I spent 2 days in early November and we had a great time! While the migration movement has diminshed it was such a nice place to visit during the offseason. Cape May is well known for its raptor migration. I recommend the Hawk Platform, Higbee beach, the meadows and Rhea Farm (fee attached to the farm). Cape May is the tip of NJ and is relatively small. I think next time I go I may just rent bicycles to travel bewtween sites. There are lots of local birders and they are friendly and helpful. Accomodations were plentiful. Recommend the Congress Hall Hotel. Its OLD but well kept. Pros
