Park
“Cape May County Park & Zoo is a wonderful, clean zoo, very nice, offers a wide range of animals, snow leopards, giraffes, an aviary, and a reptile and amphibian house. Admission is free, but the zoo is funded on donations so donation boxes are placed throughout the zoo. It has a small outdoor restaurant for lunch or just a snack, or you can pack a lunch and eat at the many pavilions or picnic tables that are stationed in the woods before you enter the zoo. You can purchase food for a quarter to feed the goats and/or the ducks and turtles. There is a carousel and a train ride for younger children. You can pack a lunch and eat at the many pavilions or picnic tables that are stationed in the woods before you enter the zoo. We go a few times a year, and they are constantly upgrading the facility. We love zoos and have been to many, this is one of our favorites. It is located on Route 9 and Crest Haven Road, easily accessed from the Garden State Parkway (exit 11). ”

“2 restaurant in one place. Lobster House is a sit-down restaurant. Fish Market (huge outdoor deck with plenty of outdoor seating overlooking the marina). You will order from the counter (cooked menu or raw) where they sell their day’s catch. So be prepared for the raw fish smell when you order your food. Then you pick up your food behind the fish market. The outdoor area is big space. They have a raw bar (clams, etc) and a regular bar - as you wait for for food. You can take back to Grandview or find a seat and enjoy the experience. ”

“For the best value Italian Kitchen Express just down the street serves enormous portions and they deliver. Mia Mia's fine dining is a BYOB in walking distance and she serves excellent food.
