Need a Mini Vacation? Consider a Weekend Getaway in Cape May NJ

Fall is a lovely time to visit the shore. While you may not be able to sunbathe on the beach or the rooftop deck, that doesn’t mean there won’t be anything to do. A weekend getaway at The Grand Hotel in Cape May NJ could be the exact escape you had in mind. Here at the Jersey shore, the end of summer begins our second season and it offers many benefits.

Room to Breathe

The crowds of peak season at the shore may not be for everyone. For some, visiting a beach resort during their off-season may be more appealing. The atmosphere is a bit more laid back compared the hustle and bustle of the summer season. There’s no rushing to beat the crowds to get a great meal or visit a popular attraction. The pace is more leisurely allowing you to linger over lunch or take your time exploring.

Perfect for Couples

Family vacations are great, but what if you don’t have kids or you’re empty nesters. You may be looking for a more intimate, couples only weekend getaway. A second season stay at the Grand is the perfect opportunity to get some quality time with your significant other. Spend the day taking in some of the local attractions, do a little shopping or take a leisurely afternoon stroll on the beach, just the two of you. For those who enjoy the theater, no need to travel to the Big Apple. Enjoy a play presented by Cape May Stage at The Robert Shackleton Playhouse. Then end your day with a delicious and romantic dinner for two at our premier steak and seafood restaurant, Hemingway’s.

Recreation or Relaxation

No matter which of these is your preference, a second season weekend getaway in Cape May offers both. The Grand has on-site bike rentals so you can cruise around town and take in the lovely Victorian architecture while getting your exercise.

If your idea of recreation is more like a workout, a professionally equipped fitness center is just an elevator ride away. Then again, maybe you just want to relax with a cocktail and take in the oceanfront view.
