“You can't go wrong taking the little ones AND big ones for some coasters, rides, water slides and some of the best pizza around! ”

“The restaurant is very boisterous, but the food is definitely worth the hustle and tussle. The portions are huge and the prices are good too. You could easily transition from shopping on the same block to eating a "uniquely American meal with upscale atmosphere." There are vegan and vegetarian options also! They have live music and entertainment inside, and a balcony outside to get the most of those summer nights.”

“The Famous Wildwood Boardwalk begins at our street, perfect starting place so you don't miss a thing! Make sure you pick up a discounted book of Tram Car tickets (they never expire) so you never have to drive to the boardwalk again! ”

“Duffers has the most unbelievable ice cream! It has an old time carnival feel...FUN & DELICIOUS. The food is great too, it’s a smaller place and family friendly. They have a little put-put golf corse and arcade for Lil guys. Have fun...parking is a challenge, try to approach from Wildwood Crest side and grab a spot on the street.”
