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

sand. The boardwalk, built at the turn of the century,
stretches along the beach for more than a mile and a half.

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.

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.

enticing aromas coming from the open air eateries create
a carnival-like atmosphere , and an aura of excitement
that is not soon forgotten.
