Christmas in Cape May NJ is in full swing.

This weekend is the Cape May Candlelight House Tour. It’s a favorite Cape May tradition so we’re excited to offer a special package (see below) that coincides with the last weekend of this special holiday tradition.


What is the Cape May Candlelight House Tour?

The Cape May Candlelight House Tour is a special holiday tradition that closes today, December 15. So, this is your last opportunity to tour Cape May’s historic district and surrounding areas during the 2018 holiday season!

The Candlelight House Tour is presented by the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities (MAC). Each year, since 1974, Cape May Victorian homes, inns, churches and hotels open their doors to welcome visitors to share the warms of the holiday season. Tours are self-guided and selling quickly.

On the tour you’ll enjoy Christmas carols by candlelight, strolling musicians, and beautiful holiday decorations. Plus, hospitality centers will be welcoming guests with warm beverages and holiday treat during your travels. Too cold to walk? Free heated shuttles offer limited stops along some routes.
