Many travelers flock to the Wildwoods – Wildwood, Wildwood Crest and North Wildwood – because there is always something to do. The legendary boardwalk has three amusement piers featuring over 100 rides and attractions, including world-class roller coasters and three beachfront waterparks. There’s also jet skiing, parasailing, wave running, surfing and speedboat rentals. At night, Wildwood comes alive with more adult fare, like dance clubs, Irish pubs, lounges and sports bars.

I’m such a geek though, that I’ve always found the kitschy architecture amazing. The Wildwoods Shore Resort Historic District, or Doo Wop Motel District, was home to over 300 motels built during the Doo-Wop era of the 1950s and 1960s. Officially recognized as a historic district by the State of New Jersey, it lies along a two mile stretch between Atlantic and Ocean Avenues, primarily within Wildwood Crest. The term doo-wop was coined by Cape May’s Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts in the early 1990s to describe the unique, space-age architectural style.

The motels are very stylized, with Vegas-like neon signs, fantastic architecture, and my favorite, plastic palm trees. Both the Caribbean Motel in Wildwood Crest, and the Chateau Bleu Motel in North Wildwood are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Doo Wop motels generally include U-shaped or L-shaped designs of two or three stories, asymmetric elements, swimming pools, adjacent parking or second story sun decks over parking spaces, angular walls or windows, flat overhanging roofs, prominent neon signs and railing, bright colors, and a contemporary or fantasy theme. References to popular culture or history were also common. The themes have great names like Modern/Blastoff, Vroom, Chinatown Revival, Tiki (Polynesian Pop), and Phony Colonee.
