The Shore Plaza just reopened this past spring after a devastating fire destroyed it several years ago. The new hotel is simply wonderful: all new, large rooms, and centrally located right in the middle of the boardwalk.
To really experience Wildwood, get one of the several rooms overlooking the Boardwalk. You'll have a great show (people-watching) without paying for the entertainment. The later it gets, the more fun it is to watch.
We'll be regulars here again, just as we were before the fire. We're so glad that it's back.
