The Wildwoods, NJ – May 4, 2022 – As the weather warms up, city-goers are looking to escape the crowds and seek rejuvenation in the serene beaches and outdoor life of the New Jersey Shore. The Wildwoods are the most-visited vacation destination at the Jersey Shore and offer the perfect backdrop to the adventurous and relaxing getaways of outdoor-oriented travelers.
Many travelers are still hesitant to vacation in larger cities. Instead, they’re looking for a more intimate vacation experience that features more open outdoor spaces with options to keep a physical distance from other vacationers. The Wildwoods, offering five miles of outdoor fun and excitement, serves as the perfect shore destination for any traveler looking to escape the cities and enjoy the great outdoors!
The Wildwoods have endless opportunities for adventurers to get outdoor and enjoy the fresh air, from sunbathing on its spacious FREE beaches to enjoying numerous water sports and activities; to leisurely bike riding on the Boardwalk and throughout the island and much more.
In search of some beach and quiet? Soak up the sun and enjoy the calming effects of ‘Beach Therapy’ on the Wildwoods’ FREE and spacious beaches. The beaches are the ideal location to clear the mind, escape the chaos and crowds, and recharge in the fresh salt air, away from all the hustle and bustle of large cities. Relaxation is a must on the Wildwoods beaches; but if you’re looking for something with a little more adventure, take part in the many beach and watersport activities available. With boating, jet skiing, kayaking, and more, the open water in the Wildwoods serves as the perfect spot for rejuvenation and relaxation.
Fishing and crabbing is another favored seashore pastime, and is a great way to have some outdoor fun and enjoy the island environment. A fishing pier on the Intracoastal Waterway – known locally as “the back bay” – at Sweetbriar Road in Wildwood Crest is a popular fishing spot for island natives and visitors alike; and there are plenty of beaches along Hereford Inlet in North Wildwood where fishing enthusiasts gather to surf fish – with plenty of room to spread out.
The Wildwoods are also home to a smooth and inviting bike route that allows visitors looking to get outdoors and get some exercise while biking, skating and walking; all while taking in the Wildwoods’ beautiful scenery. The bike route spans a majority of the island’s perimeter, taking visitors around the entire island – through the island’s Doo-Wop district, on the famous Boardwalk, on bike paths alongside the beautiful beaches, and past the historic 135-year-old Hereford Inlet Lighthouse. The Wildwoods have coined the phrase ‘bikeability’ to capture all of the amazing biking opportunities across the island. And don’t worry if you didn’t pack your bike for the trip – the Wildwoods have many bike rental shops spread throughout the island that rent out all kinds of bikes for fair prices.
If an escape to nature is what you’re looking for, the Wildwoods have just what you need. Wildlife is abundant in the Wildwoods, and nature-lovers can witness shore birds and fish as well as lots of other local marine life. Witness shore birds like the black skimmer, piping plover, swallow, osprey and peregrine falcon in their natural habitats, and see the local marine ecosystem in the Wildwoods bays and marshes.
Just a short drive outside of the Wildwoods, there are even more opportunities to explore and reconnect with nature. The marshy wetlands located between Wildwood and the mainland are favorite crabbing spots. Those looking to catch their evening crab feast are frequently spotted along the wetlands area entering the island; at street ends; or on docks along the back bay. Nearby, Cape May Point is another favorite, full of local wildlife and nature walks. Additionally, the Cape May County Park and Zoo is just a short drive outside of the Wildwoods, for anyone wanting to see some not-so-local wildlife.
