Oh those Wildwood days...
Famous for its free, wide, white, sandy beaches and world class boardwalk, "Wildwood by the Sea" has been the number one fun-filled family vacation destination for many generations. The award winning Wildwood beaches are the widest on the Jersey Cape. Each day all summer long, tens of thousands of vacationers come to the Wildwood beaches to frolic in the sparkling clean water and pure white sand.
The boardwalk, built at the turn of the century, stretches along the beach for more than a mile and a half. A convention center, 4 incredible amusement piers, 2 movie theaters, hundreds of souvenir and novelty shops and a variety of restaurants, ethnic food stands and salt water taffy shops line this wooden walkway. Early morning boardwalk visitors can see the sun reflect like diamonds as it rises out of the sparkling blue sea. An early morning bike ride along the boards is a favorite way for many to start the day.
At night, the lights brighten the skyline and the boardwalk takes on a new look. The combination of the flashing neon, mixed with lively music, the spin of the game wheels and the enticing aromas coming from the open air eateries create a carnival-like atmosphere and an aura of excitement that is not soon forgotten. Wildwood is especially known for its seafood restaurants and some of the finest eating establishments on the east coast.
