Wildwood is a resort city on the New Jersey Shore, north of Cape May. It sits on a barrier island known for its wide, sandy beaches. It is made up of Wildwood, West Wildwood, North Wildwood and Wildwood Crest to the south. I enjoyed my first visit, which included trying some of the fun restaurants, walking the famous boardwalk and photographing some of the old vintage motels from the 1950’s and 60’s.
According to the Washington Post, Wildwood was “once known as Little Las Vegas, the town’s claims to fame include Bill Haley & His Comets performing “Rock Around the Clock” live for the first time in 1954 and Chubby Checker introducing “The Twist” at the Rainbow Club, a ’60’s hot spot.”
