Wildwood, New Jersey is known for its sandy beaches and is considered one of the top beach destinations on the east coast. From spring through late autumn, Wildwood surges with tourists who have come to enjoy a boardwalk full of family-friendly entertainment including craft shows, parades, truck and motocross races, food and music festivals, sports tournaments and weekly fireworks.
The Wildwood Farmers Market is open every Saturday from May through August. The market features every healthy option possible, such as locally sourced produce, herbs, greenery, baked goods, and drinks.
George F. Boyer was Wildwood’s sole historian and the first president of the Wildwood Historical Society. His mission was to collect and preserve pieces that express Wildwood’s past, specifically of the lively Wildwood entertainment scene. The museum opened in 1963 and contains items such as photographs and memorabilia of a time when acts such as Tony Bennett and The Supremes played in various different Wildwood locations. The museum focuses on the 50s and 60s and provides a glimpse into the music and fashion that helped define American identity during that period.
