Cape May Parking

First the good news: there is no alternate side of the street parking. Now the bad news:there is no alternate side of the street parking. The reality: there ARE parking meters.

Parking in Cape May is an art form in the summer months. There are free spots along side streets away from the beach. Closer to the beachfront, parking meters are in effect from 10AM to 10PM. The cost: 25 cents for each 20 miinute period.

Bring lots of quarters. Or park the car on an unmetered side street. Once you park the car..LEAVE IT THERE!

Cape May was made for walking

It's a very compact place. Walking is really the best way to see this historic town. You can also rent a bike (or bring your own.) And there are shuttle buses running during the busy season that stop at some of the more popular destinations.

Many Cape May bed and breakfast inns and Cape May hotels and motels offer either on site parking or free parking at a parking lot.
