I love Wildwood, NJ because it is a coastal town with beautiful beaches and a boardwalk that runs down the beach with many places to eat and lots of things to do.

The boardwalk and beach is my favorite thing to do there. Negatives would be the high prices.

Great neighbors! Kind yet cool. Convenient. Never a problem of any kind. I respect the data. But we just don't see or experience it.

Sea wall, boardwalk and fireworks, restaurants, free beaches and playgrounds.

The data is skewed for wildwood and all shore towns. It's a crimes per capita calculation, which doesn't account for the huge non-resident population increases during the summer months.
