Wildwood New Jersey

The Boardwalk by Day

July 2012

The Wildwoods sign
This Iconic Wildwoods sign marks an entrance to the Boardwalk and
is located at the end of Rio Grande avenue, the main road entrance onto the Wildwoods barrier island.
Wildwood, North Wildwood, and Wildwood Crest are refered to as the "Wildwoods".
As you can see, this is a popular spot to have your photo taken.

It's long, it's loud, it's bright and dazzling, it's flash and a tiny bit trashy.
It's the spectacular Wildwood boardwalk.
The Wildwood boardwalk is two miles long and is populated with shops and attractions of every type including amusement piers.
