In North Wildwood (the north part of the island) you will find a really laid-back atmosphere. You will find the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse, 2 miniature golf courses, an oceanfront free playground for the kids, plenty of space on the beach and if you have never walked the sea wall in North Wildwood, you really should! If you personally ask me, North Wildwood is the prettiest part of the entire island.
In Wildwood Crest you will find the Convention Center where they hold music concerts and other various attractions. You can hop on the world famous Tram that runs up and down the boardwalk and go from one end to the other end of the 2 mile boardwalk pretty quickly. Most of the Wildwood boardwalk action is not located in Wildwood Crest but in Wildwood itself.
There are a lot of things to see and do why visiting The Wildwoods in New Jersey so it's best to plan to stay for several days, so that you can take in all of the area's attractions and amusements. When it comes to beaches, all of the Wildwood beaches are beautiful, clean beaches that are FREE. That's right, no paid beach tags needed!
