Vacation under the radar while still clocking in online – a new ‘working vacation’ phenomenon known as a ‘hush trip’
The Wildwoods, NJ – March 2, 2023 – With spring right around the corner, and working remotely a more common option for many, the Wildwoods offer the perfect opportunity for visitors to vacation under the radar while still clocking in online – a new ‘working vacation’ phenomenon known as a ‘hush trip’.
Hush trips are becoming increasingly popular as people who work remotely seek a change of scenery for their workspace. Travelling to the New Jersey shore has always been a staple of summer vacations, but with the popularity of remotely working, it is easier and more inviting than ever for people to take discrete ‘hush trips’ to the Wildwoods and bring their work along.

The fun Doo Wop style in the Wildwoods also creates a great backdrop – and there’s no shortage of cool, mid-century themed hotels/motels, banks, convenience stores and other area businesses that have embraced the architectural style of the 1950s and 1960s ‘known as “Doo Wop” – throughout the five-mile island. Plastic palm trees tower over kidney shaped pools, jutted roof angles, and wrought iron balconies, and whimsical names and flamboyant themes give these similarly styled buildings individual character. Vivid imagery and vibrant aqua, oranges, and pinks bombard the eye of the motoring public, as bright neon signs beckon to travelers, each blatantly attempting to outdo their neighbor.
