Sip & Savor the Flavors of Fall in the Wildwoods, NJ

The Wildwoods, NJ – October 7, 2019 – The autumn season (known as the Wildwoods’ ‘Second Season’) is well underway, and with less crowds, milder temperatures and lower seasonal hotel rates, there is no better time to explore and experience the Wildwoods.

The Wildwoods are home to unique restaurants and eateries, as well as popular wineries, breweries and distilleries. In the fall, these favored Wildwoods landmarks embrace the change of season by offering one-of-a-kind, autumn-inspired creations. Only in the Wildwoods can you enjoy a unique seasonal brew or wine while savoring the fresh catch of the day in the crisp autumn air.

The restaurant renaissance that started years ago in Cape May has spilled over into the Wildwoods, and a growing number of gourmet restaurants are now 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.

The ideal time is now to visit the area’s finest wineries, located just minutes from the famous five-mile island, as grape harvesting is at its peak. The Wildwoods are in the midst of this ever-burgeoning wine country, and the phenomenon is no coincidence either – the sandy soils along with Southern New Jersey’s unique mild climate make the area surrounding the Wildwoods an ideal environment for grape growing and wine making.

A quick tour of the vineyards surrounding the Wildwoods illustrates that New Jersey lives up to its moniker as, “The Garden State.” New Jersey’s southernmost region is an agricultural hub for wine cultivation. Rich farmland is home to acres of vineyards whose grapes patiently transform into award-winning, hand crafted fine wines. Wines from these local wineries are even served in many of the Wildwoods’ fine restaurants offering a great dining experience to a beautiful fall getaway.

Also nearby are breweries and distilleries, where taste testing, dining, shopping, and exploring beckon – all with minimal crowds and a calmer atmosphere, make for an ideal fall getaway.
