The beauty of the Wildwoods is meant to be shared – whether that be with a significant other, the whole family, or shared on social media. The Wildwoods have countless photo opportunities, with splendid sprawling beaches, beautiful artistic murals, and natural beauty unmatched on the Jersey Shore.

One of the most spectacular ways to enjoy the natural beauty of the Wildwoods is taking advantage of the destination’s ‘bikeability.’ The Wildwoods have coined the term ‘bikeability’ to capture all of the amazing biking opportunities across the island. A bike route runs nearly the entire length of the five-mile island, starting at the southern end of the island in Wildwood Crest on the Dunes Bike Path; up onto the Wildwoods Boardwalk for a 2.5-mile ride to take in the sights of the shore; then onto the North Wildwood Mulberry Bike Path and on to the North Wildwood Sea Wall. There’s also special ‘bikes only’ lanes dedicated to cyclists in North Wildwood along some of its major thoroughfares and along the back bays.
The Wildwoods also offer the largest collection of mid-20th century architecture in the country, known as Doo Wop Architecture. Take a self-guided tour on foot or by car around the island to see, up close and personal, the bright neon signs, vibrant architecture and colorful motel names which make up the Doo Wop ambiance for which the Wildwoods are famous.
The restaurant renaissance that started years ago in nearby Cape May has spilled over into the Wildwoods, and a growing number of gourmet restaurants are located throughout the five-mile island, each of them garnering superb reviews from critics and patrons alike. The Wildwoods’ upscale restaurants offer memorable surroundings, remarkable cuisine and attentive service for a perfect evening touched with romance, candlelight and delectable food. Outdoor dining overlooking the ocean, the bay or the inland waterway is another unique way to enjoy dining in the Wildwoods. With amazing food and signature drinks, cool breezes, a phenomenal view and great live music to top it off, there’s nothing like it. The backdrop is the evening sunset on the bay while boats slowly glide past the vibrant streaks of color in the evening sky.
Most restaurants throughout the island offer a full selection of cocktails, craft beers and wines. Wine connoisseurs will find wine lists that reflect a wide selection of vineyards and vintages – including some excellent New Jersey-grown choices from area vineyards. A few restaurants even permit guests to bring their own choice of wines to enjoy with dinner.
If cold brews, craft beer and growlers are your thing, then we’ve got a brewery for you. Located in the heart of Wildwood, MudHen Brewing Company is the ideal location for vacationers to sip craft artisan brews only found on the five-mile island. If you have a love for the distilling process, or for the products the distilleries produce, then hop over to the Lazy Eye Distillery right on Spicer Avenue in Wildwood. Try a regionally produced vodka, gin or rum that you won’t find anywhere else other than the Jersey shore.
Tucked away on the bayside of Wildwood Crest, Sunset Lake is aptly named for its picturesque sunsets.

Sunset Lake also has beautiful parks to stroll and view the spectacular sunsets.
