Your guide to September in Cape May.
Cape May is well-known for its beautiful high season, June through August, but September is also a great time to visit the Shore. This time of year, the weather is cooler and the streets are quieter. It’s a great time to explore new areas, visit Cape May’s unique shops and restaurants, and enjoy local attractions.
Here’s what to do this September in Cape May.
