Welcome to Wildwood 365!

Hey everyone, and welcome to Wildwood 365 - a new daily source for Wildwood-related news, nostalgia, games/trivia, and... well, just about anything and everything else!

I've been hoping to initiate a daily Wildwood blog for some time now. My hope is that this project can serve a multi-functioning purpose as a news, link and archive resource, in addition to simply being a place where readers can visit regularly for a daily Wildwood fix.

I will update with something new every day, even if it's just a random picture from my collection or a vintage postcard accompanied by a few thoughts.

As time goes by, I'll be implementing various features and hopefully a few contests and trivia challenges. So, please be sure to check back as often as possible.

And, by all means, if you have any ideas to improve the blog as we move forward, please don't hesitate to drop me a line at:

  1. there was always something to do in matter what your age..from the sacca twins review, frisco follies, scuhmanns pier (where they had big bands playing)to the starlite ballroom...please dont forget jerry blavat and his yon teeni all the fanastic rides on the boardwalk. I considered them very state of the art growing up in the 60's. How about the beach, I say no more. Pristine and immaculate...and still free.

  2. Here's one for you, My Mother and I came to live with Dad in Wildwood Crest 1946 Our first house was on Heather RD. At that corner of New Jersey their was an store or Snack place,,Does anyone remember the place, this is where We became friends with our furture Godmother for My Sister .
