It’s also the location of fictional Gotham City, so Batman is a local.

Weird Week (why not?) takes place in Ocean City during mid-August, billed as a “wacky but not tacky” event featuring unusual entertainment for the whole family. If ear-wiggling isn’t your thing, there are some truly extraordinary sculpting contests using taffy, French fries, giant cookies and paper clips. Nothing weird about that!

Less wacky is the International Kite Festival, which takes to the skies above Wildwood in late May. Don’t miss opening night, usually on the last Friday in May, when the festival kicks off with an illuminated kite fly on the beach.

There’s more looking skywards at the Atlantic City Air Show in late August. Called Thunder over the Boardwalk, this summer highlight sets the bar for beachfront air shows, with flybys coming so low over the waterfront that you’ll want to duck! Military aviation enthusiasts can enjoy demonstrations featuring aircraft like the A-10 Thunderbolt, F-14 Tomcat, F-15E Strike Eagle and F-16 Fighting Falcon.
