Those in need of a little self-care can kick back in their beach chairs or stretch out on their towels to reap the benefits of a relaxing day at the beach; and if you’re looking for something a little more active, the Wildwoods are the perfect spot for a run along the shoreline, yoga on the warm sand, or a swim in the ocean.

A getaway to the Wildwoods isn’t complete without a visit to the world-famous Wildwoods Boardwalk. Overlooking the pristine beaches of the Wildwoods, the Wildwoods Boardwalk offers a unique experience for anyone visiting New Jersey.

You can also ride your bike along the Wildwoods streets and downtown and to the back bays, with special “bike only” lanes. Don’t have room to pack your bikes on vacation? There are plenty of bike rentals shops located along the bike paths, on the Boardwalk and throughout town where you can rent a bike by the hour for a nominal fee.
