Exploring Strathmere

Venturing beyond Strathmere

The bright lights and gaming tables of Atlantic City are less than an hour's drive north along the New Jersey coast. Its casinos, luxury spas, and restaurants make it a perfect evening excursion for couples or older groups, while the boardwalk, pier, and traditional amusements make it a fun, kitsch day trip for the family. A similar drive south will take you to the family-friendly beach town of Cape May. Its Victorian town center, shops, restaurants, and historic lighthouse are well worth exploring.

Strathmere is a popular summer beach vacation destination. During the summer months, you can expect to enjoy warm temperatures into the 70s and 80s – ideal for hitting the coast or hiring some bicycles and exploring the town and shoreline trails.

Nevertheless, it has been known to snow in the winter months – this is the time to escape the crowds and enjoy an incredibly romantic beach vacation.
