Romantic Beach Getaway: Nostalgic Fun at the Jersey Shore

National Geographic Image Collection / Alamy

Wildwood, NJ

Getaway from: Washington, D.C., New York

Embrace 1950s nostalgia in Wildwood, one of the Jersey Shore’s barrier islands. Here, the romance is in playing in the waves of the two-mile powder-sand beach, or walking along the boardwalk with an ice cream in hand. Stay at the funky Starlux resort straight out of The Jetsons (don’t worry, though: the retro lines and colors of the bright rooms are in fact new). Woo your love with Black Angus burgers served under neon lights at the classic Doo Wop Diner, and for dessert, head to the old-fashioned ice cream shop, Cool Scoops, for a classic banana split among jukeboxes and vintage Cadillac front-ends.
