Tour Information

Start off gliding through Old City, learning about the historical center of Philadelphia and hear stories about revolutionary times, as well as an introduction to one of Philly's most famous inventions: The Cheesesteak. You'll pass through Chinatown, marveling at the Friendship Gate and much more in this vibrant neighborhood. Then you'll take in the heart of Philadelphia's Center City: galleries, shops, theatres, hotels, and more. Take a quick pass by Jefferson Hospital - one of the first hospitals in the United States. And then head south. After a quick stop and the enchanting Magic Gardens, head on to your first cheesesteak stop - the world famous corner that's home to Pat's and Geno's.  Next head north through the historic Italian Market and back onto South Street. Stopping again for another bite and hearing about how this area became the "alternative" section of the original city. You'll then head back out, going north into the heart of Society Hill. One of the oldest neighborhoods in Philadelphia, Society Hill boasts beautiful, classic homes. Once you come through Society Hill, you'll stop for a final cheesesteak at one of several options along Market Street, before taking in other sights of Old City and heading back.

We will make safety a high priority on your adventure, and we know you'll return with a much greater appreciate of the City of Brotherly Love by the end of your exciting Philadelphia Segway tour!

About Historic Cape May

 

Welcome to the Blue Pig Tavern

Cape May, NJ.

The Blue Big Tavern is the proud winner of the 2018 OpenTable Diner’s Choice Awards.

Tucked in the corner of Congress Hall that fronts on Congress Place and Perry Streets, its name derived from a gambling parlor side in Congress Hall in the 1800s.  Earlier still, in the 1700s Elias Hughes operated a tavern for whalers on this site.  It was the first tavern in Cape May. 

Beloved by locals, there is no better place to enjoy American classics while cozying up to the magnificent dining room fireplace.  Chef Michael Greenstein has implemented a delicious farm-to-table menu featuring fresh produce, herbs and eggs from our very own Beach Plum Farm just 2 miles from the restaurant.

 

About the Cape May Winery & Vineyard

CapeMayWinery.com

Cape May Winery has grown over the past two decades to produce some of South Jersey's most distinguished wines. Our vines encompass over four different vineyards, containing over 70 acres, from which we grow and harvest eleven grape varietals. They invite you to come and experience their winery and take in the breathtaking views of the oldest vines in Cape May County. Come and see what makes the Cape May area such a premier grape growing region. From Cape May's sandy soil to mild climate, our grapes have the ideal temperature in which to grow.

The overall wine production includes a variety of whites and reds, ranging from dry to sweet. Their main focus is on the viniferous grapes including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Pinot Grigio, Riesling, and Chardonnay. They also feature blended wines, both dry and sweet, which really hit the mark with customers.

Their signature white wine is the Cape May Barrel Fermented Chardonnay, which is fermented and then aged in French Oak for over 16 months. The soft buttery flavors of vanilla ready the palette for a seductive taste, which then finishes crisp with a dry fruitiness that is "shore" to please.

Their goal is to find a wine for each person’s unique palate. Cape May Winery produces over 20 different styles of wine and when you partake in a wine tasting; their professional wine associates guide you to find the perfect match for your drinking preference. Of course, they encourage tasting a variety of wines as your palate changes over time and you may actually enjoy something you might not have before!
