Drive into Wildwood on Wildwood Boulevard and you'll see reminders of the Doo-Wop style that made the city a haven for rock and roll music in the 1950s and 1960s. A visit to the Doo Wop Experience museum could make a nice side trip with your children and their grandparents.

The Boardwalk itself has amusement parks, video arcades and shops. The T-shirts on display are sometimes risque or have crude slogans. The beaches are wide, so prepare for a long walk to the water. A good idea would be to bring shoes for your children when the sand gets hot in mid-summer. Flip-flops offer little protection when the sand is scorching.

Wildwood has a vast array of eateries throughout the island, from sit-down Italian restaurants, fast food joints and pizza and snack food fare.

There are traffic meters so bring quarters along. There are also parking lots. The closer to the beach, the harder it will be to get a good spot so don't be too choosey during a busy day.

Wildwood's Fox Park in downtown has a nice playground.
