforts of Festival Presenters: Motéma Music, Exit Zero Magazine and Chris Clemans Sotheby’s International Realty, and Congress Hall, the Official Hotel of the Exit Zero Jazz Festival, The Whale’s Tale, It’s a Breeze, Hawk Haven Winery and Vineyard, Cape May Brewing Company+ many other Cape May & Cape May County businesses.
