Cape May Holiday Happenings 2021

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from The Queen Victoria! To those of you who are booked with us this holiday season, we can’t wait to welcome you. To our friends we won’t see, we wish you a very merry Christmas and happy New Year! 


Christmas Shopping at The Queen Victoria 

Looking for the perfect holiday gift for friends and family? Our top pick? A The Queen Victoria gift certificate! We’ve said it before, we think The Queen Victoria gift certificates are great holiday presents because the fun doesn’t stop once they’re opened. In fact, it’s just beginning! If gift certificates aren’t right for you, our gift shop is packed with great items for just about everyone on your list.  


We’ve already written about the many Cape May holiday happenings this year. The season is certainly in full swing and packed with special Christmas tours, exhibits, and appearances from Santa. But we’d like to take a moment to again highlight a very special happening scheduled each Saturday before Christmas: The Christmas Candlelight House Tour. 


Christmas Candlelight House Tours | December 4th, 11th, and 18th 

Cape May Christmas Candlelight House Tours are a beloved annual tradition since 1973. Tours take place each Saturday in December leading up to Christmas. On every tour explore Cape May homes, bed & breakfast inns, churches, and hotels beautifully decorated for the holiday season. Tours are self-guided and a local trolley shuttle travels on a planned route with limited stops. We recommend walking to get the most out of the experience. Here are some photos from years past. 



Customer Appreciations Days | Washington Street Mall December 9th & 10th 

Formerly known as Cape May Hospitality Nights, get your Christmas shopping done during this festive seasonal event, complete with special discounts and tokens of appreciation for shoppers! This really is a fun event full of seasonal cheer. A Victorian Santa Claus will make a special appearance, plus enjoy holiday music and caroling as well.  


Room of the Month | Regent’s Park 

The Room of the Month is Regent’s Park. Regent’s Park features a lovely gas fireplace (log and brick finish), cozy sitting room, and a queen bed; it’s very private with a bathroom that offers his and her sinks and a large walk-in shower. We think the décor is especially lovely for this time of year, with red and green upholstery, drapes, and wall-to-wall carpet. Make your stay extra special this December, request a fresh bouquet, chocolate cover strawberries, or an artisanal cheese tray upon arrival. 


Restaurant of the Month | Sapore Italiano 

Sapore Italiano is absolutely our favorite Italian restaurant in Cape May. It’s located about a 1/2 mile from The Queen Victoria, on the border of West Cape May and everything is wonderful – we can’t speak of it highly enough. The menu is huge, the portions generous, and the prices are reasonable.  For a special touch, they always serve a complimentary anti-pasta platter before dinner. We recommend the Calamari Fritti, which melts in your mouth. BYOB. 


We can’t wait to welcome you this Christmas season in Cape May. Stay tuned for more updates and information on Cape May seasonal events, The Queen Victoria gift items, and more.
