Cape May Zoo is a great attraction for fall visitors

September 14th, 2010 by johnmatusiak

In Cape May we have visitors in every season: spring, summer, fall, and winter. Each season is unique and offer guest a variety of activities. At the Bacchus Inn Bed and Breakfast guest rave about the variety of options away from the beach. In fall  the birds are migrating, the leaves are changing color, the wine grapes are being harvested, and the days are shortening and cooling. In the cool weather the beaches are less crowded and the visitors turn to alternatives to enjoy their time away. One great fall attraction for the young and the young at heart is the Cape May Zoo.

The Cape May Zoo is located just a few minutes from Cape May just off the Garden State Parkway a left at Crest Haven Road. Admission to the Cape May Zoo is free but a donation is requested at the entrance.  The Zoo covers a large area and the larger animals have room to roam.  There are lions, tigers, and  bears of course.  There are two new attractions as well. The baby Snow Leopards were born in the spring. They live in their mother’s enclosure and are very cute. The other attraction will be leaving this fall. It is a Cambodian crocodile. He is currently living in the alligators winter indoor enclosure. He will be sent home when the temperatures fall and the alligators are forced indoors.  There is plenty to see at the Cape May Zoo from the small snowy white owl to large snow leopard with cubs. Visitors will get their exercise visiting all the enclosures. Scooters are available for elderly visitors that find the larger area too challenging.

The animals are not the only attraction. There is also a park surrounding the Cape May Zoo. The park offers grills, covered seating areas and open seating over an extensive area . Kids have a choice of parks that offer slides, swings, tubes, and learning boards.

As the weather cools to a pleasant strolling temperature the Cape May Zoo is a great outdoor day. One of our repeat guests at the Bacchus Inn bed and breakfast, Jim and Marge, make it a point to visit Cape May and the Zoo each fall. Maybe you should visit this fall too!

MAC victorian Stained Glass Tour is Illuminating

August 11th, 2010 by johnmatusiak

MAC(Mid Atlantic Center for Arts) is an asset to the Cape May community because of the wonderful historical tours they share with tourist and residents. The stained glass tour offers a beautiful focus on one aspect of victorian architecture, the windows.

These windows are more than just portals of light and ventilation.  They are artworks with many designs demonstrating meticulous craftsmanship. There are endless varieties of color.   Some designs are landscapes, others are religious scenes, while others are geometric designs.  These beautiful windows and transoms speckle the streets and provide spectacular views for an evening walk.

Mac provides a tour which gives a more historical insight into this victorian architectural feature. The Bacchus Inn Bed & Breakfast is one of the featured properties of the MAC tour.  Find out more information of this tour and many others from the This Week in Cape May publication provided in the foyer of the Bacchus Inn Bed & Breakfast or by visiting our Mac info page.

Cape May has some Old faces in New Places on the Washington Street Mall

July 26th, 2010 by johnmatusiak

The hot new T-shirt in Cape May is titled, “Capemaniac”. For many visitors their trip to Cape May is a ritual, an old habit that is too good to break.

Many have a predetermined plan nurtured and edited over years to provide the perfect getaway.  This may include a walk on the Washington Street Mall or a bike ride to the Cape May Point lighthouse.

For some it is all about “that” store or restaurant. This year has brought some changes. Tisha’s restaurant has been a mainstay of Beach Ave for years. Tisha’s restaurant provided great food with a picture perfect view of the ocean. The convention hall projected forced a move and now the restaurant has moved from the beach to the Washington Street Mall.

Tisha’s restaurant reopened on Friday July 23,2010. Two of our guests here at the Bacchus Inn Bed & Breakfast went to dinner last evening. They loved the ambience and were pleasantly reassured from their dining experience that Tisha’s is still a fine Cape May restaurant. The breakfast ritual at the Bacchus Inn is a review of  the previous night’s dinner. Jim and Joanne,longtime repeat guest, wanted everyone to know …that the new Tisha’s still has the great food while set in an elegant dining room”. So if you loved Tisha’s before on Beach Ave then try it again at its new location on the Washigton Street mall. If you have never been to Tisha’s restaurant then you should make a point to try one of the more refined spots of Cape May.

Tisha’s restaurant has a new neighbor, Bath Time. Bath Time was formerly located across from Swain’s hardware. Now it is conveniently located on the Washington Street Mall. Bath Time  specializes in custom scented bath salts but it also has other supplies for the bathroom.

Both Tisha’s and Bath Time have been long time businesses in Cape May.  They are a custom part of many visitors Cape May experience. Now they are very convenient neighbors to visit on the Washington Street Mall.
