The Wildwoods' beaches are free – beach tags are not required.

The Wildwoods Boardwalk has more than 70,000 wooden planks and stretches for nearly 2 miles.

The Wildwoods beaches, unlike most beaches in the United States, have areas that grow in size each year.

A 220-foot long and 30-foot high mural called the Whaling Wall, painted by world renowned environmental artist Wyland, can be viewed at Garfield Avenue and the Boardwalk.

The Wildwoods' beaches have been:

Included in the Travel Channel's "America's Best Beaches" show
Chosen by Condé Naste Traveler magazine's "Best Sports Beach"
Listed among the top most popular beaches by Byways Magazine
Chosen as number 1 in "Top 10 Family Beaches" by New Jersey Star Ledger
Listed in "Top 10 Singles Beaches" by New Jersey Star Ledger
Chosen "One of the Best" by Courier-Post readers.

The Wildwoods have the largest collection of mid-century commercial architecture in the United States, now labeled "Doo Wop." Visitors can learn about the colorful and whimsical themed properties on a trolley tour each summer Tuesday and Thursday.

Wildwood is home to the National Marbles Hall of Fame, housed in the Boyer Museum at 3907 Pacific Avenue. Memorabilia from 77 years of the National Marbles Tournament is displayed.

Ringer Stadium is on the beach at Wildwood Avenue. Ten square concrete platforms are permanently imbedded in the sand. The National Marbles Tournament is held here each June.

The Wildwoods have been called the Mecca of the kiting world. The Wildwoods International Kite Festival, held each Memorial Day Weekend, brings world-renowned kite flyers and makers. The world's largest and smallest kites have both appeared here.

The only Revolutionary War battle fought in Cape May County was on Sunset Lake in Wildwood Crest. The U.S. Brigantine Nancy and British warships skirmished here in the Battle of Turtlegut.
