Christmas in Cape May
Cape May transforms into a winter wonderland every December and despite the mild weather, this year is no exception. Our holiday theme at the inn this year is Starry, Starry Night with a splash of teal so we've decked our halls and trimmed our tree with beautiful shining stars and hues of beachy blue to celebrate this holiday season.

If you can't make it down to see it in person, click here to take a look at some of our holiday decoration pictures.

Out and About in Cape May
Long-time friends from Long Island, NY returned to The Mission Inn for their annual December getaway last weekend and enjoyed many of Cape May's holiday festivities. Matt and Arlene, Jarrod and Michele, Kathy and Tom, and Barbara and Chris took time out of their busy weekend to snap this picture in front of our Christmas mantel. They enjoyed some delicious meals, did some holiday shopping, hung out at the firepit, and saw the annual Christmas parade. We look forward to seeing them again next December!

And did you know that the Cape May County Zoo is open year-round? In fact, it is open every day except Christmas from 10 am to 3:30 pm and entrance is free! Celebrating its 40th anniversary and home to more than 500 animals and 250 species, the zoo houses everything from alpacas to zebras. Some guest favorites include the giraffe exhibit and the new baby snow leopard born earlier this year. The zoo also offers guided tours, behind-the-scenes tours, and up-close animal encounters. Consider planning a visit on your next trip to Cape May.
