Hats of to Wildwoods

The beaches of Wildwoods, N.J., recently received some much-deserved recognition.  

Better Homes & Gardens named Wildwoods to their list ‘Top 10 Beaches You MUST Visit With Your Family.”

Editors and the travel writer of the magazine selected the top 10, which are named in random order. The magazine noted:

“From 1950s mod-style motels to boardwalk custard stands and amusement arcades, this classic Jersey Shore town packs a lot into its 5 miles. Take the kids crabbing, show them your Skeeball prowess, then dance the night away at an evening concert.”

More than nine million people visit the area each year. The beaches, which stretch for 5 miles, are free for visitors. Wildwoods also was recently named TripAdvisor’s No. 1 Destination on the Rise for 2015, as well as a number of awards from different organizations such as FamilyFun magazine and Thrillist.com.  

“We know that nowhere in the state or even in the nation can you find a better free beach or shore destination that offers so much fun, and excitement and free activities to its visitors than in the Wildwoods,” says Siciliano, executive director, Greater Wildwoods Tourism Improvement and Development Authority. “We are thrilled and honored to be recognized nationally by Better Homes & Gardens as a must-visit destination—frankly we couldn’t agree more.”

Hotel Emery and Fleur de Lis are teaming up for a Brunch, Blooms and Bottomless Bubbly event on Sunday, Oct. 20. The event will include a family-style brunch from Emery's restaurant Giulia and executive chef  Josh Hedquist and a floral design session instructed by Fleur de Lis experts. With a lobby filled with lush greenery, Emery makes for the perfect location for a floral-focused event.

 

This October, the Xcel Energy Center and Saint Paul RiverCentre will celebrate a decade since the launch of their unrivaled sustainability program, as well as their recent LEED Platinum Certification.
