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.

Walking down the board walk each couple of block simply repeats. Novelty, fudge and arcade, repeat. The items are all made in China or Pakistan yet are typical touristy items one would expect at a tourist town. I guess for a foreign visitor it is a great American experience but for savy locals it is probably like living near Times... More

My family has been enjoying the Wildwood boardwalk for years. There is no other boardwalk that can compare. It is nearly 2 miles in length, and has many, many attractions, great restaurants and is excellent for family time. There is a tram car that runs the length of the boardwalk for convenience of getting around and taking back to your... More

The Wildwood Boardwalk is the BEST EVER i have been coming to this boardwalk for almost 40yrs + not to give my age away,but this is definitely a family tradition and will continue to be for as long as we can walk the boards,but even after that or when we can't walk all the way or just want to take...

We walked the boardwalk on Friday night and I have to say it was so much nicer to walk it off-season then when we were there during the summer season. During the season, I felt like there were too many large groups of very rowdy kids who I thought were very intimidating. I have always loved the Wildwood boardwalk but... More

To start off I must say that coming from New York city it was a LLLOONG ride there. Overall it was worth it. My friend and I took a road trip to Wildwood on July 4th. The ride was very nice, we watch the beautiful small, cozy homes in the side of the roads. Also if you decide to take... More

Wildwood's boardwalk is the best! The rides are fantastic, lots for little ones, and for teens and adults. Food choices are boardwalk mainstays - pizza, fries, hot dogs, funnel cakes, water ice, ice cream, but there are restaurants as well where you can get a full dinner. Tons of tshirt and variety shops, shoes, handbags, souvenirs, and fudge (Fudge Kitchen... More

There's nothing like a boardwalk along the Jersey Shore. I've been on several of them. Maryland can't duplicate it, South Carolina, Florida and Delaware all have tried without success. New Jersey wins this honor hands down and Wildwood's boardwalk reminds me of everything New Jersey. The music that "Mister Softee" plays reminds of the old ice cream trucks that would... More
