Coming off a record-breaking 2022 tourism season, the Wildwoods launch new “Get Lost In The Woods…The Wildwoods!” tourism campaign
The Wildwoods, NJ – February 3, 2023 – The Wildwoods recently launched its new 2023 tourism ad campaign ‘Get Lost In The Woods… the Wildwoods!’ It highlights that the Wildwoods help you lose yourself in the best possible way, with everything vacationers could ever want in a safe, fun vacation experience – all on one 5-mile island.
The campaign features two all-new TV commercials showing highlights of everything there is to do in the Wildwoods, from relaxing on the Wildwoods’ spacious, clean, and FREE white-sandy beaches, to exploring the 38-block, world-famous boardwalk with three action-packed amusement piers featuring over 100 rides and attractions, three beachfront waterparks, great shopping, fun carnival games and flashing arcades, plus unique dining and nightlife experiences, watersports, fishing and boating, and more.
“The campaign definitely shows the versatility of the Wildwoods as a family vacation destination with everything you could ever want all on one five-mile island, so why go anywhere else?,” said Ben Rose, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for the Greater Wildwoods Tourism Improvement and Development Authority (GWTIDA). “The ‘Get Lost In The Woods’ campaign is the culmination of many months of research and planning and truly reflects the uniqueness of the Wildwoods as a family beach destination that can satisfy every member of the family,” he continued.
The Wildwoods also offer a wide assortment of accommodations to meet everyone’s needs and budget. With over 8,000 hotel-motel rooms, including beautiful beachfront hotels and motels and over 3,000 vacation rentals including condos, townhouses, and homes, the Wildwoods deliver a one-of-a-kind value for family vacations at the New Jersey shore. And with over 160 events and festivals throughout the year, most of them free, and an abundance of fun things to do, visitors will find something that excites and satisfies everyone in their family in the Wildwoods.
“Some shore destinations have quiet beaches, some have boardwalks, some have amusement rides and waterparks, some have great restaurants and nightlife, but the Wildwoods have it all, offering everything from quiet serenity to fun and excitement and everything in between,” said GWTIDA Executive Director John Siciliano.
The campaign also offers a call-to-action by giving away two 4-day, 3-night vacation getaways for a family of four with the ‘Win A Family Vacation in the Wildwoods!’ online contest, to help drive visitors to the www.WildwoodsNJ.com website.
