The Garden State Parkway is a turnpike that crosses New Jersey from south to north. It begins at the southern tip of the state at Cape May. From there, it heads north across the state, all the way to the New York state line. Not too far from Cape May, in Cape May County, is exit 6. This exit ramp leads to Route 147, which drivers may travel along to reach North Wildwood and Whitesboro.
North Wildwood is the northernmost town on Five Mile Beach, a barrier island off the Atlantic coast. North Wildwood, along with three other towns with “Wildwood” in the name, collectively form “The Wildwoods”, a popular resort area. The population of The Wildwoods has been known to triple from winter to summer as vacationers pour into the area to enjoy the beaches and boardwalks.
Whitesboro is a quiet town of about 2,200 located along the Garden State Parkway. It was named after George Henry White, an African-American investor who had a vision of a community where black Americans could live free of discrimination. White, along with fellow investors Paul Laurence Dunbar and Booker T. Washington, founded the planned community of Whitesboro to realize this vision.
We’ve recreated the Garden State Parkway exit sign for Exit 6 in a much smaller size, allowing you to add this wonderful piece of Jersey flavor to your home. Our interpretation of the Garden State Parkway Exit 6 sign is made using the modern 2009 MUTCD specifications for freeway signage. It is flat-printed on heavy 14-gauge steel. Its non-reflective high-gloss coating performs well indoors, yet can also withstand the elements outdoors.
We offer our Garden State Parkway Exit 6 sign in three sizes, to accommodate any unique display needs. Choose from 14 in. × 8 in., 21 in. × 12 in., and 42 in. × 24 in. sizes. All sizes include mounting holes for your convenience. (Want this sign in a size not listed here? Or a sign just like this for the exit by your house?
