The Jersey Shore
First opened to vacationers in 1956 at the height of the Wildwoods' "Doo Wop" heyday, the Caribbean Motel was among the most daring, imaginitive structures to be built in the resort during that era of post-World War II optimism and leisure when everyone had one eye on the future and the other on dreams of exotic vacation destinations. The Caribbean rolled both of those fascinations into one with a motel that sported ultra-modern architectural elements like a futuristic "levitating" ramp, canted glass walls, and recessed "spaceship" lights along with "exotic" landscaping and theming including the very first plastic palm trees to be "planted" in the Wildwoods, giving vacationers the feeling of being in a far-away tropical paradise while only a short drive from home on the Jersey Shore.
Get back to the Fabulous 50's and Sixties for vintage Doo Wop. The rates are great and so is this property. Rock on!
