ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Mouth-watering delicacies await you in the gourmand's paradise of Cape May, named “the restaurant capital of New Jersey” by The New York Times. Learn about food production with expert-led field trips to the docks to meet the charter fleet captain. At a local winery, the vintner takes you to the vineyard and cellar and conducts a wine tasting. And at area restaurants, learn the secrets and techniques from the chefs.


• Enjoy a trolley ride to Fisherman's Wharf for an exploration of the fishery and the third-largest commercial harbor in the country.
• Cultivate your culinary skills through demonstrations on food preparation, presentation, nutrition and pairing wines with foods.
• Experience a living-history evening of music by John Philip Sousa — a frequent visitor to Cape May — and a debate on the dangers of “demon rum” by a saloon keeper and temperance advocate. Vote on the debate winner.
