Date Ideas in the Wildwoods

Published on

The Wildwoods is known for its family friendly atmosphere. Folks of every age come to enjoy the beach, the boardwalk, and the piers with all their fun rides and games. Each summer, the Panoramic is host to reunions of friends and reunions of families who take advantage of everything the Wildwoods has to offer for a week, only to come back the next year and the year after that.

But the Wildwoods isn’t just for family and friends. With its beautiful scenery, amazing dining options and relaxing atmosphere, the Wildwoods are the perfect place to spark romance. Whether you find a quick weekend to get away with your significant other or have time for a long vacation with your sweetheart, we have made a list of suggestions for some unforgettable romantic dates!

  1. Breakfast in the Sky – What sparks love like eating amazing food with your sweetheart on a ferris wheel 150 above sea level? Try the Shrimp and Lobster Omelet, or the Belgian Waffle with fresh fruit… but be sure to make your reservation in advance! This is a popular spot.
  2. Go Dolphin/Whale watching at sunset. There’s just something about those sunset colors dancing on the water that relaxes everyone… and the sudden sight of dolphins splashing that creates excitement! The Starlight Fleet, located 10 minutes away from the Panoramic Motel, offers the Cape May Sundown Dolphin Cruise which features light fare from The Fishhouse Market & Eatery.
  3. Try Stand Up Paddleboarding – this is a date for the adventurous. Try something new and see some of the beautiful nature surrounding the Wildwoods you may not otherwise get to while navigating an oversized surfboard with a paddle. Sound fun? Trust us, it is! SUP Guy is a recommended company to make reservations with, call them now with questions.
