The Doo Wop Preservation League was formed in 1997 by a group of Wildwood business owners, town devotees, architecture buffs and kitsch lovers with a serious commitment to the Wildwoods' past and future. The league's efforts come in response to studies conducted by the University of Pennsylvania, Yale University and Kent State University, validating and crediting the Wildwoods with having the largest collection of mid-century commercial (or "Doo Wop") architecture in the nation, taking the form of 1950s-era resort motels, diners, restaurants and vintage neon signs.

  • Great history of entertainers who started in Wildwood plus REPRO furniture . Can walk around at your leisure . Neon signs from past restaurants and motels light up the whole place. Snacks , hot dogs are great so are milk shakes.
  • Very bad experience.. tables were not being cleaned properly.. did not realize until after we were done eating.. there was one older bus lady doing the entire place by herself.. when i told the cashier about my concerns she said oh no shes using spray..i then stood and watched her clean my table.. no spray.. i said something again and was told have a nice day..besides covid.. it should be cleaned including the chairs
