Fun Activities to Do at the Shore


Are you spending time down the shore but not sure how to fill your free time? Even though some places are still closed, businesses continue to re-open each week! Here a few things you can do in Cape May County to have fun and get out of the house

Take a Walk on the Beach
Beaches are officially open for the summer season! Take a walk on one of the Cape May County beaches and look for shells, watch the surfers catch some waves, or just enjoy the sounds of the waves. Soak up some Vitamin D while getting in some exercise and you’re sure to feel rejuvenated!

Taste Test on the Boardwalk
Restaurants and shops are now open on the Wildwood and Ocean City boardwalks so bring your family, hit the boards, and try out all the Boardwalk foods they have to offer! Make it fun by taste-testing everything from cheesy pizza to sweet fresh lemonade to determine the best of the boardwalk!

Order Takeout from your Favorite Restaurant
While many people are ramping up their cooking skills during quarantine, planning out meals every night can get exhausting. Take a break from the norm and order takeout from one of the many restaurants open in Cape May County. Take it home to enjoy with your family or bring it to the beach for a meal with a view. Bon appétit!

Create Your Own Happy Hour with Cocktails To-Go
We may not be able to enjoy happy hours with waterfront views and appetizer specials, but that doesn’t mean you can’t host your own happy hour at home! All you need is a to-go cocktail from one of the many open restaurants in Cape May County. Kick up your feet, sip on a delicious drink, and relax for the perfect at-home happy hour.

Take in the Views at Sunset Beach
End your day at the beach with a beautiful sunset at Sunset Beach at Cape May Point. Bring your family to enjoy the vibrant colors of the sky over the concrete ship. Head to the Point before sunset to look for Cape May diamonds along the beach and collect treasures to take home with you.
