Wildwood Days

When I was younger, my exposure to Wildwood was somewhat limited. We had the tradition of Easter Sunday on the boardwalk, as well as one or two visits in the summer when relatives were in town.  And, there is the legendary story of the nuns (including my aunt) on the Hunt’s Pier log flume during a thunder storm ;)

I attended Wildwood Catholic High School, where I met and later married my “Wildwood boy”. We continued the Easter tradition with our sons, and added trips to Morey’s water parks.

During the quieter months, we enjoy walking the length the boardwalk; and of course the boardwalk food.  A more recent tradition is opening day at Sam’s Pizza (yesterday).  Based on the crowds, others have the same tradition. 

I still can’t say I’m a fan of the crazy atmosphere- it’s sensory overload to me!  But I understand the attraction and appreciate that it’s nearby.

    I remember my Wildwood days when I was younger. Staying at the American Inn, doing handstands in the pool, eating samples of free fudge, “watch the train cars, please”, playing the games. Such fun times and great memories.

    Your comment made me smile. Like so many others, we are fortunate to have fun shore memories!

    My fondness of the shore started with the seasonal rentals my friends and I shared in Sea Isle, along with our annual excursion to the water park and boardwalk in Wildwood.

    So many of my buyers and tenants refer to their “group rental days” during their college years. That sealed their love of the shore. Now they are back with their own family to continue the tradition (with less beer!)
