While some travelers seek out pristine white beaches for quiet and relaxation, others go to the beach for the boardwalk, carnival-like rides and an action-packed adventure. If you're of the later persuasion, then visiting the Wildwoods in New Jersey is a must do. The five-mile island is made up of three distinct municipalities: Wildwood, Wildwood Crest and North Wildwood – collectively known as The Wildwoods. Its famous two-mile boardwalk, replicated in Disneyland and Hershey Park, dates to the 1890s and was recently named one of the nation's Top Ten American Boardwalks by Sherman's Travel.

Wooden roller coasters, boardwalk arcades and doo-wop hotels make a stay at the Wildwoods in New Jersey a trip not just three hours away, but one that feels many years back in time. The Wildwoods is three contiguous beaches on the Jersey Shore: the quieter, family-oriented beaches of North Wildwood and Wildwood Crest and the city of Wildwood, with its famed two-mile boardwalk and amusement parks. While each area offers distinct activities and amenities, all three have a retro look and feel.
