The one-touch easy access app provides information on entertainment, places to stay, restaurants, shops and feature an events calendar. Even more fun is the Wildwoods Earth Cam (a 24-hour webcam), a 10-day weather forecast, ocean tides, ocean temperatures, contest information and the destination’s comprehensive vacation planner and guide.
