Monkey See, Monkey Do: Why you Should Visit the Cape May County Zoo

Friday, July 25, 2014
Sometimes the best things in life are free. Besides oxygen, friendship and the unconditional love of your family, you can count on the Cape May County Zoo to fall in line with this popular commonplace dictum.

With over 550 critters representing over 250 species, the Cape May County Zoo offers free admission to their zoo for everyone. The zoo is supported by the non-profit organization Cape May County Zoological Society. This society continuously strives to maintain the zoo for conservation purposes and for the enjoyment of the community. To help keep the zoo alive they are always accepting donations and encourage you to become a “ZooFriend.”

From animals like the Bennett’s Wallaby to the Iberian Ribbed Newt, visitors can be sure to find a favourite in the vast array of flora and fauna. Just last September a baby female giraffe was born to a dam and sire and now roams the grounds of the zoo in her herd. The birth of this calf is the first in over a decade at the Cape May County Zoo.

The Zoo also offers a series of events to the public including their popular Night Walks where visitors can enter the zoo after hours for an additional fee and observe the animals after dark. Also coming up is their Scales and Slime day on August 5th where guests can check out the many amphibians and reptiles as well as make some gooey slime.

The Cape May County Zoo is a family affair, and they encourage anyone to come out and see the splendid wildlife. Putting conservation above all else, their skilled staff and zookeepers give the utmost care to their creatures and hope the community can benefit from their efforts.

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!

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.
