Known for its two-mile boardwalk, Bill Haley and the Comets, Chubby Checker and the American Bandstand, the Wildwoods offers one of the largest stretches of free, public beaches in New Jersey. It also features the nation’s largest collection of doo wop architecture in the country, as well as three waterparks guaranteed to make this an exciting weekend getaway.
Pointing out all the attractions of the Jersey Shore is an exercise in the obvious. A bustling vacation destination since the 1800s, the Jersey Shore attracts millions of families, couples and young singles annually for its spectacular 127 miles of Atlantic Ocean shoreline. It’s Atlantic and Cape May counties that really draw in the locals though. Every summer, the Atlantic City Expressway and Garden State Parkway become bottlenecked with Pennsylvanians and New Yorkers heading toward beaches, bays, bars and boardwalks. From Sandy Hook to historic Cape May, “shoobies” go “down the shore” for sand, surf, sun and fun that only the Shore’s hotels, casinos, souvenir shops, restaurants, amusement parks and wet entertainment can deliver.
