Wildwood vs Seaside Heights vs AC

A few guy friends and I are looking to head to Jersey Shore for a weekend this summer. We are all in the 21-25 age range and areprimarily looking for good nightlife (girls our age). Just wanted to get some opinions on which location would be best for that. Let me know if I'm not considering any other good options. Thank you in advance.

Belmar is smaller than those and is known for its group rentals, clubs and beach...mostly young people. It had extensive Sandy damage but is already working on repairs and is promising to be open for the summer. Seaside also was badly hit and I haven't heard what the prediction is for the summer

seaside was trashed by sandy. both ac and ww have plenty of nightlife

ac more upscale, casino crowds more expensive

ww more families with older teens, college crowds, more economical

Seaside more of the age group you are in. They will be up and running by Memorial day; Wildwood is more family orientated, Atlantic City, as mentiioned, upscale. Happy travels!

Seaside had extensive damage from Sandy but will be mostly up and ready for the Summer. I would head there as opposed to Wildwood or AC. Don't get me wrong, Wildwood is nicer then Seaside by a mile but it is much more family oriented. If your focus is the beach and boardwalk, head to Wildwood. If you are looking for Clubs, head to Seaside. AC is the most upscale but only if you stay in the Casinos. There isn't much going on the boardwalk and the beach is iffy. Remember, people go to AC for the casinos, not the town.
