Very nice area to shop at a variety of different shops, many with local Cape May items and souvenirs. A few nice restaurants with outside seating is great. Nicely decorated in a beach area. We go here every time we're in town.

Nice Outside mall. Lots of locally owned shops and plenty of dining options. There's also a kiosk where you can purchase various tours. The trolley tour of the historic district leaves from here.

Prices are a little steep at some restaurants. Shops have some unique items and at the minimum are interesting to see.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Are there parking garages/lots near Washington Street mall or is it street parking only?

It is street parking only. There may be one small parking lot but parking seems to be the problem. The parking meters don't give you all that much time.
