America's most wonderful "waterfront" cities, that's a pretty impressive list to make and not one, but two New Jersey "waterfront" cities have made the grade according to Love Exploring. "Whether strolling along a river, seeking respite in a café on a beach boulevard or enjoying amusements on a pier, waterfronts are some of the best escapes from the hustle and bustle of a city."

Atlantic City

The first city named one of the most wonderful waterfront cities in America is the world-famous Atlantic City. I enjoy going to Atlantic City. I am not a big gambler but I love to stroll on the boardwalk, visit Steel Pier, and go out to dinner. Atlantic City is iconic and there's always something to do, whether it's a show or shopping.

Love Exploring had this to say about AC, "Often tipped as the East Coast's answer to the Las Vegas Strip, Atlantic City's Boardwalk dates back to the 1870s and still pulls in tourists today with its cute shops, ocean vistas and a handful of casinos."

The second New Jersey city to make the "Most Wonderful Waterfront Cities in America" list is Wildwood. Wildwood has one of the most exciting boardwalks on the entire east coast and thousands flock there every summer.

Here is what Love Exploring had to say about Wildwood, "An unmissable experience is the sprawling Morey's Piers. Covering six blocks, this beachfront amusement park has more than 100 rides and attractions as well as seasonal water parks. Founded in 1969, it offers the perfect combination of classic seaside amusements and thrilling, modern rides."

So congratulations to Wildwood and Atlantic City for making the list of the "Most Wonderful Waterfront Cities In America". Probably could add a couple more Jersey towns to this list, but I guess I am a little biased ;)
