BUFFET BREAKFAST in 501 BEACH
VISIT CAPE MAY POINT STATE PARK AND LIGHTHOUSE
Cape May Point State Park is located on the historic Cape May Peninsula at the southern tip of New Jersey. The park is 190 acres and is an ever-changing shoreline region of dunes, coastal (freshwater) marsh and ponds, wooded islands and varied uplands. The park is home to the Cape May Point Lighthouse, a 157 foot tall structure (217 steps) that is still commissioned as an aid to navigation. For a fee, visitors can climb the lighthouse for a panoramic view of the Cape May peninsula. The oil shed adjacent to the lighthouse has been converted into a small welcome center and gift shop. The park also has an Environmental Center that houses exhibits, which display the natural and cultural heritage of the Cape May region. There is an exhibit of "Cape May Diamonds," the smooth clear quartz crystals found on nearby beaches. Also on display are exhibits about bird migration, shoreline erosion, local Indians and the marine environment. The land where the park is now located was used as a coastal defense base during World War II. Bunkers were erected in 1942; one in the park and others across the bay in Lewes, Delaware as protection against possible enemy attack. It may be seen from the pavilion located on the oceanside of the parking lot. It was originally situated 900 feet from the sea, but severe coastal erosion and storms have washed away the land in front of and under the bunker. At low tide the remains of gun mounts may be seen in front of the bunker. During the Korean War, the bunker was used as a radio transmitter station for the Navy's Atlantic fleet. It was deactivated in 1963 and the land was transferred in 1964 to the State of New Jersey for recreational purposes. On the far side of the parking lot are wooden decks used for viewing birds and wildlife. From here, you can bird watch and access the many nature trails and paths throughout this location.
At Sunset Beach, take note of the cylindrical tower on the left with peepholes all around as you enter the parking lot. This is Fire Tower #23, dating from 1942 in World War II. It was built to spot submarines and manned for coastline protection. There were fifteen such towers stretching from North Wildwood NJ to Bethany Beach, DE. Four were in Cape May County, NJ. The towers located in North Wildwood and Wildwood Crest were torn down. A third tower is located inside the Grand Hotel on Beach Drive in Cape May.
VISIT SUNSET BEACH
At Sunset Beach, you may also hunt for Cape May "diamonds," a natural stone of pure quartz crystal on the sandy beach. It appears as a white frosted pebble when found. The main collecting area is at the Concrete Ship located at the foot of Sunset Boulevard where they come ashore continuously. They are of diverse colors and shades and vary from the size of little peas to the size of walnuts. Many are colorless and resemble genuine diamonds - others are tinted yellow or amber brown. These pebbles are bright and clear when wet, but become dull when they are dry. When tumbled or cut, these quartz pebbles become clear sparkling gems. Tell your group to check out the beautiful settings made with our Cape May diamonds that are available in the Gift Shop. While hunting your diamonds, check out the concrete ship, the Atlantus, located just offshore. The Atlantus was part of a fleet of concrete ships that the US Government commissioned in World War I when steel was scarce. After the war, she was scuttled in a ship's graveyard in Pig Point, Virginia. In the 30's, she was refloated by a gentleman who wanted to bring her to Cape May Point to be filled with sand and turned into a wharf for the proposed Cape May Ferry. On her way into Cape May Point, there was a storm and she was driven back towards the open ocean. During the night, the tide turned and she was tossed onto the shoals surrounding Sunset Beach where you may see her remains today. One of the postcards available in the gift shop shows her gradual deterioration over the past decades.

NATALI VINEYARDS & TASTING
The award-winning Natali Vineyards has been producing delicious wines since 2004 and has become a destination for wine lovers.

To cap off your experience, enjoy a tasting of these local wines, accompanied by cheese and crackers. This tour includes a commemorative glass to take home.
