In the Wildwoods – Wildwood, Wildwood Crest and North Wildwood – day or night, there’s always something to see and do. On our legendary boardwalk alone, there are three amusement piers featuring over 100 rides and attractions – including world-class roller coasters and three beachfront waterparks. Elsewhere on the island, there’s also jet skiing, parasailing, wave running, surfing and speedboat rentals. At night, Wildwood comes alive with grown-up fun. Relax with a few friends at one of the Wildwood’s many dance clubs, Irish pubs, lounges, sports bars or hot spots.
