Each ride lasts for 1/2 hour.

We took a very nice carriage ride around the historic district one afternoon and loved it. The driver was very knowledgable about the history and was glad to share as we rode around gazing at the beautiful old Victorian home. The carriage was very comfotable and the horse was very clean and easy going, smooth ride. Our tour personal cost $50.00 and seats up to 4 people and a larger carriage that seats up to 8 and they let any one on that one, it not personal and that one is $10.00 per person and $4.00 kids 2-11.
The Cape May Arcade is conveniently located right on the boardwalk, so it's not hard to find. If the kids are a little weary of peering at Victorian homes and somewhat tired out from a day in the sand or water, take them to the arcade.
Video games, skee ball and other activities will be waiting for them. They can play to their little hearts content!
Don't forget Cape May also has Mini-golf, a trolley ride, carriage rides, cruises or a spin on a surrey for family fun, too.
