Commissioners’ Message

Now that the halcyon days of Wildwood’s summer 2016 are part of our memories, we invite you to experience winter in Wildwood.

The holiday season here in one of America’s favorite beach towns is just as exciting as a summer Saturday night.

Join the crowd of people lining the streets as marching bands, fire trucks, local businesses and dignitaries parade along Pacific Avenue to welcome Santa to Wildwood. Join the jolly old elf as he makes his way to the front of the Wildwoods Convention Center’s lawn to light the Christmas tree.

What would the holidays be without candy? And our local firefighters continue a tradition more than 100 years in the making when they stuff stockings that they present to local school children. Just like a century ago, tucked inside each stocking is an orange, peanuts and candy – just what Santa ordered!

Basketball is the order of the month when the Boardwalk Basketball Classic comes to town. We encourage you to come and root for your favorite high school in the largest holiday co-ed basketball competition in the nation.

Or, come enjoy the quiet solitude of our magnificent beaches and world-famous Boardwalk. Listen to the call of the gulls and watch the sun sparkle like diamonds across the water.

Winter’s the perfect time to put Fido or Fluffy in the car and drive down to visit our famous dog beach. Let your pet unleash their thirst for fun and experience a holiday on the sand.

Many of our world-class local hotels and motels offer lodging during the winter months and many of our restaurants remain open.

Here’s to a wonderful holiday season filled with Wildwood Days!

Merry Christmas
