The Wildwoods’ world-famous boardwalk was once again named the #1 Beach Boardwalk for Families in the nation by FamilyVacationCritic.com.
This is the third year in a row that the Wildwoods have appeared in the #1 spot on this list, having been named #1 Beach Boardwalk in 2012 and 2013 as well.
The website, in reference to the Wildwoods Boardwalk, said, “We keep (the) Wildwoods on our list of favorite boardwalks because it’s just so family-friendly and our kids love it!” They went on to say that with “more than 100 rides and attractions available, as well as shopping and dining along the 2-mile boardwalk – what’s not to love?”
“It’s a great honor to be recognized year after year as the #1 Beach Boardwalk for Families in the nation,” said John Siciliano, executive director for the Greater Wildwoods Tourism Improvement and Development Authority (GWTIDA). “We owe this recognition to the hard work and determination of the hundreds of small business owners who bring their vision and innovation to the myriad of shops, attractions, arcades, games and eateries that together make the Wildwoods’ Boardwalk second to none. And we also owe our gratitude to the millions of families that come to enjoy all we have to offer—from the boardwalk and beach, to the great events, shopping, eateries and dining. Everyone at this destination works tirelessly in making the Wildwoods one of the country’s most popular family vacation destinations, and we are grateful that our work is paying off for our visitors.”
The Wildwoods’ Morey’s Amusement Piers were named in 2014 among the Top 10 Piers by Coastal Living Magazine. In 2013 the Wildwoods were also recognized as one of the Most Awesome Boardwalks in America by BudgetTravel.com; as the Favorite Shore Town by Delaware County Daily Times readers; as the Favorite Beach and Boardwalk by NJ.com readers; the Top Family-Friendly Beach Town by NerdWallet.com; and as One of America’s Top 10 U.S. Tourist Towns by families voting in FamilyFun magazine.
