We browsed around the Doo Wop shop and enjoyed seeing all the memorabilia they have there. Also, there was an author there signing her books about Nostalgic Wildwood which we purchased and had her sign. It was 50's weekend so it was very busy!

Very cute and it's like revisiting the 50's and 60's. So much to see and the kids really enjoyed learning about what life was like 50 years ago.
