After Cape May was named New Jersey's best small town by Good Housekeeping last week, another Cape May County town is bringing home a national award. Travel & Leisure, the biggest travel magazine in the country, just ranked America's 10 Best Dog Beaches. And Wildwood is on the list!
Here's what they had to say in their article:
There's nothing like a nice day on the beach with your entire family. And we mean your whole family — dogs included.
Dogs have long been man's best friend, but more than ever, people are considering their furballs just another one of the group. According to a 2019 survey by SpotOn Virtual Smart Fence, 98% of people surveyed consider their dogs to be members of the family. That makes it little surprise that more people are looking to take their pets on vacation with them too, including to beach vacations around the nation. If you're looking to travel with your pup to a gorgeous beach for your next getaway, we're here to help. Here are 10 of the best dog-friendly beaches in America.
Fido will have a field day at this doggie beachside paradise. Wildwood Dog Beach, located in the town of Wildwood, has everything a pup would need for an excellent day at the shore. That includes a fully fenced-in sandy park area and the chance to charge into the ocean for a little swim. (Note: Dogs on the beach must remain leashed, but leashes in the park are optional.) There are also plenty of poop bags on hand, so you can leave the beach as clean as you found it.
