2013, New Jersey, Theme Parks

New Jersey’s Wildwood was unscathed by Hurricane Sandy; more than 100 free events from Memorial Day to Labor Day

Wildwood and Cape May are probably the 2 best things about New Jersey. We are about 3 hours away but still go here every year – sometimes more than once.

Wildwood just contacted me and I’m glad to hear that they were undamaged by Hurricane Sandy. Wildwood’s Summer season starts on Memorial Day Weekend, but many events are already happening. Check out their calendar here. My only wish for this place is MORE haunted houses! (I know, I know, that’s not a surprise with me. :D )
