Worlds of fun on Wildwood, NJ’s boardwalk

Wildwood, New Jersey, on the southern end of the Jersey Shore, is such a fun place to go. I think everyone should go there and these are my top reasons:

MOREY’S PIER On the pier there are stores where you can buy things like bracelets, shirts and toys. There are also great rides. My favorite ride is the Kite Flyer. You lie down flat on your stomach in a harness and they lock you in. Then you get lifted up and the ride goes up and down in a circular rotation. It feels like you are hang gliding. There are also water parks and shows on the boardwalk and a trolley that takes you from one end of the boardwalk to the other.

THE BEACH The sand at the Shore is so soft and white. When we were there the waves were small so you can go right out into the water and relax. And the beach is so huge that there is always enough space for you and your family. While I was there they had a sand castle contest. They also have sports tournaments and even concerts.

THE HOTELS There are so many, and we stayed at the Water’s Edge Ocean Resort. It was right on the beach and had a big pool and an ice cream shop. The room had a great view of the pool so you could see when it was crowded or not. It also had a game area next to the pool where you could play pool or ping-pong, and the rooms had mini kitchens. And you could walk to the pier or the beach anytime.

BIKE RENTAL Right outside of the hotel was a bike rental shop. You could rent a regular two-wheel bicycle, a three-wheel one or even a family bicycle. I rented a three-wheel bike that I could take up and down the pier and raced my brother.

UNCLE BILL’S PANCAKE HOUSE This is my best place to go to breakfast. They have all kinds of pancakes and waffles. They also have eggs and sandwiches. You can have regular, fruit, peanut butter or chocolate chip or even ice cream pancakes and they give you so much. My favorite part is that they serve pancakes all day long.
