BACKGROUND: With a history as rich as Cape May's, there are bound to be a few skeletons - or at least ghosts - in the closet. Luckily for visitors with a supernatural interest, a small industry has sprung up offering tours of the city's haunted locations.
WALKING TOUR: The Walking Ghost Tour operating out of Elaine's Dinner Theater and themed restaurant at 513 Lafayette St. offers an hour of ghostly tales nightly. http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF8&q=513+Lafayette+St,+CAPE+MAY+NJ&fb=1&gl=us&hnear=&cid=0,0,13003383784719970099&ei=8fDhS8bUGJSC8wSLoJzwAg&ved=0CAcQnwIwAA&hq=513+Lafayette+St,+CAPE+MAY+NJ&ll=38.935344,-74.923174&spn=0.008112,0.011673&z=16&iwloc=A" target="_blank">CLICK HERE FOR DIRECTIONS.
