My boardwalk list reflects my age of 58 as my best boardwalk memories date to the 1970's. In no particular order here it is:
Jungleland at Hunts Pier. It seemed so real as a little kid.
The Flyer roller coaster at Hunts Pier.
The Skua Pirate ship also at Hunt's Pier. Seeing a pattern here!
Dracula's Castle. Just a great dark attraction.
Hunt's Skyline Golf. Great fun at night for a 10 year old.
Hunt's Pier back in it's heyday was like a mini Disneyland.
Most of my restaurant favorites reflect my adult life from my early 20's to the present.
Ed Zaberers. Nothing else like it and I went there both as a kid and an adult until it burned down in the early 1990's. Huge drinks and Prime Rib.
The original Two Mile Inn at Two Mile Landing. Great food and atmosphere and I really enjoyed the second floor raw bar having drinks overlooking the water while waiting for a table. My favorite meal was blackened Mako shark.
Luigi's. On Pacific Ave. in Wildwood. It had great Italian as well as steaks. Just a really nice place.
Urie's Reef and Beef in Wildwood. On Rio Grand Ave. on the old Jones Boys site it had great tropical cocktails and seafood. I really liked their swordfish.
Piro's in North Wildwood. We just lost this great NWW restaurant as it was torn down this past early spring after not opening last year. Loved their tour of Italy and veal parm. They also had $10 bottles of wine I believe on Monday nights.
