Never been to Cape May before. Were heading to the lighthouse when we saw a lot of cars in a lot. FIgured it was the place to be, and it was. Lots of trails, and beach access. The sunset views of the lighthouse were phenomenal.

This was a wonderful nature hike. Parking is easy and the paths are flat and well paved with hard gravel. (A wheelchair could easily be used here.) LOTS of birds and flowers.

This is a lovely walk amid the marshes. Many varied birds frequent the area. Just be aware it is hot...no shade so be prepared. Also lovely in fall during the migration!

A great place to see all kinds of birds, and a wonderful walk to the beach. Be sure to stop here on the way down Sunset Boulevard to the Lighthouse.

Hi Mom-Mom23 The Meadows I reviewed is a great bird sanctuary in Cape May. You are looking at a hotel, I think. Sorry. But if in Cape May, definitely go to this sanctuary. Cheers TommyBoy94
