    "A visit to Wildwood, New Jersey, feels a bit like stepping back in time. Many of the area’s motels were built during the doo-wop era of the 1950s and ‘60s, and the Boardwalk’s carnival games, frozen custard stands, and kitschy souvenir shops sprinkle the two-mile stretch with nostalgic flavor," says TripAdvisor.
