All About Wildwood Crest
The small seaside community of Wildwood Crest sits on the New Jersey coast at the mouth of Delaware Bay, sandwiched between Sunset Lake and the Atlantic. This Ocean City borough is known for its more than three continuous miles of beach and its proximity to the neighboring Wildwood and North Wildwood communities — collectively referred to as the Wildwoods — with their beachfront water parks, amusement piers, and thriving nightlife.
Wildwood Crest is the most relaxed and low-key of the three towns. Beachgoers laze on the soft sandy shores or play volleyball as sailboats drift against the horizon, and the sun sets in a fiery orange blaze over the appropriately named Sunset Lake on the western side of town. For a broader array of cultural offerings, Atlantic City is less than an hour north, featuring nightclubs, live music venues, and sporting events.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Wildwood Crest?
Weather conditions vary drastically between seasons in Wildwood Crest. Summers are pleasant, with warm temperatures for enjoying the beaches and water activities, with a slight increase in rain, particularly during the latter half of the season. June through September are popular times if you’re looking to book rentals in Wildwood Crest, thanks to the warm weather, sunny days, and abundance of events, including a three-day beachside concert series with internationally known country music acts performing on several stages. Winter sees moderate levels of rain and a big drop in temperature, with conditions often approaching freezing and occasionally dipping below it.
What are the top things to do in Wildwood Crest?
This open-air beachside pavilion has several acres of green space and picnic areas for community use. You can enjoy the grassy fields while watching sailboats and fishing charters skim the horizon and beachgoers frolic below. A handful of events are staged here throughout the year, like the near-weekly free Wildwood Crest Summer Music Series from May to September.
Spanning 38 blocks, the Wildwoods Boardwalk is the town’s epicenter of fun, packed with souvenir shops, fried-food shacks, and a seaside amusement park with more than 100 rides. Lights, music, and fun abound under the neon glow of this historic boardwalk that was established in the late 19th century.
Cape May National Wildlife Refuge
This five-mile stretch of protected shoreline along the Delaware Bay is home to a unique and diverse array of birdlife and coastal ecosystems. Hardwood swamps, bogs, and beaches provide nesting grounds for hundreds of thousands of migratory shorebirds that share the environment with songbirds on their way to Central and South America. In addition, lots of hiking trails provide some of the best birdwatching and photo opps on the East Coast.
