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!

Cape May restaurant has a new reservation format

July 24th, 2010 by johnmatusiak

Louisa’s Restaurant is a guest favorite at the Bacchus Inn Bed & Breakfast. It is a charming little secret tucked away on Jackson St. Louisa’s does food simply well. It is not a fussy place.

It is a close restaurant with ,french cafe style, close sitting. If you can deal with that you are in for a treat. The menu is on a chalk board. It consist on several fishes, crab cakes, and a poultry dish. The salads are fabulous. There are several salad choices each with there own unique identity. The desserts are homemade with love and care. Indulge in dessert it is soooooo worth it.

Louisa’s is usually a challenging reservation. They have made the process a little easier. Now you can make reservations one week in advance. If you want to try Louisa’s I strongly recommend booking the week before. Then just relax and enjoy a simple meal cooked with care.
