Exit 98 - Hot shore spot off with Boardwalk, nightlife and right off the NJ Train line plus the quaint town of Point Pleasant Beach features many shops filled with original art, antiques malls, and excellent restaurants and pubs.
What makes this town special is that it boasts a large population of "year round" residents, so most downtown shops and businesses are open for all seasons.(Plus it is our hometown!) Many activities throughout the year including the September "Seafood Fest" and wonderful Christmas decorating and pageants. Convenient to other shore points: Sister City of Seaside Heights, Island Beach, Belmar Beach and Long Beach Island.
Free beach access to beautiful beaches, 2+ miles of Boardwalk with more amusements than Disneyland, CA (not a joke, it's true) and only minutes to Historic Cape May at the most Southern tip of New Jersey - there is something for everyone in Wildwood. New Convention Center on the Boardwalk opened May 2002 offers concerts, shows, conventions to various groups. This is a great place to visit if you want to experience the real "NJ Shore".
Located at the most Southern Tip of NJ, historic Cape May boasts miles of beautiful beaches. Famous for its historic homes, Bed & Breakfast Inns and its Jazz Festival, Cape May has been known as the place to experience the pure salt air making it a past health retreat for the rich and famous.
Convenient beaches right off Midway and Boardwalk with an abundance of family activities. More Northern NJ Beach than Central or Southern. You either love it or hate it. In either case, most people find it quite affordable. Newer Water Park also available for non-ocean goers
