City Guide: Wildwood, NJ

Travel Guide: Wildwood, NJHappy Monday friends! I know typically for city guides I give you all the dirt you in on where to go and what to do, but this one has a bit of a twist to it since I didn’t actually stay in Wildwood. Why even share then, I’m sure you might be wondering. Well, I came across Tyler Haughey’s photo series of retro motels and decided to go and do one of my own!

It turns out as a beach town in off season, everything is completely empty. There was even one point where I was the only person on the beach. I was able to explore freely and take photos without having to wait for people to get out of the shot. Plus, guys, how could I not share these colors with you?! They’re a pastel spring dream. Okay, okay, enough talking! Here are the photos!

Travel Guide: Wildwood, NJWhile the pool is super gross, I love the coloring of the water paired with the dead plants around the edges. It’s nowhere near my go to palette but I can’t help but be drawn to it!

Travel Guide: Wildwood, NJThe only disappointment of the trip was that the ferris wheel wasn’t functioning. I guess that’s reason enough to go back during the warmer months to see the city come alive!
