Spring in Cape May is quite the sight, with flowers blooming, birds chirping, and many new businesses starting to sprout. Check out some of the new sights on the horizon and what we’re looking forward to seeing open this season!
Visitors will notice the outdoor dining option will continue from last summer into this summer, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. Cape May City Council worked to provide planter boxes over orange barriers at Carpenters Ln and Decatur St – which remains closed to thru traffic. The Garden Club of Cape May provided flowers and will maintain them throughout the year.
- La La Lobster: Opening in the old Sea View grille on the Boardwalk is La La Lobster, which will offer lobster rolls and bowls. The location is expected to open this summer. For more information, visit lalalobster.com.

- Across The Way: A staple store for Washington Street Mall Goers, Across The Way has moved into a bigger space, literally across the way from their old shop.

- Revolution Rail: At the end of 2020, the new Cape May “Revolution Rail Co.” opened on the train tracks behind the Welcome Center at 609 Lafayette St. Riders can take a 4 mile out-and-back trip along the railroad tracks and take in the sights alongside the Garrett Family Preserve. Railbikers enjoy a ride along the train tracks that do not see passenger traffic. For more information, visit revrail.com.
