Wildwood
A visit to Wildwood, New Jersey, feels a bit like stepping back in time. Many of the area’s motels were built during the doo-wop era of the 1950s and ‘60s, and the Boardwalk’s carnival games, frozen custard stands, and kitschy souvenir shops sprinkle the two-mile stretch with nostalgic flavor. Beachside amusement parks, mini golf courses, pier fishing, and water sports are fun for all ages, and Wildwood’s bars, pubs, and clubs pulse with the vibe of summer fun.
