For residents and vacationers alike, no matter what time of day or night, aromas fill their senses with thoughts of salt water taffy, funnel cakes, popcorn, suntan lotion, fresh breezes and all kinds of delicious delicacies.

     Wildwood is a family resort with plenty of activities to keep our visitors of all ages entertained.  We offer a wide variety of restaurants, amusement piers and water recreation of all sorts. 

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. 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, four incredible amusement piers, two 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.
