Cape May is host to a variety of haunted places, making it the perfect spot to go on a ghost tour! One such haunt is the Washington Inn, where you may hear the mysterious voice of an elderly woman, or witness a ghostly little girl named Elizabeth call out the names of the wait staff. Hotel Macomber is said to be haunted by the ghosts of both former guests and employees. Guests have heard inexplicable banging and seen items move and doors open or close of their own accord; Room 10 is supposed to be the most active.

The Windward House is home to the ghost of an Irish girl named Bridgette, whose activity includes making objects move or go missing. She is particularly fond of earing left on nightstands overnight, though she will usually return those before the guest checks out. Ocean City Mansion has provided similar experiences of items mysteriously vanishing, and guests have also heard footsteps or voices and seen objects moving in the suite. The Inn at 22 Jackson is home to ghost named Esmerelda who guests most commonly see in the turret room. Sea Holly Inn is allegedly haunted by two ghosts, and old man and a young servant girl; guests on the second floor have seen their apparitions and heard conversations when there was nobody around. The Southern Mansion is haunted by numerous ghosts, the most prominent of which are a soldier seen striding through the ballroom and a girl named Esther. When Esther is near people can smell her perfume, hear the rustling of her dress, or hear her laughing.

The Cape May County Historical Museum is allegedly haunted by a spirit with a loud voice. The John F. Craig House B&B is haunted by two ghosts. In Room 4 a little girl with red hair will occasionally appear; in Room 5 a spirit named Lucy will sometimes sew missing buttons back onto clothing. The Flanders Hotel is haunted by a ghost named Emily who can sometime be seen wearing white in the Hall of Mirrors. Winterwood Gift Shop is haunted by Hestor, who will flicker lights, move objects, make audible footsteps, or even appear to visitors. Cape May Bunker, once used to house munitions during WWII, is now known for the occasional sighting of a ghostly crew of soldiers. Higbee Beach is said to be haunted by Higbee himself, who appears when his grave is approached and can be seen chasing the spirit of a slave down the wooded trail. A ghostly sailor has also been seen at the top of a dune, though he quickly disappears.
