I originally wrote the following post on my CapeMayX website (which is no longer active) a few years back and decided on this current rainy weather stretch, the article has relevance and is worth another look.
The following tip is a super fun thing you can do with your family and the kids (and the kid in all of us) will surely love it. We're talking about the Vanilla Bean Creamery which features Cape May's best (and only maybe?) home made ice cream. They are only open during the summer months but when they are, we highly recommend making the trip to get some.
Each we love to recommend for our guests fun new things to do in Cape May. Activities or tips that can be the perfect compliment to families visiting Cape May in a vacation home rental; that can add to the guest house experience. To get started, here's our first pick for the 2010 summer:
Ellie's Bakery in West Cape May
They have absolutely best sticky buns EVER! Run by Ellie and her fun daughter Kate (she has a very smart wit), this new bakery in West Cape May opened their doors last year and were a big hit. Head on out in the morning with your kids, it makes the early morning bike ride take on a whole new sense of anticipation and fun. After your first sticky bun you'll know what we're talking about. Get there early because the line can get long and it's best to get your buns right out of the oven (if you know what I mean)!
