Cape May, NJ —Is there a more welcome thought than Easter in Cape May?

This brutal winter tested even the hardiest of winter lovers. Spring could not come soon enough. Lucky for us, Easter's on the early side this year - Sunday, April 4th.

Right now, spring peepers are singing their frog song and the crocuses and daffodils are now in bloom.

If you’re planning a trip to Cape May to enjoy Easter, there will be plenty to do. The weather forecast calls for sun and seasonally warm temperatures Easter weekend. Sounds ideal.

Here are some ideas:

Take an Easter Fashion Stroll

Not to be missed is the Cape May Easter Fashion Stroll, an annual tradition. It’s a celebration of frilly dresses and bows, fancy hats, and pastels. Everyone 's invited to wear their finest and stroll along the mall, competing for best-dressed prizes.

It takes place on Easter Sunday, April 4, at 1PM on the Washington Street Mall, Cape May.

Easter Egg Hunts
