Fun Family NJ Attractions for Summer
Lions and tigers and giraffe! If you’re treating the family to a summer getaway, be sure to head to Turtle Back Zoo. This family-friendly zoo in New Jersey belongs to the Essex County Parks Department.
There’s always something happening at Turtle Back, making it a must-do on your list of family NJ attractions this summer for the perfect day trip.
You and your family may like to have breakfast with the entertaining gibbons. The two white-cheeked gibbons love having visitors join them for a healthy breakfast and primate activities. Guests can talk to the keepers and help prepare the primate’s breakfast.
See a range of exhibits, including the Sea Lion Sound Exhibit, Penguin Coast Exhibit and even a Southeast Asia Exhibit where visitors get the opportunity to see a rare red panda and Amur leopard.
Throughout the summer, the zoo features a variety of special events. A favorite is Night Moves at the Zoo – with a guided tour of the creatures of the night! For a more adult affair, check out Brew at the Zoo on June 25, 2016.
