Wildwood is a popular south Jersey beach destination for families looking for a reasonably priced summer vacation with plenty to do.
The Wildwood's are a Jersey Shore treasure with free, wide, white, powdery sandy beaches, a world class boardwalk with amusement piers, restaurants, and an excellent variety of moderately priced hotels and motels, most of which are located on the beach.
The Wildwood's are popular with visitors mostly from the Philadelphia area, as well as New Jersey and New York City.
Wildwood also draws on it's "Doo Wop", 50's and 60's themed architecture, music and history of that era.
The beaches cannot be topped! This shore destination has one of the most beautiful beaches on the east coast. The sand is amazingly soft, powdery-white, and very wide with plenty of room to spread out and enjoy. It is also free --- a rarity with New Jersey beaches. The warm water lasts longer than the northern stretch of the Jersey Shore and offers an extended summer season that thrives until the end of September and begins to wind down in October.
During the spring, summer, and fall, The Wildwood's are host to a number of events including championship volleyball tournaments, monster truck races, concerts, movies on the beach, ethnic festivals, fireworks displays, crafts, and antique car shows.
The boardwalk, two miles or 38 blocks long, along the North Wildwood and Wildwood stretch of shore line, claims to have more rides than Disneyland.
