Welcome to Middle Township!

Located in the “middle of it all,” our community offers a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of larger cities while providing access to the same great amenities, businesses, shopping districts, attractions and restaurant establishments. We are located in the heart of Cape May County, minutes from the sandy beaches of Avalon, Stone Harbor and the Wildwoods.

During your time here, plan to explore our ecotourism attractions such as Reeds Beach, where the horseshoe crabs nest or Benny’s Landing Road, where you can take your kayak out into the bay areas and explore our natural surroundings. If it’s shopping you prefer, visit our retail districts in Cape May Court House and Rio Grande, both located along the Route 9 corridor. Your trip to Middle Township will not be complete until you’ve spent time at our world-famous Cape May County Zoo and Park and bring your bike because we have a bike trail extending from the Zoo in Middle Township to Lower Township. And after all of that, you can sit back and relax at one of our local wineries with award-winning bottles of wine and captivating views.
