While in Wildwood, there is always something to see and do, day and night, for young and old. The legendary boardwalk includes three amusement piers with over 100 rides and attractions featuring world-class roller coasters and beachfront waterparks. The main attraction here is Morey’s Piers. This seaside pier with rooftop bars, waterparks, amusement parks, restaurants, live music and keeps both kids and adults entertained. Other hotspots on the island offer jet skiing, parasailing, wave running, surfing, and speedboat rentals. At night, Wildwood becomes the place for adult fun with dance clubs, Irish pubs, lounges, and sports bars.
When you get to Cape May which yes, is technically on the Jersey Shore, you’ll find it’s the antithesis of most things Wildwood. Instead of night clubs and amusement piers, you’ll find a famous lighthouse and Victorian mansions. Cape May’s rich history is evident in this Victorian architecture. It includes award-winning beaches that draw in visitors from around the world. If you want a break from the beach, head to the Cape May County Park & Zoo. Or check out The Cape May Lighthouse, built in 1859 that offers beautiful beach views from the 157ft tower.
