The best wineries at the Shore

🍷 There are few things better than a glass of wine and an ocean sunset, right? Well, at the Shore (particularly throughout Cape May), there are some popular wineries that you can visit for a tasting flight or to pick up a bottle to bring home. In Cape May, you can visit the town’s first winery (Cape May Winery & Vineyard) for wines including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Riesling, and Chardonnay. Or, stop by Jessie Creek Winery, which stands on a five-acre expanse in Cape May Court House.

For a wide selection of wine, you can pick up wine at Natali Vineyards where you’ll find nearly 30 varieties, including a selection of fruit wines.

Here are the best wineries at the Jersey Shore.

The best mini-golf at the Shore

OK, if you are down the Shore with someone under 21 or with a non-drinker, a winery may not be the best spot for you. Instead, you can play a round of mini-golf at one of the fun (and often themed) mini-golf courses in towns like Wildwood, Ocean City, Atlantic City, and more. In Ocean City, you can find a Medieval-themed golf course with some glow-in-the-dark sections, too. In Wildwood, there’s appropriately themed ocean- and beach-focused mini-golf courses, and in Atlantic City, find yourself a two-level golf course right on the boardwalk.

Here’s where to mini-golf at the Shore.

🤓 A good thing to know

In Philly, you can find gender-neutral bathrooms throughout the city — in South Philly, West Philly, Fishtown, and more — here’s a map of gender-neutral bathrooms in the city.

Thanks for reading! We’ll be back next week with more things to do.
