Elementary, My Dear New Jerseyans!

By Brianne Harrison

Whip out your violin and deerstalker—it’s time for Cape May’s Sherlock Holmes Weekend! Slip into character (and period garb) as you take on a case involving a medical investigation, a case of mistaken identity, a dangerous villain, and, of course, a dark secret. Track down clues that’ll lead to a $250 grand prize and other valuable gifts.

The weekend kicks off Friday evening as you gather for desserts and coffee and meet Dr. Watson, who’ll fill you in on his past with Holmes and get the mystery started. On Saturday afternoon you’ll visit some of Cape May’s loveliest Victorian locales in a search for clues and compare notes with Holmes and Watson to see how you’re doing. Sunday morning, Holmes will unlock the mystery at a hearty brunch with all the characters and participants.

Full weekend packages are available for $180 per couple or $95 per person. Packages include the welcome reception, tour, lunch, and all performances. Overnight packages run $270 per person, based on double occupancy, and include a room for two nights in one of Cape May’s cozy bed and breakfasts, beachfront hotels, historic hotels, or Victorian suites, as well as breakfast, a $75 dinner gift certificate (per couple), and all the Sherlock Holmes Weekend activities. Call 800.275.4278, x 185 for more information or to reserve your overnight package.
