Wildwood Days

Yesterday we took a drive down the shore to Wildwood. Not everything was opened yet for the summer (or at any rate, the piers weren't opened yet...or may only be open on the weekend or something til the kids get out of school.

However, it was nice to be down on the boardwalk without all the crowds, even though it was strange not to see the rides running (not that we necessarily ride all the rides or anything).

We parked at a lot on Wildwood Avenue (the old lot that I used to use there is not there anymore, but this place was still very cheap for parking: $5.00 for the day). Went up onto the boards and walked half-length ('cause we tend to park towards the middle) towards the Spencer Avenue pier.

We usually don't go beyond that pier since there's not a whole lot that way. We started shopping in the Atlantic Book Wearhouse store that faces the pier. We didn't really find anything that grabbed us this time, which was odd.

We then stopped at "Snow White" on the Boardwalk and grabbed a pair of cheeseburgers fresh off the grill (only $0.99 each!). We then stopped into Jumbo's pizza for their famous giant slice of cheesesteak pizza (featured on the TV Food Network).

It was great with an Orange-Ade!

We walked the boards for a couple of hours. We were both a little too full (already? I know) to grab either a funnel cake or Curley's fries, but that's why we're going to have to make a few trips this summer!

Before heading home, we stopped into Laura's Fudge and picked up some fudge, some salt water taffy and I got some key lime chocolate truffles (yum!).

The food that Elvis would have loved...
I'd be more impressed if you'd found a place that sold deep-fried twinkies - or deep-fried candy bars - I'm not fussy.

You'd think some enterprising salesman would up such a business on a boardwalk.

Re: The food that Elvis would have loved...
oh...we did. We just didn't get any this time... Too full.

However, we marked where the place was that had the most variety. Deep fried:

  • snickers
  • three musketeers
  • milky way

I've had the oreos before...it's awesome. It's the same batter used for funnel cakes!

Man...those all just sound so...wrong somehow. Still, I think deep fried twinkies have to be the most alarming. I really want to try one - the only place I can think of in Winnipeg might be the Red River Exhibition.

I haven't been to Wildwood since I think I was a kid and I have such fond memories.

I need some freaking fudge, and deep fried chocolate... oh yes!

I need also a car... ;)

Yeah, the shore is kind of all about the food isn't it?
