You can experience our history at the Historic Cold Spring Village, the Cape May Lighthouse, the Naval Air Station Wildwood, or the Cape May County Museum to name a few.

This area became known back then as the “President’s Playground.” Presidents Lincoln, Grant, Arthur, Buchanan, Hayes, and Benjamin Harrison all vacationed here.
