Like Little Nell's Christmas stocking, the holidays in Cape May County are filled with tours, shows and fun-filled events
From Thanksgiving to Christmas, the Jersey Cape is filled with holiday events, shopping and festive activities. We invite you to visit for a unique holiday experience.
The holiday season kicks off with many of the local restaurants offering traditional and non-traditional Thanksgiving dinner packages. So why not start a new tradition of Thanksgiving at the shore! You'll find great dinner and overnight packages at the Reed's Resort in Stone Harbor, or a wonderful dinner spread at Union Park in Cape May. Many other Jersey Cape restaurants like Avalon Links are rolling out their best for Thanksgiving, visit our Where To Eat page for a list of delicious dining establishments.
Good old St. Nick pays a visit - as he has for nearly 50 years - Dec. 5th in the annual West Cape May Christmas Parade, perhaps the county's most popular holiday tradition. During the holidays, Cape May becomes a Christmas wonderland with beautifully decorated streets and unique gift shops for that special someone on Santa's list. Its parades, tours and events makes it a must do during the holidays. In fact, all the towns of the Jersey Cape roll out their best during the holidays with events and shopping in the quaint downtowns of Ocean City, Stone Harbor, The Wildwoods, Avalon and Sea Isle City.
There's nothing like going to see a theatrical show during the holidays and the Jersey Cape is full of them.
