Who would spend the holidays in Cape May? A beach town in the winter? Yes, indeed. Cape May is hopping with Christmas activities. The Physick Estate has a special tour – The Physick Family Christmas. Several interpreters play the roles of Dr. Physick, his mother and his aunt – and emphasize what a lecherous (that is, fun-loving) old fellow he was.What’s amazing is that they are convincing as the prissy mother, the man-about-town son, and the suffragette aunt, and they always get the history right too.
December 14 and 28, there will be two of the biggest house-tours of the year – The Christmas Candlelight Tours. Over a dozen houses are listed on each tour and they guarantee that your head will be swimming with wallpapers, antiques and decorations.
The Lamplighter Tour shows you about five inns at a time (a much easier to digest number) and is available on December 13, 20, 27, 30 and 31. Come stay with us at the very decorated Leith Hall bed and breakfast and enjoy the holiday season the old-fashioned way.
