What makes this recognition unique is that the list is not entirely comprised of amusement piers, including other destinations known for fishing, recreation, and sightseeing.
This excerpt from the write-up is sure to make any Wildwood fanatic beam with pride:
"Nearby Atlantic City invented the ocean amusement pier in 1882. The Morey family has perfected it."
And congrats to all of our friends over at Morey's Piers on this latest honor.
