The boardwalk
The Wildwood boardwalk is famous for its multiple piers with many rides,two beachfront and beautiful water parks attractions, food and shops. It is a melting pot which attracts people from all walks of life.
If you have children with you they will love the rides on the boardwalk. There are multiple rides for toddlers and small children in the fronts of Mariners Landing and Moreys Pier. In the back are rides for older children and adults. Prices have gone up this year but the best deal is the wristband for $92 which allows one person to ride all the rides on all three piers for one day plus gives you a pass for both water parks which can be used on any day and can even be used the following season.

Sightseeing
The Wildwoods are all about making the kids ( and the kid in all of us) happy by going to the beach, splash pad, playgrounds and the boardwalk while Cape May offers more shopping, dining and sightseeing. It is a Victorian beach resort with more original Victorian homes in one town than in any other place in the U.S. The Washington street outdoor “mall” and the Beach ave promenade have many shops and restaurants which appeal to a variety of tastes. Cape May has legendary beach bars like Harry’s and the Rusty Nail and upscale restaurants like Peter Shields and Mayer’s Tavern. You can spend $$$$$ or just walk the streets near the Washington street mall and Congress Hall, looking at all of the incredible Victorian homes. Further to the north by about five blocks you will also find a large collection of homes from the 1920’s. We recommend you find a place to park then walk from there, don’t try to drive through town in summer, it is usually packed.

If you would like an easy ocean front walk that doesn’t involve dodging bicycles, try starting on the sea wall at 2nd and JFK in NW and walking all the way over to St.Demetris church. You will catch locals meeting for a chat and reading the legendary ( and free) Sun newspaper ( @wildwoodsunbythesea). You might even see the famous editor of that paper, Dorothy Kulisek, who loves to greet the sun and share her photos with us. You can watch the surfers at the beginning of the wall and the fishermen and women towards the end. There are also multiple dining options as you get closer to Anglesea, including the Star Diner.

Sunset beach is free and is the perfect place to watch the sun set! However it also has mini golf, a gift shop, a Gem Shop and a sandwich shop that has outdoor seating almost directly on the beach. Close by is a WWII lookout tower which you can climb for a small fee. You can also see the famous ( and mostly sunk) concrete ship and find “Cape May Diamonds “ both on the beach and in the Gem Shop.
