Leaming's Run Garden is the largest annual garden in the USA. It is divided into 27 individual gardens. There is also a reconstructed whaler's log cabin.

Leaming’s Run Gardens and Colonial Farm is a "must visit" for everyone in the Cape May County area. Open to the public since 1978, it’s been a favorite place for visitors to relax and enjoy lush gardens in harmony with the natural beauty surrounding them. It’s an outdoor classroom for children and their families to learn about plants and wildlife. It’s also a living history museum, a historic site that offers glimpses into a long, rich history with colonial origins.

There’s something here for everyone: bridges, ponds and nooks are just a part of the many individually designed and expertly crafted gardens that comprise the largest annual gardens in the USA. Leaming’s Run features 25 themed gardens, a fernery, and a shady bamboo grove. Visit the Cooperage Gift Shop where you’ll find gift ideas ranging from books and seeds to dried flower arrangements. Leaming’s Run will educate, inspire, and delight you. The gardens are always changing, so come back often.

Leaming’s Run is the picture-perfect place for a charming garden wedding ceremony. We can help you with all the details of your special day. Perhaps you are planning wedding portraits or a family portrait? Our gardens are available for photography sessions. Call (609) 465-5871 for details. For a truly memorable experience, we offer a catered breakfast or dinner in our gazebo. Enjoy the privacy of a waterside meal and stroll through the gardens if you wish. Your dream of having the entire garden to yourself can come true. Perfect for a romantic anniversary or a special treat. Availability is limited so make your reservation soon.

Hidden among the serenity of the pines, the Colonial Farm brings to life the daily problems faced by the whalers who first settled Cape May County. Tobacco and cotton grow just as it did in 1695. A vegetable garden, laced with herbs, grows outside the one room log cabin. Even the farm animals are historically correct. Take a walk back in time and become part of the 18th century.

Revel's hotel tower, is the tallest structure in Atlantic City and the second tallest in the state of New Jersey at 47 stories (710 ft)216 m (709 ft). The tower is also the second tallest casino tower in the United States. Revel will house 12 restaurants, 6 pools, 3 theaters, 2 night clubs, 44 retail shops and a 5,800 seat arena. Along with height records, the construction process is the largest one in Atlantic City since the construction of the Borgata. The project is being built by Tishman Construction Company of New Jersey. Revel has also selected design firms to aid in the conceptualization and implementation of its casino complex. Scéno Plus, a Montreal-based design firm, collaborates with other professionals to design core entertainment spaces as well as 150,000 feet of casino. In the summer of 2008 the project was officially scaled back to include just one hotel tower with 1,900 rooms due to lack of financing. In late January 2011, Revel C.E.O. Kevin DeSanctis while pitching yet another funding plan on Wall Street, announced that the property would only complete 1,090 rooms in the opening phase, in addition other aspects of the project were to be scaled back to meet the available funding.
