Cape May, The Perfect Place to Spend Thanksgiving away from Home

This year many of us living in New Jersey  Shore and  the Cape May local areas have many things to be thankful for.

Hurricane Sandy displaced many New Jersey home owners and destroyed properties, boats and disrupted our neighbors lives. We are most thankful for all of the emergency workers including Police, Fire, Coast Guard, The Red Cross and the Utility workers that struggled to assist and bring normalcy back to our lives.

This year, instead of over spending on over the top gifts and expensive dinners, we plan to make a donation to our favorite charity and local animal rescue service. And this year, we plan to keep it simple and be thankful for the small things in life, spend times with our loved ones and take a brisk walk on the Cape May beaches to help renew and revitalize our spirit.

As the winter season approaches, we enjoy taking a quiet walk on the empty beach, listening to the gulls and getting our faces ice cold. The best part of a Cape May winter day is to  head back to your favorite Bed and Breakfast or Hotel and sit back and enjoy a hot tea or coffee in front of a fireplace while relaxing.

If you want to take a break from the cooking and prepping for a Thanksgiving Dinner, you can visit many restaurants in Cape May that will do the work for you while you enjoy the time with your family.
