5 Must See Attractions on Your Cozy Winter Getaway to NJ

Groundhogs Day was just a few weeks ago, and sadly, we’re in for six more weeks of winter which means you still have time to get away for a cozy getaway to our Jersey Shore resorts before spring has sprung.  Here are 5 of our favorite attractions to see while you’re visiting the Atlantic Coast and our ICONA resorts.

Historic City

You’ll find that Cape May New Jersey happens to be one of the oldest resort towns on the coast and that means you’ll want to enjoy our fabulous Historic Cape May Tour! We’ve partnered with the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts at our ICONA Diamond Beach and ICONA Cape May locations for this fantastic tour. Experience the stunning Victorian buildings that have been preserved by the National Historic District. Check out our tickets here, and see all the historical places you can visit with our discounted prices.

The Lighthouse

You’ll want to see the Cape May Lighthouse up close when you come to town! Located two miles away from the city this beaming lighthouse was built in 1859 and visitors can do the climb to the top! Plus, don’t forget to check out the impressive Visitors Orientation Center which hosts a museum shop and information about the lighthouse.

Take Flight!

If you’re really into aviation, you’ll love visiting the Naval Air Station Wildwood (NASW) Aviation Museum. This museum is located within the historic Hanger #1 of the Cape May Airport but what you can experience and learn is even more fascinating. The museum boasts several aircraft and displays where you can climb a real air traffic control tower, sit inside of a cockpit, or enjoy the flight simulators, plus so much more!

Main Street Style

Find your street style in a Main Street-like mall in Cape May at the Washington Street Mall. You’ll find that this outdoor shopping place is perfect for visitors wanting to see the ideal gift to bring home. With lots of local stores, sweet shops, and unique locations for souvenirs this will genuinely be a shoppers paradise, and it’s close to the beach so you’ll get the gentle breeze and salty air of the Atlantic while being outdoors.

Grab a Brew

You won’t want to forget stopping by the Avalon Brew Pub for some delicious beer. It’s also the only microbrewery on the entire coast of New Jersey, meaning it’s steps from the shoreline! And who doesn’t love a tasty brew to go along with the perfect sunset?

 

Spring break is one of the busiest seasons, and you’ll love the gentle coastal breeze of our cozy season before the crowds come to our Jersey Shore Resorts. Experience so much more when you visit the sandy shores of New Jersey. There is no time but now to book your last winter getaway to our fantastic ICONA locations!
