Amazing what was found on this Jersey Shore beach
It’s not beach season, but fall and winter are great times to visit Jersey Shore beaches. Less crowded and plenty of parking lol but seriously its a very scenic walk and a day trip. If you plan to hike the beach in the fall and winter, just bundle up.
Last weekend it looks like some people took a walk on Wildwood Beach and got their minds “blown” … pun intended.

According to a recent Room article, residents of Wildwood discovered a historic find on the beach, which they eventually took home. According to reports, Wildwood Police responded to a call on Saturday saying someone had found possible ammunition.
At approximately 10 a.m. on Saturday morning, Wildwood Police and the Atlantic City Police Department Bomb Squad responded to an area of West Pine Avenue in Wildwood.
According to Patch, police said ammunition had been identified as a WWII-era 120mm projectile and was a live bullet.
The ammunition was taken to the beach and then declared safe. Scary stuff because it was “live” and you never know with these things … always contact the authorities when you spot something like this.
Some homes were evacuated, but after several hours residents were allowed to return home and everything was safe with no issues to report.
