Top Attractions

Emlen Physick Estate This beautifully restored Victorian house is one of the main tourist attractions in Cape May. To enter the museum is to step back in time to an era of heavy Victoriana, with furnishings that speak of the Physick family's wealth and life style. Cape May residents and visitors should be eternally grateful to Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts (MAC) for stepping in and preventing developers from tearing down the house in 1970, and for restoring this lovely old house.

Cape May Carriage Co Breathe in the atmosphere of another time when the pace was more leisurely as you take a ride along the historic streets of Cape May, lined with beautiful old Victorian buildings, in an old-fashioned horse-drawn carriage.

Historic Cold Spring Village Visit this 19th Century Open-Air Living History Museum, set on a 22 acre wooded site with 25 historic buildings that have been beautifully restored. Costumed guides bring to life the crafts and lifestyle of the Age of Homespun.
