Wildwood, also known as The Wildwoods because there are four relatively distinct areas, is primarily known as a beach resort area – some people live there year-round, of course, but the vast majority of the people who spend any time there are vacationers who come during the summer. And with an abundance of cheap hotels in Wildwood which are not only great places to stay but something of an attraction in and of themselves, you should have no trouble finding a room.
There are reportedly more than 200 motels, sometimes called “Doo-Wop” motels, that are in Wildwood. The name comes from the fact that they were built during the Doo-Wop era of the 50s and 60s, and are architecturally distinctive because of that. So even if your choice for cheap hotels in Wildwood is not one of these famoud Doo-Wop motels, you should make a point of checking them out anyway – they are unique to the town, so why not?
The beach in Wildwood is certainly one of the star attractions, even if sunning yourself is not high on your vacation priority list. You can still enjoy the sand and the surf through the many water sports on offer, such as jet-skiing, surfing, fishing, and parasailing. This is one of those beachfront towns with a bustling boardwalk – the one in Wildwood is nearly two miles long. And in addition to the beach and boardwalk, there are three water parks in town and a few piers that are basically amusement parks on the beach. This is family fun in the extreme, so it is no surprise that the population of Wildwood increases so dramatically every summer.
