Visit Wildwood, NJ, The Perfect Jersey Shore Family Trip

Wildwood New Jersey is a super family-friendly destination on the Jersey Shore! It is walkable, full of activities, parks, and of course the beach and boardwalk. It’s Wildwoods is made up of three towns—North Wildwood, Wildwood, and Wildwood Crest. It boasts five miles of beach, and a two-mile boardwalk, and the famous Morey’s Piers and all the amusement park fun that comes with it!

We decided to take a December / winter trip to Wildwood for relaxing family getaway and it was just what the doctor ordered! Wildwood in the winter is full of magic; chilly beach walks, light shows, hot cocoa and much more. 

Where to stay in Wildwood, NJ

The Hen Houses are the PERFECT family-friendly spot to stay in Wildwood, NJ open year round. The Hen Houses is a new micro-resort located right in the heart of Wildwood. This micro-resort has 6 smaller homes (2 bedrooms) for rent and a larger Manor (4 bedrooms) that can be rented out for a big family getaway, event, or retreat. 

Each of the houses are fully equipped with everything you can possibly need; from spices for cooking, dishwasher pods, laundry supplies, down to the q-tips and makeup remover pads. This is literally the best of both worlds because you are renting the whole house, but you get the accommodations you would receive at a hotel – daily cleaning, fresh towels, etc. They even had a rollaway crib for our toddler! 

Some of my favorite amenities of the resort include: firepits, on-site pool, bikes to use during your stay, on-site parking included with your stay, cornhole, and ping pong tables. Each house also has a cozy porch and fireplace. You can easily walk to the beach, boardwalk, eateries, parks, shops, and much more from here.
