Cape May Fall Things to Do..Halloween Happenings in Town-Top 10 Things to Do

Whether you want to seek out a real ghost, or just get scared by some man-made spooks, Cape May in New Jersey is a great place to go. Many of the buildings there date back several centuries, giving them plenty of time to accumulate a spirit or two. Best of all, at least two of the haunted spots are hotels, so you can stay overnight and try to capture some ghostly activity in the dark.

Elaine's Haunted Mansion Restaurant

If you're interested in a manufactured spooky experience, Elaine's Haunted Mansion Restaurant ( affords a whimsical dining experience replete with a ghostly host. The dining room  is designed so that picture frames move and other mysterious things take place during your dinner. A dinner theater option is also offered, which includes a full course dinner and a play. If you want to get outside, take advantage of the venue's one-hour haunted walking tour.

Southern Mansion

The Southern Mansion (, an operating bed-and-breakfast as of 2012, was once the private residence of an industrialist named George Allen and some of his family members.

Ester's perfume and laughter are also reported in the mansion, as well as unexplained cold spots.

Queen's Hotel

Another location in Cape May with reports of real haunting is the Queen's Hotel (no website; 601 Columbia Avenue, Cape May, NJ 08204; 609-884-1613).

Other reports on the property include the smell of perfume through the halls and sudden drops in temperature.


The Winterwood ( Christmas gift shop located in Cape May is in a building that once served as a bank and city hall.
