Wildwood is a very popular tourist destination located on the New Jersey Shore. The most notable beach features 1.8 miles of boardwalk and is home to several great shops and amusement parks! There is always something to do on the Boardwalk. Due to the far distance between the ocean and boardwalk (the beach is huge!), sporting events, concerns, and rallies all take place on the beach! Wildwood was ranked the best beach in New Jersey in the 2008 Top 10 Beaches contest!
Students love working here for the caring, fun staff, the proximity to the beach and the opportunity to meet lots of Americans and practice their English. With Philadelphia and New York a bus ride away, and hundreds of J1 students living in Wildwood, its easy to see why this is a popular destination for Work and Travel students!
