Wildwood Boardwalk, Wildwood

4.3
#1 of 13 in Shopping in Cape May County
A relic of the Doo-Wop era of the 1950s and 1960s, Wildwood Boardwalk is lined with over 200 motels and restaurants. Large neon signs and space-age architecture give the boardwalk a Vegas-like vibe. The town residents number under 6,000, but during the tourist season the area swells to over 250,000 people. Enjoy a stroll up and down memory lane on the boardwalk and lounge in the sand near the retro motels. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Wildwood fast, fun, and easy.

  • LOVE this place! Super clean Beach, always something going on at the convention center. Tons of places to stay, plenty of stuff to keep the kids busy. Plenty of restaurants, rides on the boardwalk, great tourist destination. Looking to buy or sell your beach home or rent here? I can help!
  • One if the best boardwalk and beach in NJ for me and my family. I drive here a lot for day trips during summer. Love it...
  • Kids had fun. Always fun yet short lived time. $400 later (2hrs 😱no parent wants to say no on vacation) can we play more wish there was play packages for parents for kids for a longer experience. Like choices of season pass (for better prices its 2017 nj is almost in depression financially)or day pass pay one price you get these many tokens and free admission to this park or ;this pier or all you can ride 3hrs for $20. ( not every parent has$400 to spend)
  • My four star rating is for when it is still light out. We love the different food shops (pizza, frozen custard, gyros, etc.) and the arcades (especially to play Skeeball). But at night the boards get more seedy and less appealing for families. Just the way things are.
  • I love looking in the little shops and so many places to eat. I like looking out at the ocean, watching the waves and feeling the ocean breezes. Before leaving it's a must to stop in James Saltwater Taffy store and buy a box, they are the best.
