We will be staying in Wildwood for a week but plan to come to Cape May a couple of times during our stay. I've heard parking can be quite difficult overall and that the best bet is to park at the elementary school and take the trolley but I have a couple specific questions. We have reservations at Sapore one evening and I was wondering if we'd have luck finding some street parking up that way? It's only ~1 mile walk from the school and it looks like we could take the trolley partway, but if we could park closer that would just be easier.
For visiting the lighthouse- is there a better time to visit when it is likely to be less crowded and parking most likely to be available?
Thanks in advance.
