hi Olga. There are many older homes in Wildwood that rent out to the summer help that comes in every summer. They are older and not in th ebest of shape but its somewhere to stay while you work in Wildwood. Does the program you guys are using to come here have a list of homes that will rent to you ??

Hope you find what you want.

Hi Olga,
I'm sure the program you are working for will have some sort of housing available for you and your friends. Last summer when we were in Wildwood, it seemed that everybody who was working there was from EE.

Good luck and have fun!

Default Living in North Wildwood

To anyone who is thinking of moving to the Wildwoods. I moved here in 91. I call it the land of Oz. It is the best decision I ever made. It is very safe here. If any one is thinking of making a change email me and I can help with any ??'s you may have.

Except in NJ our wonderful gov't will throw you in jail for trying to protect yourself in your own private house with a gun.

You just need out of West New York!

Seriously, I think off season would be nice and docile, but in season would just be more insanity....

I do need out of West New york. Just went to Wildwood a few days ago again and I noticed there are so many empty storefronts. It's sad that Pacific Avenue is looking so desolate.

ONe thing I didn't see any of are preschool and daycares? What do people do? I know there is no abbott down there? Maybe I should go down there and open a daycare?

Where do most people in Wildwood work anyway? ATlantic City? Philly? I can't see where one could get a good job.

Forget about it the Wildwoods are a very depressed area for work,the days of perment jobs are over and if mostly slave driven summer work,and the employers know it.And they use you up like a piece of dirt.If you know someone,you may get lucky and they will get you a job.But its mostly season,by season work.Good luck!

Certain areas of Wildwood are better than others. If you are in the part of town that is most touristy, take it from me it will drive you crazy in summer. Wildwood Crest is very nice!
