Street Art: Roxy's Welcome to Wildwood Wall Mural

We've been going down to the Jersey Shore several times a year for the past 30+ years. When it comes to my family's vacation time, we love spending it down at the Jersey Shore. Our favorite coastal towns in New Jersey are Ocean City, Avalon, Stone Harbor, Wildwood and Cape May. Yes, visiting south Jersey is the best in our book!

Every time we go down there we're on the lookout for new street art and outdoor wall murals that we haven't seen before. We are HUGE fans of street art and coastal wall murals and have photographed about 40 different ones located around New Jersey. You can find those posts right HERE on our blog.
Street Art: Roxy's Welcome to Wildwood Wall Mural in New Jersey

While on a recent trip down to Wildwood we stumbled upon the Roxy's Welcome to Wildwood outdoor wall mural. It's located on the side of the building at Roxy's Beer, Wine, and Liquor on 2600 Atlantic Avenue which is one of the main avenues on the island. It sits on the corner, so you should be able to see it quite easily.

The wall mural says Roxy's Welcome to Wildwood and features palm trees, an air plane, ocean waves, and of course a lot of liquor bottles and wordage related to alcohol. I checked out the mural pretty closely and I couldn't find an artist's signature on it. It's an "okay" wall mural but definitely could be a LOT better. Just average if you ask me.

Casual Dining at Hoss's Steak and Sea House Restaurant

Hoss's Steak and Sea House Restaurant in Hummlestown, Pennsylvania
Visiting the Harrisburg or Hershey area? Looking for a casual dining restaurant that's affordable and kid-friendly? If so, we recommend Hoss's Steak and Sea House Restaurant located in Hummelstown. If you're unfamiliar with the area, it's about a 10 minute drive from downtown Hershey and a 20 minute drive from downtown Harrisburg.

One of the things we really like about this restaurant is that they're rarely crowded. You can typically get seated as soon as you walk in the door and within minutes beverages are on your table with the wait-staff waiting to take your order. Next, they offer a lot of different menu items including: steaks, chicken, pasta dishes, fish, seafood, appetizers, hamburgers, and more.

They're one of a few restaurants that are left that still offer an all-you-can-eat salad bar that's complete with a variety of soups, salads, breads, and desserts. The salad bar is included with your entree meal price or you can order it separately. Plus, they keep their salad bar well-stocked and extremely clean.

We quickly placed our order and within 20 minutes it was on our table. The steaks that we ordered were perfectly grilled to our specifications and were delicious! Everything that we tried from the salad bar was good too! All hot food items were hot and all of the cold food items were cold. Our server was attentive and friendly. A perfect dining experience.

During our most recent visit to the Anglesea Pub we enjoyed some great food! My wife ordered chicken fingers & french fries. I enjoyed a Philly cheesesteak and french fries, along with a delicious Rootbeer Float cocktail. Our order was on our table within 20 minutes of placing it. Everything was delicious! Our waitress was very nice and friendly. Refills on beverages were offered in a timely manner and the food wasn't overly expensive.

They offer a full array of domestic and imported beer and wine. If you have small children traveling with you, you'll find a small kid's menu too. If you have any dietary concerns...let the wait staff know before placing your order. They're happy to adjust things to accommodate your needs.

If you're a sport's fan you'll find numerous TVs available streaming a variety of different type's of sports, games and teams. One thing that we really enjoyed about the pub is that it wasn't overly noisy or crowded when we were there. We sat in a booth and enjoyed a good meal. The atmosphere was great!
