The fall season may be the best time to visit the Montreal Beach Resort in Cape May. The weather has cooled to perfect crisp temperatures and the crowds certainly have diminished from the summer. Our Cape May Hotel offers a nice relaxing experience that is a relief after a scorching and busy summer.
There is plenty to do at the shore in September and October while staying at our family-friendly resort hotel. Special Autumn Offers from the Montreal Beach Resort also provide a great opportunity to either explore new areas, or simply just visit your favorites.
The fall is the perfect opportunity to visit the local shops and restaurants in the area while enjoying your stay with us at the Montreal. Many shops have outside displays and the restaurants offer outdoor seating to enjoy the great weather and fall foliage. Golfing outings are even better with the cool breeze on your back rather than the hot sun beaming down. Nothing is more relaxing than watching the sun set while relaxing on the beach as the day winds to a close.
