The Wildwoods: A Valued Family Destination
What do you get when you combine one-of-a-kind value, tons of free events and a Boardwalk and Beach with something for everyone and a family friendly atmosphere second-to-none?
It’s the Wildwoods – one of the best value vacation destinations in all of New Jersey. With more than 180 free annual events, a five-mile stretch of award-winning, no-fee beautiful, white-sand beaches and a two-mile Boardwalk renowned for its vast array of amusements, shops and eateries, the Wildwoods offer a Jersey Shore experience sure to create lifelong memories and beckon visitors back, year after year.
Don’t miss Morey’s Piers that feature two unique beachfront waterparks: Ocean Oasis Waterpark and Beach Club where guests can rent cabanas and enjoy a massage and other spa services and there’s the exciting Raging Waters Waterpark.
The spaciously wide and sparkling clean Wildwoods’ beaches stretch for five miles across the four towns that make up the Wildwoods.
They are the perfect spot for swimming, soaking up the sun and relaxing on a hot summer day. For those looking for some adventure, the Wildwoods’ beaches also serve as an ideal location for surfing, boogie boarding, power boating, jet skiing, sailing, kayaking and whale watching.
The famous Wildwoods Boardwalk offers a unique experience for anyone vacationing in New Jersey. Famous for being one of the liveliest stretches of wood on the East Coast, the Boardwalk offers a pure sensory overload to visitors, with spectacular amusement piers, world-class roller coasters, wet and wild waterparks, carnival-style midway games, flashing arcades and a myriad of retail shops and eateries (more than the Mall of America).
In addition to its beautiful beaches and Boardwalk, the Wildwoods also host more than 180 events and festivals throughout the year, offering a little something for everyone – and most of them are free. Enjoy a fun-filled festival or event almost every weekend throughout the spring, summer and fall.
Don’t miss the free Italian and Irish festivals, where guests can enjoy a weekend of food, live music, entertainment, crafts, dancing and heritage. Barbeque connoisseurs and music enthusiasts can enjoy the best of both worlds during the annual New Jersey State Barbeque Championship and Anglesea Blues Festival.
The Wildwoods also host two spectacular Rock ‘n Roll events. The Fabulous '50s Celebration, held in the fall and the Sensational '60s Weekend, held in spring feature dance parties, classic car shows, an all-day street fair, live music and entertainment from the respective decade.
The Wildwoods also host a wide array of other events throughout the year including Thunder in the Sand Pro/Am Motocross Races, Monster Truck Races on the beach and many, many more.
