Give the Gift of Time this Holiday Season

Thinking about a unique and special holiday gift for your spouse, your parents, your siblings? What about the gift of time? Time at the beach together making memories. Time together enjoying a special meal in Cape May. Time together walking the beaches and taking in the salt air that only the shore can offer? Time is one thing that can't be bought and we'll never get more of it. Take advantage of the time you have now together and enjoy it together. Just dropped the kids off at college? Maybe plan a weekend away with them over their holiday break so that you have one on one time? Maximize that time you do have with your children and your loved ones. It's one thing you'll never regret!

Seascape is a great place to escape to for a few days or a week. There is plenty to do in the off season and plenty to keep you busy for a weekend getaway! Here are some ideas -

Looking for more holiday specific events - check out the list of events by weekend throughout November and December for upcoming holiday themed events in and around Cape May.

No matter when you plan to travel to the shore - spring, summer, fall or winter - there is always something to do. Sometimes that something is doing nothing at all and that's okay too! That's what 'escaping' is all about sometimes. So why not escape to the Cape and stay at Seascape Diamond Beach? We have availability if you are interested in booking.
