Take a step back in time with a Victorian Christmas celebration in Cape May.  A visit to historic Cape May illustrates "where yesterday meets today.” In America's Oldest Seaside Resort, you may forget you are in the 21st century as you view many restored Victorian homes. The architectural style of the late 1800's, later known as Victoriana, decorated the city with gingerbread, stained glass, cupolas and private gardens as each new home tried to out-do the others. The world's finest fabrics, furniture and wall treatments were used in these magnificent homes that were used as summer residences. Many of these magnificent structures are still used as private residences and many are opened to the public during the Christmas holidays. Family traditions are remembered in individual theme presentations. Don't miss this Holiday Victorian Favorite!

Sun., December 2

There is always something fun and exciting to do in Victorian Cape May. Create memories of your own in this historic resort city. Upon our arrival we'll visit the Emlen Physick Estate. Return to the era of Victorian opulence and experience the feeling of Christmas in the 1890's, while you enjoy a self-guided tour of this impressive "Stick Style" mansion. Then we will go to our accommodations at The Grand Hotel (609-884-5611), where you will have time to freshen up and relax after a day of touring. PLEASE NOTE: The Grand Hotel is an all NON SMOKING property. Then we'll embark on a delightful "Jolly Ole Trolley Tour" of Cape May. Enjoy a front row view of Cape May's decorations as the trolley winds its way through town. We'll enjoy stories of holidays past and Christmas caroling as well. After the tour we're off to Elaine's Famous Dinner Theater. Your meal choices are 1) Lemon Pepper Tilapia or 2) Chicken Cordon Bleu. Following our meal, we'll enjoy Scrooge the Musical. This spectacular holiday event has been sold out seven years in a row. Elaine's adds its own unique blend of humor to this classic Dickens' tale. Scrooge the Musical has been hailed the most energetic, beautifully staged and thoroughly entertaining Christmas Musical ever. We will return to the hotel after the show.
