We had a great week in Cape May. The informative lectures were given by local experts. The field trips complemented the lectures. The hotel is on the beach-- beautiful views and spectacular sunrises. Food was very good. We chose the September program to avoid the summer crowds.

The week in Cape May truly exceeded my expectations. Programs were excellent and very informative as well as entertaining and the scheduling was perfect allowing a leisurely start to the day and just the right amount of free time. Participants were all friendly and fun and Molly, our leader, was great in every way. A most enjoyable and relaxing program indeed!

Our favorite parts of the program were the costumed enactments nearly every night. We certainly learned a lot about Victorians; their philosophy, history, ethics, religion, social structure and economics. I personally felt that there was too much free time, but other participants appreciated its leisurely. Our Program Director, Molly Goodrich, was exceptional.

If you have ever wanted to know how the Victorians lived and relaxed this is the program for you. The pace is relaxing and enjoyable. I would strongly recommend this program.

Extremely well done. Lots of information, presented in a variety of ways, great location, superior meals, and as a first timer, I'm looking for other programs to attend and enjoy as I did this one. Thank You.

I met John Philip Sousa!!! He "joined" us in beautiful Cape May and told us about his very interesting and musical life. He lived in Cape May and I am envious! The houses...oh my! It is beauty and color beyond your wildest expectations! The clip-clop of the horses and carriages also bring you back into a time long ago. The trolley rides are brisk and the lecturers,informative. Delight yourself with almost a week away in the Victorian splendor of yesteryear.
