Wild rides & whale watching on the Jersey Shore

Located in Cape May County, New Jersey, the shore town of Wildwood along the Atlantic Coast is one of the most popular summer getaways in the state. For locals, Wildwood is known as a place for families to have an unforgettable summer vacation, but the destination also boasts some historical landmarks and natural scenic viewpoints. The population hovers around 5,000 residents for much of the year, but busy weekends in the summer can see the total population skyrocket to a quarter of a million people at a time. Whether you're single and looking for some lively beach nightlife or you are planning a quiet family trip to the shore, Wildwood is a great choice for fun throughout the year.

Things to see and do in Wildwood

Wildwood's beaches

The biggest reason to visit Wildwood is the coastline, including the nearly two-mile boardwalk that stretches along the beach. All of the beaches in the area are free and public, which means you'll have plenty of selection when you visit. The Inlet, which is closer to the North Wildwood end, is a top spot for families who want to spread out and avoid the most crowded areas. Diamond Beach, nearer to the other end of the boardwalk, is a top pick for teens and young adults happy to be in the center of it all.

Major attractions in Wildwood

One of the biggest attractions in all of Wildwood is the afore-mentioned boardwalk that runs parallel to the Atlantic Ocean. It's here that you can play games, sip a drink at sunset, shop for souvenirs, or grab a meal with friends and family. The boardwalk is also home to an aquarium and a variety of roller coasters and thrill rides designed for a range of ages. Off the boardwalk, find museums and historic architecture from the 1950s, when Wildwood's reputation as a vacation spot first began. Other popular attractions include the nearby Cape May Zoo, the open-air 19th-century history museum called Cold Spring Village, the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse that was built in 1874, and the Wildwood Aviation Museum, which is packed with World War II-era aircraft.

Staying active in Wildwood

Although just reclining in the sand and listening to the waves can be the best way to pass the time in Wildwood, there's a lot more to do in this coastal New Jersey destination. To collect your own dinner, head to the bay to try out fishing or even crabbing. Animal lovers can set off on a boat tour to see the whales and dolphins, which are easy to spot between March and December. Other outdoor adventures you can add to your itinerary: parasailing, jet-skiing, sailing and surfing. Boat and board rentals are available from many Wildwood hotels, as well as from small shops along the coast.

Travel information

If you're planning to fly to Wildwood, your best bet is to arrive at the Atlantic City Airport (ACY), which is just 45 minutes away from the shore, or Philadelphia International Airport (PHL), which is two hours from the shore. Buses service a main station in Wildwood from cities throughout New Jersey, New York, Delaware and Pennsylvania. Once you've made it to Wildwood, you can park your car in one spot and rely on public transport or walking to get around. The area is safe for pedestrians, and most Wildwood hotels are within walking distance of the beaches and major attractions. Multiple taxi services, as well as an inexpensive tram car, can give your feet a break if you have farther to travel in town.

Best time of year to visit Wildwood

For the warm summers that Wildwood is known for, visiting between June and August is ideal. However, these months also bring big crowds that can increase the price of accommodation. Quieter months that see steady sunny skies are April, May, September and October, the so-called “shoulder season.” In the middle of winter, prices are at their lowest, but some attractions are closed, and the beach may be too cold for swimming. Vacationing in Wildwood is always exciting, and this unique city-by-the-sea truly has something for everyone.
