“Nice place to walk off your calories, browse and stroll”

Washington Street Mall
Ranked #6 of 60 things to do in Cape May
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 March 2012

The great things about the Washington Street Mall is that it's easily walkable, for it's entire length, and it's a few blocks in from the beach. So it co-anchors walking in and around Cape May the way two large department stores do in a mall. It was really shut down in February though.

The Washington Street Mall has many shops and dining. It is quaint and close to B & B's and hotels. If you want to find a special gift whether Cape May related, nautical or something special you must visit these shops. They are all unique in their own way. These shops are also right by Congress Hall ( Historic hotel) and The Victorian Motel (where we stayed the last 2 times )..so that's a great plus.

The Washington Street Mall is THE place to visit if you like shopping and eating! We walked there from our hotel several times during our week there. The shops had just about anything a tourist could want to buy. We enjoyed a couple of the restaurants too. We also started a trolley tour; tickets could be purchased right there--very convenient. We would visit Washington Street Mall again.

It is so great to walk the mall late evening. There is such a feeling of community, even though you are among strangers. Granted it was New Years weekend. But there were so many hello's and Happy New Year to you that it was like being amoung friends and family. I LOVE Washington Mall!!!

This place is adorable! In the summer, it is nice to stroll and people watch but in the winter it is the best spot to Christmas shop for unique gifts. There are so many quaint specialty shops - a welcome change from the average urban/suburban malls. Stuff is usually very pricey, but in December the sales are ON and there is something for everyone here!
