The Wildwoods Dog Beach was recently named one of the top 10 ‘Best Dog Friendly Beaches’ in the 2016 10Best Readers’ Choice travel award contest sponsored 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.
