“Every time I slip into the ocean,” marine biologist Sylvia Earle once said, “it’s like going home.”
It’s true: the sea possesses that elusive quality, that sense of belonging that no other place on Earth can quite match. You, wise wanderer, have stuck a toe in every ocean you can find, but there are none quite like the vast Atlantic. Yes, she may hurl a howling storm at you now and again, but you also know her gentle side: the soft waves lapping against the shoreline, the secrets concealed in her deepest trenches. Return to your home away from home when you book one of our hotels in Wildwood Crest, NJ, and let the Atlantic welcome you.
A gentle walk through this borough reveals beachfront houses as colorful as sunrises. You can marvel at their architecture…but the real draw is further east, where the sea kisses the white sand. The best hotels in Wildwood Crest look over the thundering Atlantic, where you can watch her cast her spells as you enjoy a morning cup of coffee. Should you arise before the sun stirs from its slumber, then tiptoe out onto the beach and wait. Watch the horizon shift through a multitude of glowing colors before finally giving way to glorious gold as the sun heaves its way up from the depths.
After a stout breakfast, wander further afield when you rent a car in Wildwood Crest. Some 45 miles north is the famed Atlantic City, with its tall tales, gambling scions, and seemingly endless lights. Should you get swept up in the excitement of the moment—like the ocean, this town can roar when she pleases—fear not: our hotels in Atlantic City are here to give you the good night’s rest you deserve.
