No trip to the Jersey shore is complete without a stop on the boardwalk. Lots of places to eat, play arcade games & shop. I enjoy just sitting on a bench and people watching as there are tons of interesting characters.

The Starlux hotel provided no insights or help with map of area. Thought he might point out some of the places that were open. On Saturday thr Doowop Restaurant opened and a... More

If you want classic nostalgia mixed with salty summer air, bright neon lights, laughter, arcade games ringing in the background and food smells that make the mouth water....Wildwood boardwalk is the place for you. The boardwalk is so large that it caters to families, teens, adults, you name it. They have boardwalk food, nice family places and places you can... More

This boardwalk is what you expect from a beach boardwalk . It leads down to the beach and is lined with shops all the way down . There is something for everyone and eateries along the way . Its a long boardwalk and good for getting your daily walk in . We were there after Labor Day so it was... More

Not the nicest or cleanest of piers/boardwalks but still enjoyable. There are way too many birds/seagulls, but hopefully that was just my bad luck. That being said I will definitely come back in a few years. I enjoyed my time and the hotel prices (down the crest) are very affordable June and September.

This boardwalk was bustling with activity....even though it was in October. Lots of places were still open (although I know the popcorn place and the French Fry vendor both mentioned being done within the next week). the boardwalk is showing age and I'm sure will be maintained and ready for the next season. It has a great vibe.....I felt safe.....it... More

I love wildwood in general for its long and diverse Boardwalk, but the May and sept car shows are so much fun. We go every Sept! Although it's after season, the weekends are packed and hopping this weekend. Fun for families with all ages!

Love the wildwood boardwalk but it's getting really expensive. Took my 3 year old niece and dropped $75 on games and rides in a matter of 2 hours. And the tram car is now $3 one way. I remember when it was $0.50 to ride it. Prices are just getting way out of control.
