Why September is the Best Time to Visit Cape May and Harry’s Ocean Bar & Grille. 

Sun’s out, fun’s out. We love September in Cape May. The weather is gorgeous, the water is warm, and the crowds are few and far between. It’s a great time to visit. Plus, there are a lot of fun things to do this September in Cape May.

Summer Weather Continues 

In September, come prepared for warm weather and *summertime* fun. Temperatures remain mild and typically skies are clear. Plus, there are fewer visitors and that means more of everything for you. If you stay in the first half of the month, you’ll enjoy the beach just as you would in August. You may also try these other activities we love to do in September: 

  • Wine Tasting 
  • Shopping 
  • Outdoor dining 
  • Scenic Walking 

Things to do - Cape May

Fewer Crowds and Lower Prices 

Cape May is less expensive in September. You’re likely to find great rates on hotels but book early as September is a popular time for weddings in Cape May. You won’t have to worry about things like beach passes or packed parking lots either. Plus, all the best places to eat and shop stay open too. 


The Ocean is Still Very Warm 

In September, enjoy the warmest ocean temps of the year, plus beach service by Harry’s! There’s nothing better than watching the waves roll in with an excellent lunch, beachside. That’s exactly what you’ll get at the beach at Madison Avenue. This is a great time to lounge on the beach (you’ll have much of it to yourself) and splash around in the water. Be aware there are typically no lifeguards on duty after Labor Day so play it safe and read the daily weather/ocean report. 

There you have it. Five great reasons to visit Cape May in September. Up next? October, which is also a lovely time to visit. We can’t wait to welcome you soon.
