We may be partial, but we think September and October are perhaps the best months in which to visit Cape May. In September Cape May 2021, the crowds are fewer (and smaller), the weather is mild, the air is crisp, and there are a number of fun seasonal events to attend. This time of year, you really can enjoy ALL Cape May has to offer.
Fall Sidewalk Sale on Washington Street Mall | September 16-19
Cape May’s fall sidewalk sales are well known for offering great deals on clothing artesian crafts, collectibles, and more. They’re the perfect event at which to holiday shop, featuring a wide range of gifts for just about everyone in your life. Plus, when you shop at this year’s Cape May Fall Sidewalk Sale, you’re supporting local shop and business owners (BONUS!).

The Room of the Month
The Room of the Month is Westminster. Westminster is a large premium room on the 2nd floor of Prince Albert Hall. It features a king-sized bed, sofa, two comfy chairs, and a private bath with a large step-in shower. The room offers lots of storage space and is decorated in traditional Victorian style with bright and cheery period charm.
The Restaurant of the Month
The Restaurant of the Month is Exit Zero. Exit Zero is a fabulous Cape May restaurant with two locations. Each offers an eclectic menu, live entertainment, and an enjoyable able atmosphere in which to kick back and relax. We’re especially fond of their Curry Fries which are seasoned with just the perfect amount of spice.
