Washington Street Mall

With knowledgeable merchants, many special services and a large variety of merchandise at great prices, you'll discover Cape May's year round charm.

 

Historic Haunts House Tour

Enjoy a guided tour of select rooms of Cape May's only Victorian house museum, the Physick House Museum, widely reputed to be haunted. Learn about Victorian Spiritualism as your guide compares the methods of spirit contact used by the Victorians with those of today's modern ghost hunting techniques.

 

Ghosts of Cape May Trolley Tour

Nobody knows Cape May's ghosts better than psychic medium Craig McManus. Your MAC guide will relay his findings on this spooky trolley tour through darkened streets of Cape May beneath flickering gas lamps. Discover just what the ghosts said to McManus and where they are found.

 

Temperance Presentation

During the late Victorian Period, the issues of temperance and prohibition were as much "hot topics" in Cape May as they were in the rest of the country. This living history program presents a debate between a local salonkeeper and a representative of the Women's Rights Movement and other reform efforts.

 

Cape May Point Tour

Travel through West Cape May to the tip of Cape May's penninsula, which is one of the most celebrated migratory locations in North America. Entering Cape May Point State Park, you can view the fully restored Lighthouse, that was built in 1859. Then, it's onto Sunset Beach where the sunken ship "Atlantus" is still visible, and enjoy a short shopping stop.

 

Magic & Mystery House Tour

Take a step back in time to the Victorian Era in this 1879 restored mansion and learn about the Victorian's fascination with magic, illusion, the mysterious and the odd. Hear about the Great Lafayette, the world's greatest magician; Houdini, the astounding escape artist; Ionia, the Goddess of Mystery; Pepper's Ghost, is it real, or just an illusion? Sherlock Holmes, Jack the Ripper and much more!

 

Spirits & Oddities Trolley Tour

They did what??!! Headless photography? Electric Corsets? Coffin Torpedoes??
