The Fun Never Stops on America’s Most Famous Shoreline

Wednesday, January 28, 2015

People may think they know New Jersey; after all, much has been publicized through various media and entertainment portals on our lifestyles. But the truth is, New Jersey cannot be pigeon-holed, pegged, or even predicted. In fact, the only uniformity that can be found here is in that the residents are equally discordant in their lifestyles and interests! In Jersey, there is no event too small to celebrate, no manner too grandiose in which to do the celebrating, and no need to go looking for the party when it is always guaranteed to come to you. The fete awaits in Wildwood, so come join us at the diverting events:              

Boardwalk Kennel Club All Breed Dog Show, Jan. 28th-Feb.1st: So amorous is the bond between man and canine, how many of us dog lovers find ourselves whispering sweet nothings of our pooches being ‘the most perfect dog in the world’ into their floppy ears on an almost daily basis? Now comes the time to really put this to the test at the Kennel Club Dog Show, comprised of  Best of  Breed competitions, Obedience and Rally trials, puppy showdowns, Police K-9 unit demonstrations and more! This will be the culmination in canine competition; a display of fine breeding, pedigree, slobbery kisses and wagging tails. Contests being every morning at 8am, and tickets are $8 for adults and $2 for children under 12.

Wildwoods Casino Night, Feb.21st: Let luck be a lady tonight! Though if more of a capricious and relentless shrew she ends up being, burrow your woes deep in the delectable dishes of the buffet at the Bolero Hotel Resort & Conference Center, host of this year’s Wildwoods Casino Night! For a $25 admission price, attendees are given access to all playing tables, and $50 in chips that will hopefully evoke the chant ‘winner, winner, chicken dinner!’ by evenings end. Though if the opposite occurs and luck is not on your side, it is said that energy is never lost, only transferred…so think of what was contained in your now empty pockets as the energy flow to fill the minds of local students, as all proceeds earned will go toward educational scholarships.

At the Biscayne Resort on the Wildwood Crest, we know there is no shortage of things to do along our bustling shore. So we direct our focus on your comfort and rejuvenation, and we do so by ensuring with care that your every need is overseen. Book with us today and experience the blissful, replenishing effect of relaxation.

Take a Walking Tour Through the Wildwood Shore Resort Historic District

Tuesday, January 7, 2014
Wildwood Crest New Jersey has one of the largest concentrations of mid-century Doo-Wop architecture in the country. This unique style emerged in the 50s and 60s and influenced the design not only of buildings but of cars and consumer goods. It is characterized primarily by eye-catching “space-age” design elements inspired by the shapes of atoms, flying saucers, and jet planes.

In the case of the more than 100 motels and resorts that make up the Wildwood Shore Resort Historic District, the Doo-Wop style is accented by neon signs, plastic palm trees and bright colors. One example is our very own Biscayne Family Resort, constructed in 1968!
 
The Biscayne Family Resort, constructed in a Doo-Wop inspired style

The Doo-Wop style, sometimes referred to in architectural circles as the “Googie” style, is very much a product of 50s and 60s pop culture. These were exciting times, when a range of new technology was bursting on to the scene. Television, rock and roll and space travel were all exciting and novel concepts. This was also a period of unprecedented economic prosperity for the United States, and automobile culture was thriving.

With more people having the time and means to take vacations, Wildwood Crest grew to meet the demand. Enterprising hoteliers rapidly constructed motels to accommodate the automobile traveler and to appeal to the hip new aspects of pop culture. Thus, what we now know as the Doo-Wop motel district was born!

A motel pool displaying the characteristic plastic palm trees of the Doo-Wop style

Unfortunately, like many buildings and styles of the past, the Doo-Wop motels weren’t always seen as historically significant. As the 20th century drew to a close, many of the Wildwood Crest motels faced an uncertain future. However, following a renewed interest in the styles and architecture of the period, the Wildwood Crest motel district is now recognized and celebrated as one of the finest collections of the Doo-Wop style in the country.

For anyone visiting Wildwood Crest, we recommend you take the time to explore the Wildwood Shore Resort Historic district on a self-guided walking tour. Be sure to take lots of pictures. And when it comes to choosing a resort to spend your vacation at, look no further than the Biscayne Family Resort for comfortable and affordable Wildwood Crest accommodations.
