A “WILD” ADVENTURE!!

A “WILD” ADVENTURE!!

As you embark on a road trip down south on the Garden State Parkway, there are two exits that present multiple hidden gems within a mega-resort area. If you turn off of either Exits 6 or 4, you are led to a day, week, or longer of epic fun and enjoyment. So let’s step out of your vehicles and bask in the area of Wildwood, New Jersey!

AWESOME LODGING LOCATION
While Wildwood is filled with multiple choices for lodging, there is one in particular that deserves attention, as it is located right in front of Morey’s Pier on 26th Avenue and free beach: The Island Breeze Motel. This motel has a lot of charm along with a beautiful pool, grills and incredible hospitality by owner Mark. When you step out of the Island Breeze, you are literally right in front of the boardwalk and famous beach. For all of you animal lovers out there, the Island Breeze is pet-friendly and very close to an adorable fenced-in dog park right on the beach! Oh, and don’t forget to get your picture taken on the humongous rainbow-colored Adirondack Chair near the park.

THE BOARDWALK

“Watch the Tram Car, please” is Wildwood’s acclaimed slogan. As the boardwalk is more than 2 miles, you can hop on a tram car to ride the length or stop off wherever you would like (there is a small fee to ride it). You will always know when one is right behind you! If you choose to walk, you are surrounded by delicious aromas emanating from pretzel bun breakfast sandwiches, funnel cake, crab fries from Chickie’s and Pete’s, and a hot dog stand with close to thirty toppings available. If you are in the mood for shopping, please stop in the Winterwood Christmas Shop, which is an experience in itself (they have a huge sister store in Cape May). There are plenty of other shops to wander around in and buy a souvenir or two.
Now for the amusements—for those who may not be aware, one of the hidden gems is a large log flume ride on Morey’s Pier. You can enjoy being a spectator by the last log drop and become enveloped in the residual wave water (perfect for those hot, soupy days). For the more daring, there is a rollercoaster called the Noreaster, which is aptly named, as there are frequent twists and turns throughout. And….there is a waterpark right along with the rides where you can go tubing or just relax and chill in a beach chair watching the sights. If you want to wet your whistle, check out the Stubborn Brothers Beach Bar past the flume and coaster. There are seats placed right in front of the beach to take in more beautiful views.

THE SILVER BULLET

There are not enough words to describe how incredible this gem is. The Silver Bullet is a speedboat ride that also includes dolphin-watching. For a very modest fee (and there is a coupon available), you receive the thrill of a lifetime. From the time you arrive and wait for the tour to begin, you are enthusiastically greeted by their mascot “Bubbles” the Dolphin. Bubbles will pose for pictures with you and love’s to do it! When you enter the awesomely-decorated speedboat, you have your choice of where to sit, and the strongest recommendation is to sit in the back if you want to get soaked. Captain John has three of his four tours where he performs what he affectionately calls the “log flume.” At one point in the tour, the Captain drives the Silver Bullet to the speed where the water just flows over you and instant exhilaration takes over. Pods of dolphins are around and love to join in the tour by diving in and out of the ocean all around the boat. You are able to purchase snacks, beverages, and souvenirs (children and adults). The whole experience is over 90 minutes and is beyond worth it!

CULINARY DELIGHTS

Wildwood is filled with delicious treats for foodies of all types. From boardwalk-style eats (some were previously mentioned) to fine dining, you will certainly not go hungry or be dissatisfied. Located near the Silver Bullet are two wonderful seafood restaurants named Urie’s and the Boathouse. For Urie’s, the recommendation is their monkfish scampi, and for the Boathouse, the recommendation is the seafood mac and cheese. If you are craving meat, specifically ribs, please check out the Surfing Pig (which is a favorite of the Island Breeze). If you are into a buffet style dinner, there is nothing better than the Red Oak Restaurant (absolutely mammoth selection).

Wildwood is epic for so many reasons. The vibe is full of energy. Families abound and you are surrounded by laughter and entertainment. You are immediately drawn in and captivated by the atmosphere. You will never be the same. Discover the hidden gems within this jewel of a town!
