Surprising no one, the Wildwoods, N.J. has been named The Most Beautiful Place in New Jersey by Thrillist.com.

The website, which focuses on food, beverages and travel, surveyed residents and tourism boards from every state to find the most beautiful spots within each state.

The website noted the area’s boardwalk, downtown and beaches as reasons for bestowing the honor on the Wildwoods. There are three amusement piers and a number of shops, arcaes and more than 300 restaurants. The area also features more than 8,000 guest rooms and 3,000 vacation rentals.

“We’re extremely honored to be recognized by Thrillist.com, a website with a strong position on travel, as the Most Beautiful Place in New Jersey,” says John Siciliano, executive director, Greater Wildwoods Tourism Improvement & Development Authority.

The Texas Restaurant Association (TRA) led a coalition of business groups and their communities to drive support to the industry, for SB 8, the federal pandemic relief bill that included $180 million for local hospitality and tourism businesses. 

 

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

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.
