Although it was once one of the best kept secrets in New Jersey, the beach town of North Wildwood is now one of the most popular spots in the state during the summer months. The beautiful white sand and blue waters, delicious seafood restaurants, and friendly locals have brought about a strong contingent of people who return year after year. While you are here, hit the shops at one of the upscale boutiques on Park Boulevard, enjoy fine dining at the restaurants along Atlantic Avenue, or head to the boardwalk for the popular bars and clubs in town.
Here are just a few of the attractions and activities that this beach town has to offer:
-Historic Town Hall: Located in the center of town, the unique architecture and brightly lit signs make this building a popular standout attraction.
-Go to the Waterpark: There are four water parks which are in and around North Wildwood, each offering a fun series of rides and attractions.
-Go to the Beach: The Inlet and Diamond Beach are just two of the hugely popular beaches in town where the locals spend their weekends.
-Cape May Zoo: This zoo features several trails, a playground, and more than 200 different species of animals that can be observed.
Don't let the small town charm of North Wildwood fool you. Despite its size, there are still plenty of events and festivals to enjoy here, particularly during the summer months. Enjoy the games and festivities held during Irish Weekend in September, or find major bargains at street vendor stalls during Memorial Day weekend. You can also kick off your weekend by watching the fireworks displays on the beach, which are held every Friday night during the summer months.
Get the most out of your time in North Wildwood by staying in a vacation rental. Whether you're looking for a condo just steps from the beach, or a charming home in one of the more secluded parts of town, there's a property available that will meet all of your needs.
If you're looking for other attractions during your stay, Wildwood is a great spot to use as a base for exploring the rest of the region. The glitz and glamour of Atlantic City is only an hour away by car, and the metropolis of New York City is just a 90 minute drive away.
