Cape May is a beautiful beach area but one of the most crowded ones I've ever been to, so it's very unlikely you will find empty beach or boardwalk.....
Also, a lot of the hotels are bed and breakfast type in old fashioned historic homes. Last time I was there I was able to get a room in a regular type hotel but it wasn't easy, very few available. And the hotels are mostly old and a bit rundown (albeit well maintained. Not the type with a lobby area where adults or kids can hang out exactly).

Not really unless you drive a bit to get to other attractions. It's a very small town with expensive boutiques and gift shops basically. A grocery store. Etc. I think there's a little trolley ride with a guided tour. But honestly I wouldn't bother going if I wasn't planning on spending the bulk of my time at the beach, your kids will probably be very bored. And it's not just the beach area that is crowded, it's the whole town. And you can expect to see people walking around all over in bathing suits, which may not be something you are comfortable with. It's a classic "beach town" in that sense.

The Cape May Ferry is nice. But you don't need to stay at the beach to do that. And you'd probably have to drive a bit to find a park to make a BBQ in

Also to be aware, I was there once on a solo vacation and while shopping in the gift shops and had a couple of encounters with different store owners /workers who clearly were not pleased an obviously religious Jew was there. I was polite and waited my turn very patiently so there was no reason for the attitude I got (which other customers didn't). That was just me in my long sleeves and skirt, can't imuagine they'd be happy to see a man or boys with a yarmulke.

Try Wildwood but almost everything was booked a while ago.

We enjoyed Cape May as a daytrip. We got there early and left after a barbecue dinner. I believe we hit most of the attractions in one day and had a blast!
