Don't miss the chance to stroll through the trails at the meadows. It's an easy walk with so many sights and sounds of nature. Even if you're not a 'birder' you will surely enjoy the visit. The Conservancy does a wonderful job and important work...More

This is a lovely walk amid the marshes. Many varied birds frequent the area. Just be aware it is hot...no shade so be prepared. Also lovely in fall during the migration!

Fairly well maintained nature area and hiking trail on the south end of NJ. Parking is a little bit limited but never packed, and you can follow the trails all the way to the Cape May Point lighthouse and park.

Hi Mom-Mom23 The Meadows I reviewed is a great bird sanctuary in Cape May. You are looking at a hotel, I think. Sorry. But if in Cape May, definitely go to this sanctuary. Cheers TommyBoy94
