Wildwood, NJ - Anyone familiar with the bay side?

I've stayed in Wildwood, NJ many times, but I've never stayed on the bay side. The place we're considering is a condo on Garfield Ave or something like that and it's close to the bay.
My boys like to fish and we girls like to shop and go to the beach. We also have 2 dogs we'll be bringing along. I was wondering if anyone is familiar with that area? Is there a beach on the bay side? How about fishing pier or place to fish? We can drive over to the ocean in a couple of minutes, but I wanted something within walking distance for part of our time.
Thanks!

I don't think there are any bay beaches in Wildwood proper. Wildwood Crest, yes, maybe in North Wildwood too, but not Wildwood itself. Fishing shouldn't be a problem, however. You might be able to fish or go crabbing from the bulkhead at the end of every street.

I agree with the pp. I don't think their are any bay beaches in Wildwood. I stay in North Wildwood and don't think they have any either.

I have gone to Wildwood my entire life in the summer for trips. I'm not an expert by any means but it is the only shore town I go to.

Garfield Ave is about 10 blocks north of Rio Grande which is the dividing line for the Crest and Wildwood so you will be in the main area of Wildwood.

As far as I know there are no bays or bay beaches in any of the Wildwoods. There are some sounds and inlets but I don't recall ever seeing an area to swim and the water is a little brackish back there.


I don't know of any fishing piers in the area of the Wildwoods either. I do like to take early morning walks on the beach and have seen people fishing right into the surf very early in the morning.

Wildwood just passed a ordinance allowing dogs on one block of beach at Poplar St. I believe from the boardwalk to the ocean but I'm not positive. I haven't made my trip down there yet this year.

Hope that helps. And as someone else said, "Watch the Tram car please!"

There seems to be some info at this website...somewhere to start anyway!
Our family used to vacation in Wildwood Crest every year until I turned 17 and was old enough to get into trouble .
