Family fun in Sea Isle City

Sea Isle City on New Jersey’s scenic Cape May peninsula is one of the state’s most popular summer playgrounds. This historic community has been welcoming vacationers since the 1880s, when influential local developer Charles K. Landis had a vision of transforming a tract of Ludlam barrier island into a waterway resort to rival Venice. Remnants of its elegant past can still be glimpsed in surviving buildings such as the Colonnade Inn, a striking example of Victorian architecture. Today’s lively resort places the accent firmly on family fun, with Sea Isle City vacation rentals providing a homey environment for groups of all sizes.

Things to do

A close look at Sea Isle City’s history

Sea Isle City Historical Museum offers a fascinating look at life in this unique community through the decades. The mission of this hands-on museum is to preserve local archives and artifacts for future generations. The collection quickly outgrew its early homes and moved to its current location within the Cape May County Library in 2011. The open-plan design offers an overview of the eye-catching displays, which include intimate family albums and bridal gowns, as well as plenty of space to explore each exhibit up close. The museum is open year-round Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday; admission is free.

Activities

Sea Isle City—a healthy regard for the environment

Imaginative annual events such as the fancy-dress Polar Bear Plunge and the Sara the Turtle Festival, designed to introduce inquisitive youngsters to environmental issues, set Sea Isle City apart from more typical beach resorts. The city became one of the first in New Jersey to install streetlights powered by natural energy, while its turtle-conservation programs have been instrumental in protecting endangered diamondback terrapins. The unspoiled beach remains Sea Isle City’s proudest feature—from sunbathing and yoga to free concerts and moonlit strolls, there are myriad ways to absorb its invigorating beauty.

Sea Isle City—not just for summer

Demand for Sea Isle City vacation rentals peaks during high summer, when the ocean breezes keep humidity in check.
