Wildwood
A visit to Wildwood, New Jersey, feels a bit like stepping back in time. Many of the area’s motels were built during the doo-wop era of the 1950s and ‘60s, and the Boardwalk’s carnival games, frozen custard stands, and kitschy souvenir shops sprinkle the two-mile stretch with nostalgic flavour. Beachside amusement parks, mini golf courses, pier fishing, and water sports are fun for all ages, and Wildwood’s bars, pubs, and clubs pulse with the vibe of summer fun.

Nags Head

Whether your favourite beach activity be lying back and enjoying the summer sun, preparing your own family picnic to enjoy on the beach, or fishing for the various local species from one of the two fishing piers, you will find it all available on your holiday doorstep. Boat trips are also readily available in the area, either purely for pleasure cruising or for fishing.You may wish to enjoy the spectacular views afforded by the large sand dune that is Jockey’s Ridge. Those interested in history may wish to go along to the Wright Brothers’ Visitor Centre, or the Bodie Island Lighthouse and the former keeper’s house, the latter now a museum. Taking the family on one of the nature trails will allow them to see everything from dolphins to local birds of prey in their natural environment, while the more energetic have the option of hiring bicycles to take in the beautiful countryside in a very effective fashion.
