This Earth Day, Celebrate Nature at one of these great places.
Cape May Point State Park:
Home to the famous Cape May Lighthouse and some of the greatest birding locations, Cape May Point State Park is a cannot miss location. Visitors are welcome to explore the nature trails surrounding the park as well as the World War II Bunker located on the beach in front of Lighthouse. If you are looking to make a day out of it, picnic tables and shelters offer a secluded dining experience – just don’t forget the food! After you are done exploring the park, drive down to the end of Sunset Boulevard and view one of the Delaware Bay’s magnificent sunsets and view the concrete ship, S.S. Atlantus, before it slips under water forever.
