Cape May Court House is a quaint community just north of Cape May Point and home to the Cape May County Park & Zoo. The zoo is located in the center of Cape May County’s Central Park, and together the zoo and the park cover about 220 acres. The zoo began operation in 1978. Its principal exhibit areas are a 57-acre African Savanna, a free-flight aviary, and a reptile collection. It is also known for two area wineries, Jessie Creek Winery & Natali Vineyards, preserving a history of wine making in the region. Cape May Court House provides easy access to inland waterways, and a short drive to the famous beaches in Stone Harbor and Cape May Point.
