North Wildwood offers a wide variety of things to photograph on your photography journey. During the day you can see dynamic colors, moving waters and abundance of people in the area and on the boardwalk.
At night time you can do long exposure milky way photography just a short distance out of town on the beach. This is one of the very few places that the Milky Way is visible in New Jersey. There is also a fishing pier less in a less than ten-minute drive that makes for some great long exposure milky water effect photography and fabulous sunrise images. The bay side as ample opportunity for sunset photography.
We were very focused on the Milky Way on this trip that we need to go back for one more day. You can get a ton of light trails in and long exposure images at the amusement park on the boardwalk. If you stay at the Florentine Motel, which we highly recommend you do, it’s just a short walk to the boardwalk at night time to get your light trails while photographing the excitement of the town. We will be going back to get more night trail images of the boardwalk for you.
If you have your family along for the trip and they don’t want to follow you around doing photography, there are a plethora of things for them to do. There are also all kinds of festivals all season long, from the Elks Weekend, Boots on the Ground, The Firemen’s Convention, the Italian and Irish Festivals and more.
There is a bird sanctuary, The Cape May Wildlife Refuge, just a few miles away at the other end of the barrier island for our bird photographers. The snowy owl makes a showing at this location on occasion.
Nearby Avalon Beach Milky Way Night Photography
It’s a little too dark in North Wildwood but just a very short drive over to Avalon Beach you have dark enough skies to do Milky Way photography. The last image on the right is East Point Lighthouse which you can do on your second night traveling from this location. We are going to venture out to another area near the south side of Wildwood where the wildlife bird sanctuary is located. It may be dark enough to see the Milky Way and we will add our information in for you. We are also going back out for a night of amusement park long exposure light trail photography so more will follow in a Wildwood Photography Hot Spot, the other end of the barrier island.
While in North Wildwood Stay at the Florentine Family Motel
The Number One Ranked Traveler Hotel in North Wildwood
You will love this family owned and operated establishment. The owners live on the premises, and you are in very caring hands. We fell in love with the whole atmosphere and did not want to leave. This hotel is just a short hop from the beach and boardwalk and was immaculate in every area. The deck that overlooks the pool was quiet and relaxing. The atmosphere is geared towards families, and your children will enjoy the heated pool and dolphin swim at night. People have been coming here regularly for many, many years.
The one image of the TV screen with the number forty-five (that you see in our gallery) on the top displays the person’s name who has been coming back to the hotel for forty-five years. A customer coming back for that many years sums up how well you are treated and how excellent this hotel is. They display a long list of return customers and how many years they have been coming in the slideshow. If you stay here you too will want to come back year after year.
The service is outstanding. The dedication of the owners is very apparent when you see every last detail has been finely tuned. The wonderful personalities behind the desk may have a lot to do with why so many people keep returning year after year.
