Each winter for more than 35 years, the picturesque seaside community of Cape May has transformed into a Victorian Christmas village featuring award-winning holiday programs. Embrace this charming setting to learn about treasured holiday traditions that date to the reign of Queen Victoria.


• Learn Victorian etiquette to prepare for a visit to the 1879 Emlen Physick Estate, where during lunch you'll take part in the debate over the merits of drink between a local saloonkeeper and a temperance union member. Then cast your vote on the debate winner.
• Later enjoy a visit with the Physick Family as it describes its preparations for the holidays and discusses its neighbors' foibles.
• Be inspired by the historic district’s holiday finery in a hands-on workshop to create heirloom ornaments for decorating your own home.
