Wildwood Voted Nation’s #2 Best Dog Friendly Beach By USA TODAY
The Wildwoods Dog Beach received the 2nd most votes, ranking it #2 overall in the nation.
“It’s an honor to be named among the best in the nation in anything,” said John Siciliano, executive director/CFO of the Greater Wildwoods Tourism Improvement & Development Authority.
“Many families consider their four-legged friends family members and insist on traveling with their pets, so the Wildwoods make it possible for the entire ‘family’ to vacation together by offering a number of pet-friendly hotels-motels and a designated area of beach just for them,” he added.
The Wildwoods Dog Beach is a designated dog-friendly beach on Poplar Avenue in Wildwood where dogs, along with their owners, are able to enjoy a fun-filled day at the beach.
Tails have been wagging as dogs make their way across the Boardwalk and onto the sand and past the 25-foot-tall Fire Hydrant Sculpture at the entrance to the Dog Beach.
The block-and-half-long, 190-yard-wide area is open from 6 a.m. until dusk and the beach is well equipped with furry-amenities including water stations, signs telling doggy owners to clean up after their loved ones and plastic bags for scooping up after their pets.
