THE JERSEY CAPE. When you’re strolling the Boardwalk in Wildwood you’ll always hear “watch the tram car, please” and a funny, yellow moving car will pass by. Rolling chairs were replaced by tram cars in 1946 to take passengers from one end of the Boardwalk to the other for a nickel. OK, so today the price is a bit higher and the style of dress is more casual than the era of rolling chairs but the excitement of riding in these big yellow tram cars is just as much fun. www.wildwoodsnj.com
