The Wildwoods is comprised of 3 distinct towns, North Wildwood, Wildwood and Wildwood Crest. All have the unique character of the vintage Motels with the major concentration in the Doo Wop Motel District of Wildwood Crest. The Atlantic Ocean, well, it is an ocean with waves, surf, swell, a consistent sea breeze and water temps in the mid to upper 70’s this time of year. It is located 2-3 hours from 3 major airports – Philadelphia, Newark and Baltimore-Washington – all International.

Additionally we are planning on having our own Hobie RV Park right on the beach; front and center to all the attractions.
