My wife and I like to go to North Wildwood, have stayed in the Villas the last two years, this was my first experience with the Villas and I was pleased with the area. We took a day trip to A.C. this past sunday and it was horrible, the beach was filthy, loaded with broken shells and peoples trash. If your not doing the casinos A.C. is crap. The only thing I ever really go there for is White House Subs, have been eating them for as long as I can remember. Once outside of A.C. everything gets noticably better, we took a ride along Ocean Dr. and checked out other beaches, what a difference. Looks like we will keep our Jersey Shore experience located further south. Post up your opinions about your favorite shore spots.
Not a shore person, but I'll take Ocean City, Maryland. It's a nice place, I haven't had much to compare to, but I would go back. But would rather head for a secluded campground in the mountains.........( unmainted roads, state forest roads, logging trails). More my speed.
