RVers know that RVing is a lifestyle whether you are a weekend warrior or year-round traveler. Seeing parts unknown and making friends of strangers is all a part of the journey, but the destinations along the way can make or break the trip. The Cape May–Lewes Ferry is one surefire way to maximize road time and experience the best of coastal Route 9 along the way. Because the Ferry connects New Jersey and Delaware, it is the only way to continuously travel this scenic route and avoid the notorious traffic nightmares of the I-95 Northeast Corridor. With arts, culture, history and fun on both sides of the bay, each trip can be an interactive and enriching experience for any traveler.
After an extended time on the road, the Ferry is a great way for travelers to stretch out, unwind, relax and leave the navigation to someone else. The Ferry boasts some of the best sights and sounds of the coastline including bay breezes, migratory birds and sunny decks overlooking picturesque lighthouses and gorgeous shorelines. Many guests catch a glimpse of a dolphin…or two. Even whales have been known to make a special appearance!
Each side of the Delaware Bay hosts dozens upon dozens of campgrounds and camper-friendly stops for nature excursions and sightseeing. If you choose to camp nearby for a night or more, Cape May, New Jersey and Lewes, Delaware offer plenty of beaches, boardwalks, shopping and enjoyable dining. Both areas are historic and have unique attractions steeped in the history of the area from early settlers. Likewise, arts and culture are in full force at each destination.
On the Ferry, sun worshippers can soak up the sun in comfy Adirondack chairs or right on the top deck for the best views. For those who prefer the indoor atmosphere of the Ferry, the view is spectacular from the comfort of inside seating. Meeting new, friendly faces or even enjoying your own travel companions is even more fun with a cocktail! On and off the Ferry can be a whole day affair. The grounds are perfect for strolling and sunbathing. Both Cape May and Lewes have onsite bayside dining and free mini golf as well as gift shops and playgrounds for the family.
