Family Fun with Animals - Zoos, Aquariums, Museums and More!

Posted by: NJ Kids Team - January 23, 2014

January Indoor Fun: Animals

Family Fun with Animals - Zoos, Aquariums, Museums and More!

 

Don't let the latest cold snap keep you stuck indoors. This week why not think "Animals" - make it a week of animal fun! And to help you get started, NJ Kids has a couple of suggestions: How about spending the day at a zoo - the Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange, Bergen County Zoo in Paramus, and the four zoos in NY run by the WCS (Bronx, Central Park, Queens and Brooklyn Zoo) are perfect for colder days: there are plenty of indoor exhibits (plus outdoor ones, too!). Then there are aquariums - down in Camden is the Adventure Aquarium (Frogs: Nature's Messenger just opened) and for a more intimate marine visit, check out Jenkinson's Aquarium in Point Pleasant. Insect lovers can squirm over to Insectropolis in Toms River, and in Columbia, you can take at guided wolf tour at the Lakota Wolf Preserve. And that's just the start - lots of museums (Newark Museum, Morris Museum, Museum of Natural History) all have "stuffed" animal exhibits and of course at Imagine That! in Florham Park younger children can pretend in the Vet Center! The possibilities are endless! For more ideas, don't forget to check out our website at njkidsonline.com. Stay warm and have fun!
