The 38-blocks of Boardwalk feature shops, arcades, games, eateries, three waterparks and amusement piers with rides and attractions.
After World War II, The Wildwoods became a boom town, attracting big name musicians and average folks alike. Before the “Twist” became a pop phenomenon, Chubby Checker performed it for crowds at the Rainbow Supper Club on Pacific Avenue. Fats Domino, Danny and the Juniors, Diana Ross, and Sammy Davis, Jr. were all fixtures here.
