What’s Happening in July and August in Cape May in 2018

July and August are the height of summer fun in Cape May and this historic seaside resort town has something for everyone to enjoy. Whether you are 8 or 88, summer fun can be found right around the corner!

If you are wondering what is happening in July or August in town, we’ve put together a quick round up of some of the best things to try! Staying at Antoinette’s Apartments & Suites offers you a central location to the fun as we are just blocks from the beach, downtown and a short bike or car ride from many of the restaurants, wineries, breweries, and destinations in the town and county.

If you are looking for things to do with the kids in Cape May, we’ve got you covered with a great round up of our beach and seaside favorites here on our blog. Those visiting to tour the wineries and their events can find more details about the many vineyards here. Craft brewery fans have a lot to look forward to in the area too! Our round up of those details can be found here. Are you on a romantic trip this summer? We’ve got great recommendations on where to find a romantic dinner. Outdoors fans can find everything from birding to hiking to do in this post. Finally, what’s a trip to Cape May without a wander to the beach! Beach bests are found here
