The beaches of Wildwoods, N.J., recently received some much-deserved recognition.  

Better Homes & Gardens named Wildwoods to their list ‘Top 10 Beaches You MUST Visit With Your Family.”

Editors and the travel writer of the magazine selected the top 10, which are named in random order. The magazine noted:

“From 1950s mod-style motels to boardwalk custard stands and amusement arcades, this classic Jersey Shore town packs a lot into its 5 miles. Take the kids crabbing, show them your Skeeball prowess, then dance the night away at an evening concert.”

More than nine million people visit the area each year. The beaches, which stretch for 5 miles, are free for visitors. Wildwoods also was recently named TripAdvisor’s No. 1 Destination on the Rise for 2015, as well as a number of awards from different organizations such as FamilyFun magazine and Thrillist.com.  

“We know that nowhere in the state or even in the nation can you find a better free beach or shore destination that offers so much fun, and excitement and free activities to its visitors than in the Wildwoods,” says Siciliano, executive director, Greater Wildwoods Tourism Improvement and Development Authority. “We are thrilled and honored to be recognized nationally by Better Homes & Gardens as a must-visit destination—frankly we couldn’t agree more.”

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.  

 

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.
