Enjoy Family Activities in Cape May this Summer Presented by the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities (MAC)

Summertime in Cape May is a great time to enjoy fun tours, activities and events as a family! Don’t miss the family fun during the biggest event of the year at the Emlen Physick Estate: Cape May’s Craft Beer & Crab Festival on Saturday, Aug. 6. An all-day event on the grounds of the Physick Estate, 1048 Washington St., it includes food, fun, crafts and free family entertainment, including the Give & Take Jugglers, shown here. Children are always welcome on the estate! There are dozens of things to do all summer long in Cape May. Visit three historic sites — the 1879 Emlen Physick Estate, the 1859 Cape May Lighthouse and the 1942 World War II Lookout Tower (Fire Control Tower No. 23). Join in new events in 2016 at the estate: Kids Arts Parties and Breakfasts in Neverland. Explore history or nature; take a Children’s Trolley Ride or go Beachcombing at The Cove. Hop aboard the Cape May Whale Watcher on a boat tour Around Cape Island or put your heads together as a family on the Cape May Family Treasure Hunt or the new Physick Estate Scavenger Hunt. There’s so much more! You can even bring a picnic lunch and spread out on the grass or use the estate’s picnic tables for free during the day. Come play this summer in Cape May, America’s first seaside resort.
