Beautiful beaches; friendly people, good places to eat and lots of fun things for families make this a great vacation destination. The Crest is quieter than the boardwalk area, but you can still get there easily. I’ve enjoyed going there for over 50 years!

Wildwood Crest is a great place to live. It is clean, safe and accessible to everything; the beach and the boardwalk.
Free concerts, fireworks and free beaches. Everything is very clean.
