This July 4th weekend, the city of Wildwood is the place to be. Between the Tim McGraw beach concert, the Bacon Festival and the fourth of July firework spectacular there is no shortage of fun activities for everyone.

Sadly we all can’t make it down the shore to celebrate our Independence Day on one of the best boardwalks in the country. For those who are stuck at work or don’t want to fight the crowds there is a cool way to feel like you are in Wildwood without actually being there.

The city has a few webcams which are installed at various points on the island giving viewers a live stream of the area. You can check out two non-audio views of the boardwalk from the Information Center and listen to the surf as people visit the famous Wildwood sign!

Whether you want a preview of the boardwalk before you go or you’re sitting in your office day dreaming of Wildwood, check out the views in the videos below and let us know what you think! Who knows, it might convince you to pack your bags and head down for a visit.
