I went on the DOO-WOP bus tour during the 60's weekend this past Oct.
We were pleasantly surprised when on board the bus there was a guy whose name
I think was Billy O.Apparently, he was an addition to the tour,and apparently he had been a member of a 60's Rock Band. His knowledge of DOO-WOP was really cool,
and he explained how DOO-WOP came to be,and also he explained how the song Rock Around The Clock became the Anthem for Rock And Roll. It was the highlight of the tour !!

Wildwood has been one of the most popular beach and boardwalk destinations on the east coast for a century. The resort is preserving its character in the Doo Wop Museum which celebrates the beautifully preserved and restored mid-century architecture and culture loved by generations of American's. Like its sister community, Cape May, The Wildwoods are a state recognized historic district.

Don't miss the photos of the more than 120 midcentury hotels, motels and commercial buildings--the largest collection in the United States according to the University of PA. Also, entire restored rooms from mid-century America and historic photos of the Wildwoods exciting past and present. A fun way to spend a morning or afternoon while on vacation on the Jersey Cape.

We lived just a few miles away but did nto know the Doo Wop Museum existed until a couple years ago. We loved it.
