route advice southern jersey shore to ocean city md

Looking for some thoughts on traveling from Tuckerton NJ to Ocean City MD. I am trying to decide weather to take the cape may Lewis ferry or go around and take the Delaware Memorial Bridge. I will be towing a 29' tt. The price is about $185 round trip.

Took the ferry a few years ago during a storm and my wife swore she would never do that again!

Google maps shows ferry is less mileage but actually takes you more time. (15 minutes)

Done both. Ferry is a very relaxing trip. Yes, you pay the fare. The highway route is traffic and congestion. Major construction at I-95 and Del Rt. 1/13 at Christiana. My vote would be the ferry. Sit back and enjoy the view. You'll feel more rested when you pull in to OC. You didn't say when you are going. Nice time now in OC. Quiet, no lines in restaurants.

The major bottleneck at I 95 and Rt 1 has been completed and traffic flow is no longer restricted.

If you've never taken the ferry, it's an interesting and nice ride.
