Little Las Vegas

By Linda Tancs

The glitzy past of New Jersey’s shore town, Wildwood, once earned it the nickname Little Las Vegas.  In fact, in its heyday in the 1950s, all the major acts would ply their trade among the nightclubs and supper clubs, including talent like Tony Bennett and Jerry Lewis.  The old clubs are long gone, but the doo wop era is in full swing thanks to the Doo Wop Experience Museum & Back to the ’50s Neon Night Tour.  Enjoy the history lesson along with the beautiful beaches and legendary boardwalk.
