    Cape May is an expensive town...

    by richiecdisc Written Sep 11, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cape May is an expensive town and there are many traps. Many choose to stay in neighboring towns like Wildwood and day trip in to cut down their costs. One thing that is free is walking around and enjoying the lovely old homes like this back street wonder.

    Cape May's Washington Street Mall

    by windoweb Written Jul 20, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Washington Street Mall is situated one block from the ocean in the heart of the Cape May historical district.

    Cape May closed Washington Street to traffic between Ocean and Perry Streets, filled in the street, placed park benches everywhere, and planted the newly created walking mall with trees, shrubbery, and flowers in 1970-71.

  • Beach tags not all bad

    by uhslax32 Written Jul 28, 2006

    People get upset about the beach tags, but the money you pay is what keeps the beaches so beautiful. These beaches are CLEAN, which makes your stay much more enjoyable. Also, there is the option of paying for a tag for one day($4), 4 days($9), one week($13), or the whole season($25). Obviously the longer the tag, the better value. Check at the info booths for more info or to buy tags.

    The parking meters!

    by sangriagirl Written May 6, 2004

    Watch your time carefully when you park at a meter - especially near the Washington St. Mall. I swear the town gets 75% of its revenue from expired meters.

    Also, meters near the mall have to be fed year-round. Other meters (including those on beach drvie) are disassembled from november to April. Just look closely - if a meter still has its guts intact and is flashing at you - feed it!

    Unique Suggestions: Save up your quarters because it's as expensive to park here as in Philly - 25 cents only gets you 20 minutes.
