“Fun x3”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2013

I've been coming here for a few years every Sept. for the NJ State Firemen's Convention. It's off-season, but the boardwalk is still hoppin' and many of the stores offer discounts on the clothing.. some you can even haggle with. Most of the rides are still open as well, but be warned, bring money... lots of it if you're going to ride the rides.
During the early morning hours, the Boardwalk is an excellent place to take a walk or jog or even grab a cup of coffee and a donut and watch the sun rise.

“Wildwood's Boardwalk.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

It is so much fun! We take the tram car from Montiego Bay Hotel to the end and then walk back. We hit all the piers and get our full of the rides. I like the idea of the credit type cards they use now. Plus did you know you can get a pass for the tram, and save money? I walked all the way back this swummer with my 3 year old grandson. The other two kids stayed with their mom and dad and went on big kid rides. We were out till midnight.

“Sights and sounds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

Wonderful beach vacations every time here although it can't rival its southern counterparts. Quite similar to Atl. City but more family- oriented. Many amusements & rides on the piers and numerous eating possibilities. Hard-to-beat french fries. you haven't had them until you try some of the many different ones offered. An enjoyable experience for any age bracket. Great time but seasonally prohibited. Don't forget to watch for the tram car, PLEASE!

“Summer Nights On The Jersey Shore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

First time in Wildwood and obviously, the Boardwalk is the main attraction besides the beach. Well I know people hate the repetitive and cheesy t-shirt shops that line the boardwalk. And the greasy food and the tram car but hey, this is the boardwalk....not Rodeo Drive! We walked the boardwalk every night and we had a great time people watching, eating ice cream, Curley's Fries, Morey's Piers. It was really like all the many songs and stories you hear and read about the Jersey Shore! The kids loved it and enjoyed the atmosphere. Friday nights there are fireworks which are nice and last 10 - 15 minutes. What I hate are people who expect top-notch shopping and 5-star dining on the Boardwalk for little money. Sorry, but you want that, go to Disney's 5-star resorts or Atlantis in the Bahamas. I have been to all of them and each have their individual pros and cons. If you want great shopping, hop in the car and drive 50 minutes to Atlantic City like we did!

Wildwood's Boardwalk was enjoyable and easy-going. Basically, it came as advertised. As for the beach, I personally prefer the turquoise waters of the Caribbean where you can see the bottom. I guess it is a fear of what lurks beneath...lol. The beach itself is HUGE. And It is very clean. They keep the shore very clean and I really enjoyed the early morning walks on the silk sand. We will return to Wildwood.
