Do the Shore at Home: April 1

Events are cancelled, some of our favorite activities are closed, and people are told to practice social distancing. So how do you ‘Do The Shore’ when you can’t leave your home? These local businesses are doing their best to bring the shore to you.

Take a Free Tour of the Emlen Physick Estate
Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities

The Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities (MAC) is offering everyone near and far the opportunity to take a virtual tour of the Emlen Physick Estate, the first tour of its kind in 50 years of MAC history. MAC wanted to give their loyal visitors a way to experience Cape May without being yet able to travel here due to the Coronavirus. You can find the tour on their website at capemaymac.org or their YouTube Channel. If you would like to make a donation to support MAC during this uncertain time, visit capemaymac.org/donateto-mac.

Take Online Workout Classes
Miracles Fitness

Miracles Fitness, located in Rio Grande, is bringing workout classes to your living room while the gym is closed. The dedicated staff at Miracles Fitness is live-streaming classes on their Facebook page, including Zumba, Yoga, Boot Camp, and more! If you miss the live stream, you can go back at any time to watch the videos, as well. To join in on the fun, visit Miracles Fitness’ Facebook page @MiraclesFitnessHQ.

Attend Virtual Zoo School
Cape May County Park & Zoo

Even though the zoo is closed, the animals are still out and about so the Cape May County Park & Zoo is bringing the zoo to you! Join the zookeepers Monday through Friday at 11:30 a.m. as they take you on a virtual tour of the zoo. They will feature a short clip of a different animal and teach you all about it. At the end of every clip, they will have a challenge for you to do at home! All videos are featured on the zoo’s Facebook page @CapeMayCountyParkZoo and on their website at cmczoo.com.
