Trolley Tours

Cape May Activities

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the great number of things there are to see in Cape May, one way to find a starting place and become more familiar with the town’s layout is to take a trip on one of the MAC’s jolly red and green trolleys! More than a dozen different Cape May trolley tours are offered by the MAC (Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities); we will only be discussing a few of the options here.

As the nation’s oldest seaside resort, Cape May has a lot of history—in fact, the whole city has been designated a National Historic Landmark!—and plenty of sites and sights to see on the trolley’s Historic District Tour.

A Midnight Trolley Ride might make a nice compliment to the Historical Tour. These take place in the evenings and cruise through Cape May’s gas lit streets. Old-time courtyard and romance stories are included!

The Ghosts of the Lighthouse and Ride with the Ghost Writer Cape May trolley tours are another pair of related rides that could be done during the same visit! The former travels a path to Cape May’s iconic lighthouse and features narration by Craig McManus, a psychic medium. Once there, you can climb to the top or stay below! Ride with the Ghost Writer also features McManus hosting a trip through the Historic District.

These and other great options can easily be found with MAC near our Cape May bed and breakfast!

Innkeeper Tip: Try the “Combination Trolley Tour” which combines the Emlen Physick Estate & the historic district trolley tour.
