Better Homes & Gardens Names the Wildwoods Among Nation’s Best Beaches

In its July issue, Better Homes & Gardens chose the Wildwoods as one of the nation’s “Top 10 Beaches You Must Visit With Your Family.” The list was curated by magazine editors and a travel writer who had this to say about the family-friendly Jersey beach:

From 1950s mod-style motels to boardwalk custard stands and amusement arcades, this classic Jersey Shore town packs a lot into its 5 miles. Take the kids crabbing, show them your skee-ball prowess, then dance the night away at an evening concert.

The Wildwoods is by far the closest beach to Philly on the list. The locale has actually been enjoying a lot of listicle love this year. It was recently named TripAdvisor’s “No. 1 Destination On the Rise,” praising its mix of family- and adult-friendly activities; and called it the most beautiful place in New Jersey on a list of top stunners in each state. readers backed up the sentiment by voting this year to make it New Jersey’s “Best Shore Town.” Do readers agree?
