Usually filled with fun in the sun, relaxing at the beach and strolling the boardwalk, there is one unique attraction that gets a lot of attention in West Cape May.
Beach Plum Farm is a working farm that supplies produce and meat to restaurants in town. They have a market that often offers outdoor dining during the summer. For spring break, it’s all about camp for the kids.
Wilderness Adventures is already underway, with sessions through April 24.

Beach Plum has grown all kinds of produce since 2008. But for spring break visitors, they offer new opportunities for fun and excitement.
Campers can participate in scavenger hunts and attend tie-dyeing classes. And don’t forget the nature walks and of course the feeding of the farm animals.
“Anyone who is hesitant to come to the farm, give it a chance. There are so many beautiful sites to see, the kids can feed the chickens and participate in the activities we have. It really is a really cool place that a lot of people don’t really imagine they’d be in Cape May County,” said Annie Snyder of Beach Plum Farm.

There’s also something new at the iconic Cape May Lighthouse that millions of people have visited and climbed since it opened to the public in 1988. This spring, visitors can experience a new nighttime exhibit called ‘Stairway to the Stars”. It’s a chance for stargazers to climb to the top and enjoy the evening from a pretty cool vantage point.
“We thought it was cool for you to climb up and be 156 feet up in the sky and hopefully it will be magical,” said Susan Krysiak of Cape May Museum+Arts+Culture.
The seasonal event at the lighthouse is scheduled for specific dates coordinated with the new moon. This is when the moon is darkest, giving the stars a chance to shine.
