Retro Roadmap Weekend- Wildwood New Jersey bound!

Posted on: July 2, 2009

This holiday weekend will find your hostess on a Retro Roadmap Roadtrip (my fave!) as she heads down to “The Shore” for a weekend in that wonderful place Wildwood, New Jersey.

The Wildwoods

Wildwood has probably more Mid Century Modern motels and signs than any place on the Eastern seaboard, and a visit is well overdue. My last stay there was close to 15 years ago (this was before the internet, kiddies– I had heard about Wildwood as a member of the Society for Commercial Archeology and made the 6.5 hour drive down on their recommendation alone!)

It wouldn’t be a Retro Roadmap Roadtrip if I didn’t plan on making a ton of stops both to and fro, as Hillis will attest.

If all works out as planned I should be able to post about New Jersey’s last surviving Drive In Movie Theatre, Roadside Root Beer Stands, Diners, Frozen Custard and “treasures yet to find”. Can’t Wait!
