Reviewed 15 July 2012

My husband has a soft place in his heart for Wildwood, as he spent many a summer vacations here as a kid. I could take it or leave it. For me it's a teenagers beach, or a party animal and I am neither. The board walk is packed to gills in the summer, and if you're trying to navagate the traffic with small children and a stroller forget about it. I was terrified my children or me would be run over by the tram car, or unruly teens. In addition, the 1/4 trek across the hot sand to actually get anywhere near the water is daunting enough, add in 4 children, a husband, umbrella's, toys, cooler, blankets, towels, you get the picture, TOURTURE!! If you have to go, skip Wildwood, stay in Wildwood Creast, much nicer, quieter, and and way shorter trek to the water. Hit the main Wildwood board walk at night, if you dare, it does have the authentic east coast beach town feel, just not my cup of tea.

Big soft white and clean sand. Of all the New Jersey beaches this is my favorite. One word of warning is that they just started building an RV parking lot on the beach and that is going to make it uglier in the near future. If that is not stopped the beach will become an eyesore and might even become dirty from the RVs parking on the sand. I know the view from the boardwalk will not be as picture perfect when this is done.

The wildwood beach is know for its wide spanse.....a LONG walk to the water....but it is clean and nice and well guarded.....and there are spots in North wher you can be closer to the beach and there is always the beach shuttle @ Oak Ave to take you and all your stuff out to the water......Great beach!
